ILB Nathaniel Locke chooses Bowling Green

Bowling Green has four commitments in its 2013 class, and three have come in the last week.

The latest verbal commitment for the Falcons came Tuesday when Massillon (Ohio) Jackson inside linebacker Nathaniel Locke pledged to coach Dave Clawson.

"Just the fact that the coaches are genuine people and they care about their academics, which are some of the best in the country," Locke said.

Butler, Notre Dame College and Robert Morris also offered the 6-foot, 220-pound prospect.
