Florida Cornerback Commits to CMU

He was one of the fastest high school players in Florida this season and now this standout cornerback has decided to play his college football for the Central Michigan Chippewas.

Chippewas Insider has learned that cornerback Yvener Lisca of Hialeah (Fla.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan this week after taking an official visit to campus last weekend (Dec. 7-9).

At 5-foot-9, 170-pounds, Lisca has been clocked at under 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He will join his high school teammate, running back Paris Cotton, in the Chippewas 2008 recruiting class.

Lisca emerged at the Miami Scout.com combine last March as one of the top cornerbacks in south Florida. He becomes the fourth Florida high school player in the Chippewas 2008 recruiting class, joining defensive end Jamal Collins of Miami Northwestern, defensive tackle John Williams of Miami Central and Cotton.

Lisca becomes the 15th overall verbal commitment in CMU's '08 class. Recruits cannot sign binding National Letters of Intent until Wednesday Feb. 6, 2008, which is national signing day.
