The Eagles have had a busy week thus far.  Eastern Michigan landed a pledge from defensive end Justice Williams on July 10, per sources, while athlete Tre'Von Wade posted his announcement on his Twitter page on Wednesday.  Williams and Wade have become the Eagles' seventh and eighth recruits for the Eagles' 2016 recruiting class.

Justice Williams was able to meet up with Hustle Belt and explain why he chose to become an Eagle.

"One thing I like about EMU is that it's close (to home).  I'm from Detroit and it's only a 20 minute drive from home.  My family will be able to come to games.  Also, just like me, EMU is an unfinished product.  I could be a part of a good group that could turn the program around... They have good people in their program who are ready to make a change and I feel that the sky is the limit for them."

Williams is entering his senior season at Belleview High School.  According to 247Sports, Williams also had an offer from Toledo.  The 6-foot-4 205 pound prospect is Eastern Michigan's first defensive line commit for the 2016 class.

Tre'Von Wade is rated as a two-star prospect, and also had an offer from Toledo, according to 247Sports.  Wade has played cornerback and running back at Central Catholic High School in Toledo, Ohio and is entering his senior season.  The 5-foot-10 170 pound speedster will be a nightmare for opponents.
