Pensacola (Fla.) wide receiver La'Derick Black made his college decision over the weekend.
"I committed to Western Michigan yesterday," Black said.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound wideout talked about why he opted for Western Michigan.
"They have been recruiting me real hard," Black said. "They are also graduating four seniors at that position this year coming up so I feel like I have a real opportunity there to start when I get there. They also told me they will let me play baseball."
The two-star athlete was a popular target for a number of coaches on the staff.
"I've been dealing with Coach (Josh) Gattis and Coach Lou Esposito a lot," Black said. "I've also been talking to the head coach (Bill Cubit."
The Panhandle prospect talked a bit about what he has heard from his future college staff.
"They told me a lot about their offense and how much they throw the ball," Black said. "They just really told me how much they would love to have me up there."
His decision came prior to the Sunshine State prospect having an opportunity to travel to the campus.
"I am supposed to visit sometime next month," Black said.
The visit to Western Michigan will not be his only trip to a college campus in 2011 if he has his way.
"I still plan to visit Utah State, Troy - I've already visited Troy before - also UAB, Arkansas, and all of those schools that are interested in me," Black said.
Black chose the Broncos over an offer from Utah State.
