In the world of recruiting, athletes often commit one day and de-commit the next, usually after something better comes along.

Dunedin coach Mark Everett predicts Falcons QB Ryan Singer won’t be one to follow that path.

A week ago, the talented 6-foot-4, 180-pound senior committed to Division I-AA Presbyterian. And …

“That’s his commitment,” Everett said. “He told everyone else. That’s the way it should be.”

Singer picked Presbyterian, which plays in the Big South Conference with programs such as Charleston Southern, Liberty and Stony Brook, after receiving an offer from Western Michigan and interest from Florida Atlantic and The Citadel.

“He liked the religious setting,” Everett said. “He’ll be the first to tell you he prayed about the decision. He went up and visited there, and visited The Citadel. He felt really comfortable there.”

A few days after making his commitment, Singer had arguably his best game of the season in leading the Falcons to their first win.
