4-8, 7-6, 6-6, 5-7, and 9-4 are the records of the five past seasons for the Western Michigan Broncos. The past five years they have had their ups and downs, but Bronco fans have something to be excited about now. Just recently rivals.com released their 2014 Recruiting Rankings and Western Michigan came in at #27. How they are pulling this off in Kalamazoo, Michigan is anyones guess, but whatever it is the fans have to be loving it. The class entails twenty commitments already, including a talented four star quarterback.
Pro Style Quarterback, Chance Stewart, chose Western Michigan over Big Ten schools Illinois and Wisconsin. Being that his hometown, Sturgis, Michigan, is about one hour away from Kalamazoo could only help for him to commit. WMU does not have a quarterback on the roster with the physical tools that Stewart has. No quarterback at WMU is taller than 6’3, yet Stewart is already 6’6, and still growing. WMU has to make sure they keep this kid committed.
Lets not forget about the rest of the 19 commitments such as Jamauri Bogan. The Broncos fearlessly went into New Jersey and won a huge recruiting battle. New Jersey running back Jamauri Bogan chose the Broncos over programs like Georgia Tech, UMASS, and Temple.
The recruiting class so far includes one 4 star, seven 3 stars, nine 2 stars, and three other players not rated yet but talented. This recruiting class is by far the best in the MAC and almost in the top 25 for the nation. Head coach P.J. Fleck has great things going on in the recruiting side but has to make it translate on the field. With this kind of talent, the days of not making bowl games should be over.
