Chippewas Welcome Key Recruits to Campus
The uncommitted high school players who are visiting CMU this weekend include four from Florida, quarterback Austin Dantin of Tallahassee Leon High School, defesnive back Phillip Thomas of Miami Edison, defensive end Caesar Rodriquez of Miami Columbus and wide receiver Deja Alexander of Jacksonville First Coast.
The other uncommitted player visiting campus this weekend is running back/defensive back Davon Muse of Baltimore Dunbar High School.
A 6-foot-2, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback with 4.5 speed, Dantin could be the perfect fit for CMU's spread offense. His junior year he rushed for more than 600 yards and six touchdowns and passed for more than 2,500 yards and another 13 TDs.
Dantin is rated among the top quarterbacks in the Sunshine State this year. In addition to CMU, he also claims offers from Army, Air Force, Toledo and Western Michigan. Dantin is also being heavily recruited by the University of Michigan, which runs the same offense as CMU.
Thomas, who is 6-foot-0, 180 pounds, could play either cornerback or safety in college. His other offers reportedly include Colorado State, Florida International and WMU.
Rodriquez, who is 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, reports offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Kent State, Western Kentucky, FIU and WMU.
At 5-foot-8, 170-pounds, Muse has been clocked at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash. This season he was a team captain for Dunbar and helped lead the Poets to their third consecutive Maryland Class 1A state title.
Although Muse was often overshadowed by his highly-touted teammate, running back Tavon Austin, Muse still managed to rush for nearly 1,000 yards. On defense, he recorded eight interceptsion, returning two for touchdowns.
In addition to CMU, Muse reports a scholarship offer from MAC West rival Toledo.
Six other recruits who are reportedly making official visits to campus this weekend are already verbally committed to the Chippewas. They are defensive end Jarrett Fleming, tight end Bobby James and two-way lineman Aaron Kaczmarski of Indiana, linebacker Kyle Zelinsky of Illinois, offensive lineman Dominic Mainello of Kentucky, and Michigan wide receiver Cody Wilson.
Recruits cannot sign a binding National Letter of Intent until Feb. 4 when the Chippewas are expected to sign one of the finest recruiting classes in the history of the program.
