WMU, Buffalo receive commitments, EMU loses one (already)

Chicago RB picks WMU

Mount Carmel is one of the more established programs from Chicago but its now-senior running back picked up just one scholarship offer: Western Michigan.

The Broncos offered Kyle Davis in early May, well after his visit in Kalamazoo back in late February. Davis announced his commitment to WMU Thursday night via Twitter.


Davis is listed at 6-foot, 205 pounds and is the fourth to commit to WMU during this recruiting cycle. Here are the rest of them:

Name POS From School 247sports comp. State
Boone Bonnema OLB Zeeland, Mich. Zeeland East 0.8366 Michigan
Kyle Davis RB Chicago, Ill. Mount Carmel 0.8199 Illinois
Marshawn Foster WR Chicago, Ill. Al Raby 0.7999 Illinois
Payton Thorne QB-dual Naperville, Ill. Naperville Central 0.7999 Illinois

Ohio TE commits to Buffalo

Tight end Tyler Stephens (Leavittsburgh, Ohio; LaBrae) is the first to commit to Buffalo after making his announcement on Tuesday.

On his Hudl page, Stephens is listed at 6-foot-5, 207 pounds and can also play some defensive end.

Not too many players from the Buckeye state end up on Buffalo’s football roster. Right now, There are six Ohio natives on Buffalo’s roster, which is fewer than what UB has in Florida natives (9).

Commitment to EMU lasts less than a week

Outside linebacker James Lewis tweeted (and has since deleted) his decommitment from Eastern Michigan. His commitment with the program lasted just a few days.

Lewis plays at Coffeyville C.C. and is entering his redshirt-sophmore season after transferring from Oklahoma State, where he was a walk-on out of high school.

EMU ‘s back to where it started: without a commit for the 2019 class.

Top NIU signee officially goes JUCO

It was up in the air for a little bit, but now it’s official: Charles Robinson is going the junior college route.

Robinson, by 247sports composite scoring, was Northern Illinois’ top signee for the 2018 signing class (0.8577) as a 6-foot-3, 210 pound wide receiver outside of Chicago.

Instead of going to NIU, Robinson will attend Iowa Western C.C. Until there’s reason to believe otherwise, it’s fair to think that Robinson is still committed to NIU, we’ll just have to do this same song and dance again in a few months when it comes to the early signing period in December.

Off the board: Damon Kaylor,

OT Damon Kaylor from Huntington, Ind. committed to Michigan State on Wednesday. Kaylor held 17 total offers including Ball State, EMU, Miami-OH, WMU, Ohio and NIU out of the MAC.

Luke Weerts is a linebacker from Batavia, Ill. that had a good pile of offers, but ultimately picked North Dakota State. His FBS offers included Ball State, NIU, Kansas State, Air Force and Cincinnati.
