Shortly after the de-commitment of 3-star DB Stefan Claiborne, 2-star Jordan Asbury has decided to commit to the Broncos according to a source close to the WMU program.
Asbury chose the Broncos over offers from Air Force, Army, Ball State, Bowling Green, EMU, and Northwestern. The 6-foot-4 268 pound offensive guard will play his college football close to home as he currently attends De La Salle located in Warren, Michigan.
247Sports and Rivals.com both rated Asbury as a 2-star recruit.
Despite losing a handful of recruits already, there is plenty of reason for optimism as the Broncos have a top recruiting class once again. Recruiting coordinator Andy Howell sent out a tweet this afternoon expressing his excitement about the future of WMU.
Elite day!! Another one in the boat!! #ThoseWhoStayWillBeChamps— Andy Howell (@Andy_WMU) June 2, 2015
The fact that P.J. Fleck and his staff are recruiting players with B1G offers shows the kind of players they are looking to recruit to WMU. The Broncos are willing to compete against B1G caliber recruits and, in cases like Asbury, winning.
With the recent de-commitment of OL Tom Kowalkoski, who committed to Boston College, Asbury fills a need on the offensive line. He also joins Spencer Williams and Mike Caliendo to form a talented group of offensive lineman in this 2016 recruiting class.
