Recruiting notebook: TE Bryce Boyer first Bowling Green commit

4th gen Boyer to BG, Loeffler’s first 2020 commit

The first to commit to Bowling Green in the 2020 recruiting cycle is Bryce Boyer.

Boyer will represent the fourth generation of football players in his family to go to BGSU.

Boyer’s dad, Lee, was a standout linebacker in the early 90’s with two outright MAC championships, two bowl victories, and was a Second Team All-MAC linebacker in 1993 with academic honors too. Lee’s dad, Chester (or “Chet”)  was a MAC champion (it was shared but whatever) in 1965, then was named team captain two years later. Then there’s Rodney Boyer, who lettered at Bowling Green in 1937 and ’38.

That’s one hell of a family tradition to be a part of. doesn’t have a composite score for Boyer, so BG doesn’t currently appear on the site’s MAC rankings. But, with BG getting its first commit now, the only MAC teams without a commit for this year’s cycle are Akron and Central Michigan.
