Forward Andre Smyth (6-7, 210) of Windsor (Ont.) Vincent Massey Secondary School made a verbal commitment to Central Michigan University late Monday night, according to his father, David Smyth.
"Andre committed Monday night after talking with (CMU head) coach (Jay) Smith," Mr. Smyth said. "We're very pleased. Jay is a fine man and a hard working coach. Andre is very excited to be going to Central Michigan."
Smyth is rated the No. 5 player in Canada and was selected to play in the Nike All-Canada Camp All-Star game this past July in Toronto. He averaged 26 points and 15 rebounds per game last season for Vincent Massey.
Besides CMU, Smyth entertained offers from St. Bonaventure, Fordham and Rhode Island of the Atlantic 10; and Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan from the MAC.
"We felt CMU was the best fit," Mr. Smyth said. "Our visit up there was great."
Smyth was recruited to play small forward for the Chippewas. He joins guards Jon Yeazel and Mike Kramer, guard/forward Aaron Richie, and forward Chris Kellermann in CMU's 2005 recruiting class.
The Chippewas still have one scholarship remaining for the class and could take 6-10 center Brandon Ford of Sarnia (Ont.) St. Clair Secondary School with the last scholarship.
