Before three-star dual-threat quarterback/athlete prospect Kamal Martin made his decision to commit to the Eastern Michigan Eagles, Isaac Stiebeling (pronounced: stee-buh-ling) tweeted out his decision on Tuesday, June 23.
Stiebeling also held offers from Ball State and Ohio. He visited Ball State once and planned on making his first visit to Athens later this week, "but after visiting Eastern Michigan again," Stiebeling told Hustle Belt, "I felt like I needed to make my decision, and I feel like it was a great decision." His schedule interferes with a lot of the EMU camp dates, so the coaches were able to see him throw in person at the Ohio State camp last week.
"The relationships I've started to build right off the bat with the coaches, it just seemed like the right fit for me. I did my research and everything, I've talked with the coaches and my gut is saying 'Eastern all the way.'"
"I definitely think I hit a home run: there was no red flags at all. I actually made a list of everything I was looking for in a college and that school filled out every spot."
Eagles fans should definitely look for this prospect to hit the field very early in his college career. Academics was definitely on that list, but he also said amongst things on the list he was looking for was a team that had a solid, specific plan for him and a team where he could potentially start by his sophomore year.
"I'm continuing to work every day at perfecting my craft," Stiebeling said. "I want to be the best quarterback I can be. I feel like (my senior season) will help me on the process to be the best quarterback I can be, and also my years in college to be the best quarterback I can be."
While Steibeling's listed as a pro-style quarterback on 247Sports, Stiebeling told Hustle Belt that he's actually a dual-threat quarterback and has a 40-time of 4.5 seconds. But you be the judge and check out his highlights courtesy of Hudl.
