Hueter Commits to CMU

The Central Michigan University football program received some great news recently in the form of a verbal commitment from one of the top offensive linemen in the state of Michigan's 2008 class.

Chippewas Insider has learned that offensive tackle Zach Hueter of North Branch (Mich.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan Thursday after an official visit to campus last weekend (Dec. 7-9).

A consensus Michigan 1st team All-State selection, the 6-foot-8, 290-pound Hueter was being heavily recruited by the Chippewas, which was the first school to offer him a scholarship last May. He also reported offers from Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan, and was receiving steady recruiting interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana, Purdue and Northwestern.

In an interview earlier this fall with Chippewas Insider, Hueter said he really liked the coaches at CMU and the fact his best friend, Chippewa freshman tight end Brandin Friske, also of North Branch, is already at CMU.

"I feel very comfortable and relaxed with the (CMU) coaches," Hueter said. "My biggest attribute as an offensive lineman is I'm quick and I play with a lot of heart and intensity."

Hueter joins offensive linemen Darren Keyton of Traverse City (Mich.) West High School and Grant Cartwright of Chesterton (Ind.) High School in the Chippewas 2008 recruiting class.
