Eaddy Considering MAC Offers

Safety Leron Eaddy of Clarksville (Md.) River Hill High School has returned home after visiting Central Michigan University along with his teammate Malek Redd, who verbally committed to the Chippewas. Eaddy talked with Chippewas Insider about the prospect of joining his teammate at CMU.

Strong safety Leron Eaddy loves to hit people. Last season he tallied 113 tackles, including 13 tackles for a loss, in helping to lead River Hill High School to a 14-0 record and the Maryland Division II State Championship.

"Yes, I'm aggressive and I like to hit," said the 5-foot-10, 185-pound defensive back who's been clocked at 4.55 in the 40-yard dash.

Wednesday, Eaddy was visiitng Central Michigan University along with his teammate, running back Malek Redd, who verbally committed to the Chippewas before leaviing campus. Eaddy attended a one-day camp at CMU where he demonstrated his abilitiy to play at the next level under the watchful eye of CMU defensive coordinator Tim Banks.

"Coach Banks told me he liked my footwork and that I'm aggressive and like to hit people," Eaddy said. "He told me CMU plays a pro style defense with a lot of blitzing and that appeals to me."

Eaddy currently holds scholarship offers from the Chippewas and Mid-American Conference rival Bowling Green. Eaddy said BGSU has offered him immediate playing time, but CMU has much to offer too, including the opportunity to play with his buddy Malek Redd.

"Malek and I have been friends for about six years now so it would be great to play together in college," Eaddy said. "CMU is very nice. I like how everything is new and convenient. The dorms are close to the classrooms and the athletic complex.

"The CMU coaches are great and down to earth too," Eaddy added. "I definitely want to make a decision before the season starts."

Eaddy said he plans to visit Wake Forest July 13, where another high school teammate, running back Michael Companaro, is verbally committed.

Other schools Eaddy feels are close to offering include Eastern Michigan and James Madison. The Chippewas though, appear to be the team to beat for Eaddy.

"I had a great expericence at CMU, I can definitely see myself playing there the next four or five years," Eaddy concluded. "I need to talk it over with my family. I plan to visit CMU again with Malek on July 25."
