  Tunde Fatukasi, an offensive tackle who spent two seasons at Rutgers, has transferred to Bowling Green State University, the program announced Tuesday night. The Far Rockaway, N.Y., native helped Erasmus Hall High School of Brooklyn, N.Y., win back-to-back Public Schools Athletic League championships in 2018 and 2019, earning all-city and all-conference honors. Fatukasi spent the 2020 and 2021 seasons at Rutgers but did not see any game action, giving him four years of eligibility with Bowling Green. Tunde Fatukasi is the younger brother of Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi, a University of Connecticut product, as well as linebacker Olakunle Fatukasi, who also played at Rutgers and signed as an undrafted free agent last spring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. - Toledo Blade

  Matt McDonald understands he doesn't have to become a man of steel to help the Bowling Green State University football team win games this season. McDonald, a senior, is entering his third season as the Falcons' starting quarterback. Since he transferred to the Falcons program from Boston College, McDonald has made strides each season. "Working on just understanding that we have a bunch of playmakers now," McDonald said at the Mid-American Conference football media day. "I don't need to try to be Superman out there and make plays that aren't necessarily there and take what the defense gives me. Take, check down, be patient. And then when the opportunities arise, then go after them."

McDonald last season completed 236 of 393 passes (60 percent) for 2,555 yards with 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His completion percentage soared from 44 (54 of 123) in the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season. He also rushed for four touchdowns, including both BGSU scores in the upset at Minnesota. "Probably the biggest thing that he's learned is, now that we've got some skill guys, he doesn't need to make every play," Bowling Green coach Scot Loeffler said. "And at times whenever he had so much youth around him, he forced the ball in some tight windows." - Toledo Blade

  08/02/22 - Karl BrooksrSr/2023, Bowling Green, 6-3, 295 (DS#22 DT) + More +

  Karl Brooks has been a staple on Bowling Green State University's defensive line since his true freshman season. Brooks, now a senior captain, appeared in all 12 games in the 2018 season. He established himself as a reliable contributor, starting eight times that season, including the final five. He has only improved since, and he appears primed for a big final season. "My goal is just to help my teammates," Brooks said on Tuesday at the Mid-American Conference football media day. "Be the best teammate that I can, put BG on the map, win of course. And personally, whatever's out there for me comes. My goal is to put my team first right now." Coach Scot Loeffler during the spring football game at Bowling Green State University's Doyt Perry Stadium in Bowling Green on April 23.

Last fall, Brooks finished the regular season with 7 1/2 sacks, which ranked fifth in the Mid-American Conference. He recorded five tackles and a sack against Tennessee in the 2021 season opener. "If you would have told me 2 1/2 years ago if he'd ever be a captain, I would've said no way," Bowling Green coach Scot Loeffler said after a game last season. "He's bought in." The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder finished the season with 42 tackles, including 12 1/2 for loss. - Toledo Blade

  Four Bowling Green State University football players have been named to the East-West Shrine Bowl 1000 list.

Ferguson (Baltimore) returns after missing the final four games of the season with an injury. When he went down with injury, he was the only player in the nation with 60+ tackles (68), 2.0+ sacks (2) and 4+ passes defended (4).

  Persistence on the recruiting trail can sometimes unearth diamonds in the rough. For Group of Five football programs like Bowling Green State University, the transfer portal has become a helpful tool to help boost depth at the top of rotations. Coach Scot Loeffler has utilized the portal for depth options in previous years, but over this offseason, he has pulled in Day 1 starters to help with a young nucleus. He might have killed two birds with one stone in sophomore defensive back Jordan Oladokun. "We've always thought he was a really good football player," Loeffler said. "He's got great speed, great hands, athletic. The most impressive thing besides his character are his mom and dad. His mom and dad are phenomenal. They get it. They know it's not going to be easy, and I think from their experience, they realized our staff was sincere, legit, and wanted to really mold Jordan into the best possible player and person he could possibly be."

Oladokun was a three-star recruit out of Gaither High School in Tampa, where he was a four-time all-state selection in football and an all-state selection in baseball. He committed to Iowa among 26 offers - 18 from Power Five programs and one from BGSU - but decommitted in October, 2020, amid racial discrimination allegations against coach Kirk Ferentz and the program. As a result, Oladokun attended Football Championship Subdivision program Samford and played six games in the 2021 season before sustaining a torn labrum. He entered the transfer portal, and eventually found a home with BGSU, Loeffler, and defensive coordinator Eric Lewis. - Toledo Blade

  The Bowling Green State University football program has added five additional transfers, according to head football coach Scot Loeffler. Offensive tackle Cedric Dunbar II (Jackson State), offensive guard Delonus Kabir (Florida A&M), wide receiver CJ Lewis (Boston College), defensive lineman Kitione Tau (Laney CC) and offensive tackle Kameron Stewart (Coastal Carolina) have signed letters of acceptance to BGSU. All five are on campus and working out with the team.

Dunbar II (Natchez, Mississippi) will have two seasons of eligibility after spending three years at Jackson State, two of which playing for head coach Deion Sanders. He appeared in 26 career games with 24 career starts. In 2021 Dunbar II started all 12 games in which he appeared, helping Jackson State go 11-2 and win the SWAC championship. JSU finished the season ranked No. 19 in the FCS coaches poll and No. 22 by STATS. - Sentinel Tribune
