Chippewas Insider has learned that tight end Ben McCord of Warren (Mich.) Cousino High School has given a verbal commitment to Central Michigan University.
Rated among the top players in the state of Michigan's 2011 class, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound McCord originally committed to Ball State in August over offers from the Chippewas and Toledo.
Following the firing of BSU head coach Stan Parrish last month, McCord began to reconsider his options. McCord will now join his brother Aaron McCord at CMU. An offensive lineman for the Chippewas, Aaron just completed his redshirt freshman season.
McCord becomes the 18th known commitment in CMU's 2011 recruiting class. Although he played wide receiver at Cousino, McCord is expected to play tight end for the Chippewas.
