Bowling Green 1,000-Yard Receiver Gehrig Dieter Transferring To Alabama For Final Season

Bowling Green's passing attack was absolutely prolific in 2015, averaging over 366 yards per game—good for fifth in the country. 6-foot-3 receiver Gehrig Dieter excelled in Dino Babers' high-octane offense, leading the team with 94 catches and finishing second with 1,033 yards and 10 touchdowns. With one year of eligibility remaining, he is heading to Alabama as a grad transfer.

Dieter made the announcement with a long note on Twitter.

He was quickly congratulated by BGSU quarterback Matt Johnson.

Dieter gives Alabama a solid possession receiver to go alongside big-play threat Calvin Ridley in Lane Kiffin's offense.
