Central Michigan had been very successful recruiting the Detroit suburbs under former head coach Butch Jones. New head coach Dan Enos appears to be continuing that trend. This weekend he added the commitment of one of the state's best linebackers.
Birmingham (Mich.) Brother Rice's Tim Hamilton had accumulated scholarship offers from the likes of Central Michigan, Illinois State, Miami (Ohio) and Western Michigan, but has given his verbal commitment to the Chippewas.
"[I] committed to Central Michigan yesterday," Hamilton reported.
The 6-2, 247-pound Hamilton racked up an outstanding 155 tackles from his middle linebacker position as a junior. He follows in a long tradition of Division 1 middle linebackers out of Brother Rice, a list that includes current Penn State Nittany Lion Chris Colasanti and former Michigan Wolverine Steve Morrison.
Hamilton is rated three stars and ranked as the No. 21 prospect in the state of Michigan.
