Chippewas Insider has learned that quarterback Derek Rifenbury of Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch High School is taking an official visit to Central Michigan University this weekend.
As a junior, Rifenbury passed for 2,036 yards and 19 touchdowns.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Rifenbury recently competed in NFL Global Junior Championship XI, an annual amateur competition held during Super Bowl week.
Team USA was comprised of the top players from two south Florida counties, Broward and Miami/Dade. The Florida team competed against national teams from Canada, Mexico, Panama, France and Japan.
Rifenbury tossed two touchdowns passes in a 23-13 loss to Team Canada in the championship game.
Rifenbury's favorite target at Monarch High School was tight end Anthony Middleton, who signed earlier this month with rival Western Michigan.
CMU signed 16 players to its 2007 recruiting class on national signing day, Feb. 7, including another Floridia standout, fullback/linebacker Johnnie Daniels of Miami Christopher Columbus High School.
One scouting service rated Daniels the No. 8 prep fullback in the nation.
