Chippewas Insider has learned that Central Michigan will host some key recruits this weekend, including six of seven verbal commitments.
Among the players making their official visits this weekend are the following who've already verbally committed to CMU: OL Adam Antonides of Lapeer (Mich.) West High School; WR Bryan Anderson, Rockford; TE Allen Ollenburger, Charlotte; TE Frank Zombo, Sterling Heights Stevenson; QB Dan LeFevour, Lisle (Ill.) Benet Academy; and OL Jeff Gilbert of West Chicago High School, who verbally committed to the Chippewas Wednesday.
Joining these six commitments are placekicker Rick Albreski (6-1, 170) of Addison (Ill.) Driscoll Catholic, linebacker Greg Marshall (6-1, 235) of Portage (Mich.) Northern, and LB Sam Williams (6-4, 205) of Westland John Glenn High School.
Albreski is rated as one of the top placekickers in the nation. He has a 58-yard field goal to his credit this season. Albreski has also been offered a scholarship by Bowling Green and has interest from a number of other Mid-American Conference and Big Ten schools.
Marshall is considered one of the top linebackers in the state of Michigan. In addition to CMU, his offers reportedly include Western Michigan, Buffalo and Toledo. His cousin, Keyonta Marshall, is a standout defensive tackle for Division II power Grand Valley State, where he played for current CMU defensive coordinator John Jancek and head coach Brian Kelly.
Williams was a two-way standout at wide receiver and linebacker this season for John Glenn High School. He is being recruited by a number of MAC schools, including Eastern Michigan and Toledo.
The Chippewas currently have seven verbal commitments for their 2005 recruiting class and could sign as many as 25 players in February. This is the first weekend that recruits can make official visits to a prospective college.
