Shaq Vann, a three-star recruit (per 247sports.com) from South Bend, Ind. was likely going to end up in the MAC and finally made his decision to join the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

Receiving offers from Central Michigan, Miami and Toledo, he also showed interest in Ball State, but they did not offer Vann a scholarship. EMU was actually the second school to offer him a scholarship back in early May of last year when Ron English was still around.

Reported by Angelo Di Carlo WNDU news in Indiana, Vann spoke very highly of his new coach, Chris Creighton.

"Eastern was just a different atmosphere," Vann said Tuesday compared to other places he's visited. "The coaches care about you and so much on a different level. It was just an experience you can't pass up. They have a new coach who has been there for five weeks and making a great impact."

Played both running back and linebacker for South Bend Adams High School, he played a big role to help his high school "return to one of the area's best over the last few years." (Di Carlo).

National Signing Day is just a week away and though the incoming class isn't very populated, it's starting to look like a promising bunch.
