Chippewas Insider has learned that linebacker Sam Williams (6-4, 205) of Westland (Mich.) John Glenn High School and athlete Antraz Burton (5-11, 180) of Montrose (Mich.) High School have both verbally committed to Central Michigan after visiting this past weekend.
Williams was a two-way standout at wide receiver and linebacker for John Glenn and was recruited to play linebacker for the Chippewas.
Burton had originally made a verbal commitment to Bowling Green, but that changed this past weekend.
According to Montrose head coach Dennis Reinhart, Bowling Green was concerned about Burton's ACT test score, which Reinhart said Burton plans to take again this Saturday.
"(CMU) is getting a great player," Reinhart said. "The sky's the limit for Antraz. Some colleges like him as a defensive back but I think he's a better wide receiver."
A consensus Class B All-Stater, Burton helped lead Montrose to a 9-2 record this season. He caught 57 passes for 1,129 yards (19.8 yards per catch) and 14 touchdowns, the 15th best yardage total in state history. As a defensive back, Burton made 37 tackles (21 solo) and two interceptions, one of which he returned 90 yards for a TD.
Burton chose CMU over offers from Eastern Michigan, Ball State, Miami, and Bowling Green.
