Central Michigan isn't going to enjoy the lofting recruiting rankings that some Big Ten schools will when February rolls around.
Don't tell their coaches or fans to temper their excitement, though.
That's because the Chippewas have picked up one of their biggest commitments in recent memory in Jordan Fields.
Fields, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound safety from Grand Blanc, Michigan, had offers from Kentucky, Kansas and Western Michigan, but opted for CMU, the school his father attended.
"The size (of the school) isn't so big and it's number one in the state and number five in the country for my major," Fields explained. "The coaching staff is phenomenal and I want to be a part of a rebuilding stage.
"They have one of the strongest non-conference schedules by playing Michigan State, South Carolina, Alabama and Kentucky," he continued. "They gave great sells on playing as a freshman."
Fields has repeatedly said CMU's strong non-conference schedule is something the program had working for it.
Fields is a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com.
