Chippewas Insider has learned that small forward Jacolby Hardiman of the University of Arkansas Fort Smith has verbally committed to Central Michigan University.
A 6-foot-4, 205-pounder, Hardiman averaged nine points, five rebounds and 2.3 assists this season to help lead UA Fort Smith to a 28-4 record and No. 12 national junior college ranking.
Hardiman, who took an official visit to CMU this past weekend, chose the Chippewas over reported offers from Northern Iowa, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Loyola (Ill.), and Eastern Illinois.
A sophomore with two years of college eligibility remaining, Hardiman prepped at Milwaukee (Wisc.) Bradley Tech High School. He joins Michigan high school players Zach Saylor (Lansing Waverly), Lawrence Bridges (Detroit Henry Ford) and Adrian Hunter (Grand Blanc) in CMU's 2008 recruiting class.
The Chippewas still have one scholarship available for their '08 recruiting class and could be waiting to hear from shooting guard Antonio Weary of Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College. Weary also visited CMU this past weekend.
