Illinois Quarterback Commits to CMU

The Central Michigan University football program recently received a very important verbal commitment. This Illinois quarterback had three offers to consider, but he has decided to end his recruitment and become a Chippewa.

Chippewas Insider has learned that Lisle (Ill.) Benet Academy quarterback Dan LeFevour has made a verbal commitment to play football for Central Michigan University.

The 6-foot-4 LeFevour will be a three-year varsity starter for Benet Academy. Last season he threw for more than 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also rushed for more than 600 yards and 16 TDs.

"Dan has a strong arm, deceptive speed and makes good decisions on the football field," said Benet Academy head coach Gary Goforth. "He can make all the throws on the football field needed to be a D-I quarterback."

LeFevour also considered offers from Ball State and Eastern Michigan, and had interest from Big Ten schools Illinois, Northwestern and Wisconsin.

He becomes the third verbal commitment in CMU's 2005 recruiting class, joining tight end Allen Ollenburger and wide receiver Bryan Anderson.
