Cody Pettit has visited several schools since the winter and as he returns from a family vacation to Utah he's found a school at the top of his list.
"I've visited Central Michigan two times now and really like everything I've seen there. The coaches are great and the program has really taken the steps to continue to be one of the top in the MAC. Right now I'd say they are my leader."
While not ready give his verbal commitment, Pettit knows the day is coming where he'll end his recruiting.
"I've been enjoying this family vacation out west and really have placed recruiting on the back burner. We'll be getting back home on Friday or Saturday and at some point prior to my high school season starting I'd like to make my commitment."
Pettit is a 6-foot-3, 235-pound high school defensive end that projects with his hand down as a tackle in college. He shows explosive moves off the line and has the physical tools a program can built on.
Pettit enjoys offers from Akron, Kent State and Ohio along with Central Michigan. But the Chippewas staff has done a great job of showing Pettit he's one of their top recruits. A betting man would put good money on Pettit giving head coach Butch Jones a commitment by the first part of August at the latest.
