On Wednesday, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School three-star wide receiver Daniel Braverman committed to Western Michigan.
"It was just a good opportunity that I didn't want to pass up," Braverman said. "I had a couple other schools after me pretty hard, but this was the best place for me to be. I didn't want to wait too long, because I didn't want the opportunity to go away."
The attention shown by the staff at Western Michigan put Braverman's mind at ease with the decision he reached today.
"I talk to numerous coaches on the staff, about three coaches, while for the other schools I talk to only one or two," Braverman said. "I've been talking with the head coach (Bill Cubit), the receivers coach (Josh Gattis), and the quarterbacks coach (Ryan Cubit). I talk with them every week. The coaches have just been telling me about how they intend to use me in the offense. He just made me feel good about going up there."
For Braverman, his decision to head to Western Michigan was a simple one because of their pass-happy offense.
"The most important thing to me is the offense," Braverman said. "They are throwing the ball. They threw for 470 yards last week. They threw for 400 yards on Connecticut, which is a Big East team. I just feel they are a team on the rise and I can be a part of that. I feel I can get some exposure while I am up there. They have beaten some good teams and they hang close with others. They play good competition up there too."
Despite offers from Duke, Eastern Michigan, Miami-Ohio, South Florida, Toledo, Tulane, Utah State, and Wake Forest, Braverman says that he is a Bronco and nothing will change his mind.
"I am done," Braverman said. "I am not going to visit other schools."
Braverman has yet to visit Western Michigan. He will be taking an official visit after the season.
