Western Michigan gets on the board for '13

Offensive lineman Ki-Jana Evans (Chicago/Harian) has become the first Class of 2013 commitment for Western Michigan, multiple sources report.

He selected the Broncos over scholarship offers from Western Kentucky and Eastern Michigan. Minnesota, Utah, West Virginia, Illinois and Northern Illinois also recruited the 6-foot-3, 312-pound prospect.

Evans registered an electronically-timed 5.85 40-yard dash, 5.55 20-yard shuttle, 20.4-inch vertical and 57.33 SPARQ at the Chicago Nike Combine in April.
