Well this is fun. The Central Michigan Chippewas landed a commitment from 2015 wide receiver/safety Jamil Sabbagh yesterday, their 13th in the class of 2015. What's interesting about Sabbagh, aside from his explosive abilities on either side of the ball, is his teammate at Dearborn Fordson High in dearborn Michigan, linebacker Abdlallah Jaffal, is committed to CMU's rival WMU.
Sabbagh, a dynamic playmaker at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, only held an offer from CMU, but that doesn't mean this isn't a big commitment for the Chippewas. He's quick, with a fantastic burst, and has fantastic ball skills on either side of the ball. As a wideout he has the ability to bust open a dicey play for a touchdown thanks to impressive vision and that second gear. On defense, he uses his explosiveness as a roaming safety, lighting up receivers and hawking the ball.
As the 12th in state commit in CMU's class so far, clearly Sabbagh has the potential to be a solid steal for the Chippewas. Dan Enos and his staff have been looking hard at Michigan's underappreciated talent for a while now, and it's starting to pay off by earning the trust of those players in the form of verbal commitments.
