Detroit Cass Tech's Brian Sanders, a 6'4, 225-lb defensive end, committed to Bowling Green, the first school to offer him a scholarship, on Tuesday.
"Bowling Green is a good school and the football program is good," he said. "They have a nice, good tradition, plus, it's on the rebound and then academically, they have one of the top business programs in the country. All of that was very appealing."
The Falcons were thrilled to hear of Sanders' commitment, the first of this class.
"They said they were excited, because I'm the first one. I talked to Coach McDaniel first, and he got excited, the he called Coach Hunter and Coach Hunter was excited."
On his spring break next week, he will head back down to campus for a visit. He hopes to bring teammates with him and eventually convince them to join him in Ohio.
"Right now, I'm trying to recruit Gary Hosey. I'm going to get him, trust me. I'm going to do my work and try to get William White to come here too. Now I'm a recruiter."
With his recruitment out of the way, Sanders can now concentrate on helping Cass Tech three-peat as state champions.
