New Broncos coach Tim Lester and his staff got a big pickup today flipping 2-star Defensive End Ali Fayad from Eastern Michigan. Fayad had offers from Eastern Michigan where he was originally committed to, and also Western Michigan, where he is now committed.

"Western offers more opportunities for me moving forward. Eastern didn’t want me to visit Kalamazoo, but I did and fell in love with it." Fayad said.

The 6’2 230 pounder out of Dearborn High School in Michigan had a successful senior campaign. Dearborn High went 9-2, but got defeated in the second round of the state playoffs. Fayad had 30 tackles for loss, 71 total tackles, 4 forced fumbles, and led the state with 21 sacks.

Fayad is ranked 73rd in the state of Michigan and ranked the 117 WDE. Fayad is the 16th commitment in the 2017 Broncos class. The Broncos have the 4th ranked class in the MAC and 88th in the country.
