Oakley talks Central Michigan commitment
Central Michigan gained a quarterback pledge for the 2014 class when Zach Oakley of Mishawaka (Ind.) Penn committed to the Chippewas on Thursday. "I talked with my dad about and then I talked with my head coach, and I was ready to commit," Oakley said. "I called [head coach] (Dan) Enos and he was really excited. He gave me some more background on the other commits in the class. I can't wait to get back up there for camp." Oakley was offered by Central Michigan two weeks ago, and though it was his only current offer, he was receiving a lot of interest from Purdue and Northern Illinois. "I did a lot of research on my own, and they are an up and coming school," Oakley said. "They just built a brand new business facility. Central Michigan has a lot of young wide receivers, and I'm excited to be their quarterback." ""Since I play wide receiver and safety too in high school, I know how to make plays with my legs," Oakley said. "I'm a natural leader, and as long as I get the opportunity, I can make something out of it."
