The future is definitely looking bright for the Western Michigan football squad. After recently signing the top 2015 recruiting class in the Mid-American Conference earlier this month, P.J. Fleck, and the Western Michigan coaching staff are already off to a fast start to their 2016 class.
Last night Fleck, and WMU picked up their second commitment from a soon-to-be-senior prospect. Three-star recruit Stefan Claiborne of Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Michigan is now the second standout to give the Broncos a verbal pledge, joining Illinois quarterback Matt Little.
A two-way standout on the high school level, the 6'2 180 pound Claiborne is talented enough to play wide receiver, but will suit up at safety for Western Michigan. Before his commitment to WMU, he was considering scholarship offers from the likes of Iowa, Cincinnati, Central Michigan, Miami, and Toledo, while also gaining interest from many other programs.
According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Claiborne is currently the 34th safety, and 438th overall prospect in the class of 2016.
