Falcinelli was named to the Maryland All-State Team for three straight years. In games, he appears to have a nasty streak that you want from your offensive lineman.
Some of his other offers included Maryland, Stanford, Penn State, Boston College, West Virginia, Nebraska, and Virginia.
Both Clemson offensive lineman now have signed their NLI for Clemson.

Mickey Plyler on Falcinelli: "Clemson surprised some by grabbing an offensive lineman from Maryland. This is a big body that has a chance to develop after a red-shirt season. Some schools recruited him as an interior lineman, while some think he will be a tackle. My guess is that he may fit more inside starting out his career."
