Chippewas Insider has learned that running back Bryan Schroeder of Corydon (Ind.) North Harrison High School verbally committed to Central Michigan following a visit to campus this past weekend.
A three-year varsity starter for North Harrison, Schroeder, a 5-foot-11, 220-pounder, is on pace to become the state of Indiana's all-time leading rusher.
He carried the ball 185 times for 2,043 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior and has compiled 5,601 career rushing yards entering his senior season. He needs to gain 1,960 yards this year to surpass Indiana's career rushing record set by Otis Shannon of Indianapolis Cathedral from 1997-2000.
Schroeder becomes the second Indiana prep player and the ninth overall verbal commitment in the Chippewas 2008 recruiting class. He picked CMU over offers and recruiting interest from several Mid-American and Big Ten Conference schools, including Ball State, Indiana, Purdue and Iowa.
