Running back Davon Muse of Baltimore Dunbar High School verbally committed to Central Michigan University Thursday following an official visit to campus last weekend.
A 5-foot-8, 170-pounder with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, Muse was recruited to play running back or slot receiver for the Chippewas.
"They're recruiting me to the offensive side of the football, with the option of playing the slot," Muse told DigitalSports. "It will give me more of an opportunity to demonstrate some of the things that I know that I can do."
At CMU, Muse will join three other Maryland prep players in the Chippewas' 2009 recruiting class, running back Malek Redd and defensive back Leron Eaddy of River Hill High School and cornerback Darrick Scott of Frederick (Md.) Thomas Johnson. Scott is already enrolled at CMU.
Muse was instrumental in Dunbar's drive for their third straight Class 1A state title this fall, and their sixth overall state championship. He was the Poets' second-leading rusher with more than 1,100 yards, 13 touchdowns and a team-high 12 two-point conversions. Muse also ranked second among Poets' players with eight interceptions.
Muse also considered an offer from Mid-American Conference West rival Toledo. He joins two other running backs in CMU's 2009 class, the aforementioned Redd and Tim Phillips of Louisville (Ky.) Trinity High School. All three backs led their teams to state titles this season.
