Chippewas Add Two More Verbal Commitments

The Central Michigan University football program had a productive visit weekend. Two of the eleven recruits visiting campus made verbal commitments to the Chippewas before returning home.

Chippewas Insider has learned that two Florida standouts verbally committed to Central Michigan during their official visits to campus this past weekend.

The two players are linebacker/safety Kirkston Edwards (6-3, 190) of Palm Beach Gardens High School and cornerback Tommy Mama (5-9, 175) of Miami Monsignor Pace High School.

Edwards was recently named to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel All-Palm Beach County 1st team. He helped lead Palm Beach Gardens to the Florida Class 6A State Championship this season. He reportedly chose CMU over offers from South Florida and Florida Atlantic.

Mama is a product of the same school as former Chippewa players Derrick Vickers, Jovan Clarke and Jerry Seymour. He is rated among the top cornerbacks in south Florida this season.

CMU now has 16 verbal commitments in its 2006 recruiting class. The Chippewas are expected to sign a full class of 25 players this year.
