2014 Eastern Michigan Recruiting: OT Jeremy Hickey Fourth Offensive Lineman to Join EMU

Chris Creighton made it a point to recruit hard on the offensive lineman. They now make up half of the upcoming recruiting class.

We've already reported that Ka'John Armstrong would be joining Eastern Michigan, but now we've caught wind that there is another offensive lineman that has also decided to join the Eagles over the weekend.

Jeremy Hickey, an unranked recruit from Bloomfield Hills, Mich. (per 247sports.com) will join EMU this upcoming season. Hickey and Armstrong visited EMU on January 17 and both committed two days later. But it's really cold and boring in Michigan right now. I wonder what Creighton did to liven up their trip to Ypsilanti.

Hickey played football at Brother Rice High School and was receiving offers from Austin Peay, Butler, Grand Valley State (D-II), Robert Morris (FCS), Southern Illinois (FCS) and Indiana State (FCS). Eastern Michigan was the only school that Hickey officially visited.

Along with Armstrong and Hickey, there are two other offensive lineman expected to join EMU in the fall. Dakota Tallman from Elyria, Ohio and Christopher Bukoski from Dewitt, Mich. make up the four lineman in EMU's eight-person recruiting class.

The four are all 6'5", with Armstrong and Bukoski are listed at 270 lbs. while Hickey and Tallman are listed at 290 lbs.
