In early April, Central Michigan received the commitment of Mendon (MI) High's Logan Slaughter, while the 6-foot-5, 280 pound offensive lineman was on a un-official visit to Mt. Pleasant.
"The commitment occurred at the spring practice I attended. Coach (Dan) Enos and I were talking about how strong the team was looking, and about some of the recruits they were looking at. He said (Enos) that he had five commits, and I told him that I would like to make that six. He got a big smile on his face and seemed pretty hyped when I brought it up to him."
Slaughter, who was selected All-State after he had 34 pancakes on the offensive line, and racked up 46 tackles on defense for a 11-1 Mendon squad that made it deep into the state playoffs last season, told Hustle Belt of how he shut his recruiting process down.
"I picked Central Michigan because they made me feel welcome whenever I am on campus, and they show they really want me. I felt like other teams had put me second and that CMU were just waiting on me. Knowing I am finally done with the process is a huge stress reliever. Having schools always mailing you information and wanting you to come play for them is tough sometimes, because you feel like you are being pulled in too many directions."
The soon to be senior that had interest coming from programs such as Western Michigan, Ball State, Toledo, Wisconsin, Pittsburgh and Michigan State before giving his pledge to the Chippewas said.
"When I think of CMU football, I think of a great program with a strong tradition of producing winning teams and elite linemen. Year after year they always seem to put out the best linemen, and I cannot wait to start working under their staff," Slaughter added.
Not just a standout on the gridiron, but also the classroom, Slaughter plans to major in the psychology field once he reaches Central Michigan.
"I have a lot of interest in working people and helping them through any tough times or with any problems they may have."
