Michigan Standout Commits to CMU

The Central Michigan University football program received some more good news yesterday in the form of its seventh verbal commitment for the 2006 recruiting class.

Chippewas Insider has learned that tight end/defensive end Anthony Quinn (6-5, 225) of East Kentwood (Mich.) High School made a verbal commitment yesterday to Central Michigan University.

A versatile player with good size and speed, Quinn could play on either side of the ball for the Chippewas. This season he caught 26 passes for 260 yards (10-yard average) and four touchdowns for the Falcons. As a defensive end, he recorded 76 tackles and five sacks.

He was coached at East Kentwood this season by former Charlotte (Mich.) High School head coach Eddie Ostipow, who implemented the spread offense for the Falcons. Ostipow coached CMU freshman tight end Allen Ollenburger at Charlotte last season.

Quinn also had recruiting interest from Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Bowling Green, Toledo and Michigan, among others.

He becomes the seventh overall verbal commitment in CMU's 2006 recruiting class and the fifth Michigan prep player.
