Kyle Flood received a pledge from a 6'5" TE/DE from Valdosta, Georgia.

Todderick Hunt is reporting 6'5" Valdosta, Georgia tight end Anthony Folkerts has committed to become the tenth member of the Scarlet Knights 2015 class, consistent with some message board ruminations this morning.

Folkerts is a smooth pass catcher, and as a DE, shows the ability to get through the line to blow up a running play or get after the quarterback.  From watching his film, there is room for improvement as a blocker, and at 215 lbs, he will benefit from working with strength coach Cole, but it looks like he runs crisp routes, and goes up to get the ball. He also shows nice ability to make plays after the catch.

Folkerts also has an offer from UCF, and Todderick reports that Georgia, Georgia Tech and Duke are also showing interest. Kyle Flood appears to have uncovered another gem from the heart of SEC country.

There has not yet been the customary "New GA member of the FAMILY" tweet from Kyle Flood and neither Scout nor Rivals has reported this as official, so we await confirmation of Todderick's information.  Stick with On the Banks as this develops, and Welcome to Rutgers Anthony!

*** Update: Confirmation from Rivals

*** Update 2: There it is

Nice four day stretch for Kyle Flood, with three commitments on the offensive side of the ball in that span.
