One Homecoming, Two Commitments

A lot of positives came out of Grand Valley's homecoming weekend. The Lakers defeated Hillsdale on the field and off the field, the team received its first verbal commitment from a high school recruit as well as one from an FBS transfer.

Sources have told GVReport that the Lakers received two commitments over this weekend.

The first high school verbal of the year is Orland Park Sandburg (IL) wide receiver Tony Stramaglia. The 6'2, 185-lb Stramaglia had interest from other schools such as Purdue, Western Michigan and Ball State, but GVSU was his only offer to this point.

His father Don played wide receiver for Grand Valley.

The other good news was a verbal commitment by former Michigan State lineman Ryan Wheat. Wheat, a product of Flint Carman-Ainsworth, received his release from Michigan State this past week.

At 6'5, 300-lbs, Wheat could play on either side of the ball, but was playing defensive line for the Spartans. A redshirt freshman this season, Wheat should have three years of eligibility left.

We will have interviews with both Stramglia and Wheat up in the near future.
