Signing Day: MAC
By Andrea Adelson
Most MAC schools have announced their signing day classes. Be sure to check the ESPN Recruiting page for the complete lists. Here are some highlights:
Toledo: The Rockets are shaping up to have the top class in the MAC, especially after snagging three transfers in Josh Haden (Boston College), Vladimir Emilien (Michigan) and Jordan Haden (Florida). They also signed three-star defensive end Andre Sturdivant, out of Glenville High in Cleveland. Sturdivant chose the Rockets over Penn State.
Western Michigan: The Broncos made inroads in Florida. Of their 19 recruits 12 came from Florida and Michigan. They also were able to shore up two areas of need with five offensive linemen and four safeties.
Central Michigan: The Chippewas signed 27 players -- 12 on offense, 11 on defense and three could play either way. Two members of the class are enrolled for the spring 2011 semester: quarterback Alex Niznak and running back Austin White.
Kent State: With a new head coach in Darrell Hazell, the Golden Flashes signed a group of 18 players, including three quarterbacks -- Evan Shimenksy, Luke Smurthwaite, and Jordan Tarver. Shimensky is already enrolled in school.
