Something unknown came to light on Wednesday morning when Cartersville senior tailback Rico Frye signed his National Letter of Intent to play football at Bowling Green.
“The journey has been fun,” Frye stated. “This has always been my dream. It’s great making that dream come true. It’s been fun. I’m really relieved that I got to sign a letter of intent with Bowling Green.”
Is Frye ready for the next step?
“Yeah, I’m ready for some college ball,” he replied.
The Falcons finished the 2017 season with a 5-7 record and ineligible for the postseason.
Frye had not announced where he was signing, but the Cartersville Recruiting Twitter account did announce that Frye would be signing an NLI on Wednesday. WBHF asked Frye about what attracted him to Bowling Green.
“First of all, they are number three in what I want to major in, which is business communication. The depth chart for running backs is very low, so I have a great chance of going up there and playing, even starting. When I went up there, it just felt like home.
Frye was the 2015 Fayette County offensive player of the year, an Adidas All American and was named to the All-State team three times.
Frye may have only played one year with Cartersville, but he said that the team and coaching staff left a mark:
“Coach King is amazing. He taught me a lot of things that I didn’t even know about football. He is a great coach. I came in and (the football team) brought me in and created great bonds. I love Cartersville. It felt like home.
