Central Michigan has been busy this week, racking up their 13th and 14th commitments for their class of 2015 since Sunday. Pontiac, Michigan cornerback prospect became the Chippewas 14th overall commitment, and 13th in-state, Tuesday evening.
Pontiac (Mich.) 2015 ATH Ja'Mar Antwine just committed to #CentralMichigan his dad tells me. #FireUpChips— Branden Hunter (@JustCallmeBHunt) June 18, 2014
The 5-foot-11, 180 pound cornerback is currently unranked by any of the major scouting services, but that shouldn't put any Chips fans off. Dan Enos has been looking far and wide throughout the state of Michigan for undervalued talent, and appears to have succeeded again. Despite CMU being Antwine's only offer, he was receiving interest from several schools including Bowling green, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon, per Rivals.
Like the 13th commitment, Jamil Sabbagh, Antwine is explosive. he runs a 40 in the 4.5-4.6 range, and is a versatile athlete. He's played everywhere from quarterback to wide receiver, to linebacker at Pontiac High, but he appears to have been recruited as a defensive back (specifically a corner, as his size would dictate). He has excellent ball skills, and should be turnover-machine in the CMU defense.
He's also a skilled returner, who could make an immediate impact for the Chippewas on special teams. He has an excellent vision of the field, and makes quick reads before changing directions.
