Chippewas Insider has learned that linebacker Armond Staten of Inkster (Mich.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan Sunday night following a visit to campus.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Staten had reportedly been on campus Sunday with a handful of other priority CMU recruits for Chippewa Day.
Staten will be a three-year varsity starter this season for Inkster. In two seasons he's compiled 34 sacks and forced three fumbles from his defensive end position. Last year he helped lead Inkster to a 12-2 record and a trip to the Michigan Division 6 State Championship game.
Staten becomes the fifth Michigan prep player and the eighth overall verbal commitment in the Chippewas 2008 recruiting class.
