Michigan Offensive Lineman Commits to CMU

The Central Michigan University football team must replace two offensive linemen who were selected in the 2007 NFL Draft. The Chippewas are off to a great start, recently receiving a verbal commitment from a standout Michigan offensive lineman.

Chippewas Insider has learned that offensive lineman Darren Keyton of Traverse City (Mich.) West High School recently made a verbal commitment to Central Michigan.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Keyton will be a three-year varsity starter for Traverse City West. Last season he helped lead the Titans to a Big North Conference title and a berth in the Michigan High School Athletic Association playoffs.

Keyton was a first-team all-conference selection and was also named to the Traverse City Record-Eagle All-Region Dream Team following last season.

This year he will team with Traverse City Central transfer Rocko Khoury (Michigan) and Dominic Cundari to give Traverse City West one of the finest offensive lines in the state and Midwest.

Keyton joins cornerback Lavarus Williams of Indianapolis Ben Davis High School in CMU's 2008 recruiting class. The Chippewas could take as many as five offensive linemen in this class.
