Michigan Athlete Commits to the Chippewas

The Central Michigan University football program received some more great news recently in the form of a verbal commitment from a versatile Michigan athlete.

Chippewas Insider has learned that athlete Jason Johnson of Durand (Mich.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan University this past week.

A 6-foot-1, 185-pounder, Johnson's been clocked at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He also reported scholarship offers from Western Michigan and Bowling Green, and recruiting interest from Michigan State, Toledo and Eastern Michigan.

Johnson is coached at Durand by former CMU player Bryan Carpenter. A quarterback and defensive back for the Railroaders, Johnson could project at a number of positions for the Chippewas.

Johnson becomes the fourth known verbal commitment in CMU's 2009 recruiting class, joining wide receiver Cody Wilson, running back Malek Redd and offensive lineman Aaron Kaczmarski.
