It seems that the Western Michigan Broncos are improving at a rapid pace lately. The Broncos currently hold a 2-1 record, which is already more wins than they had all of last year. The Broncos don't seem to be slowing down either, this time making a big splash on the recruiting trail.
About two weeks ago coach Fleck landed a commitment from WR/DB Kadeem Goulbourne from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Goulbourne is extremely athletic and possesses ideal height for his position. At 6-foot-4, Goulbourne will have no problem winning jump balls no matter which side of the ball he winds up playing on. As of now, it looks like he's more likely to line up at wide receiver for the Broncos.
Goulbourne is another high-profile recruit that will join the Broncos program that was in dire need of an influx of talent when coach Fleck took over the program. Kadeem is rated a 3-star recruit by 247Sports and 2-stars by Rivals.com. Goulbourne also has the offers to back up his rankings, as he had a long list of offers coming out of high school. Some of these reported offers include Akron, Boston College, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, N.C. State, Northern Illinois, Ole Miss, Rutgers, Syracuse, SMU, Temple, Tennessee, and Western Kentucky.
Originially, Goulbourne was headed to SMU to play for June Jones as a greyshirt. However now that June Jones has resigned as SMU's head coach, Goulbourne wound up with the Broncos. Goulbourne plans to enroll at Western Michigan in Januray and his scholarship will count towards the 2015 recruiting class.
Goulbourne is extremely talented and a guy who could compete for immediate playing time for the Broncos. Goulbourne will be a nightmare for opposing cornerbacks and is a guy Bronco's fans should keep an eye on during spring practices.
