P.J. Fleck and the WMU coaching staff had a pretty elite weekend. The Western Michigan football squad didn't just pick up their fourth win of the season on Saturday against Miami, they also landed their 25th verbal commitment of the 2016 recruiting cycle.
Ken Aguirre, a 6'2, 290-pound defensive lineman from Joliet Catholic in Joliet, Illinois is the latest prospect to accept a scholarship from Fleck, and crew. While Aguirre flew under-the-radar a bit, he reportedly held an offer from not just Western Michigan, but also schools such as Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Miami, Florida Atlantic, and Wyoming to name a few.
Western Michigan is trying to build a winning attitude around the program. That is something Aguirre should definitely help with. Playing for one of the top teams in Illinois, the newest Bronco is use to suiting up for a contender. After finishing 8-3 last season Ken and his Hilltopper teammates are currently sitting 8-1 on the year and recently won a share of the East Suburban Catholic Conference title.
