The Eagles landed a commitment from defensive back Kevin McGill this past weekend on his Twitter account.  The 6-foot-1 181 pound defensive back is the Eagles' tenth commit and the second defensive back of their 2016 class.

Hustle Belt caught up with the Eagles' newest commit to find out why he chose Eastern Michigan.

"I went to the campus and I loved it.  I love the family atmosphere that coach Creighton has showed, and I have a great relationship with my recruiter and position coach."

The incoming-senior at Westlake High School in Waldorf, Maryland also eluded to some of the feats he hopes to accomplish as an Eagle.  "I just want to get the program on the right track and change the program into something special, and turn heads!" McGill told Hustle Belt.

The Eagles could really use some production from McGill.  Last season the Eagles ranked eleventh in the MAC in pass defense by allowing 275 yards per game, and dead last in the MAC by allowing nearly 500 yards per game to opposing offenses.
