Well, that escalated quickly. Offensive lineman Kyle Sassack committed to Western Michigan on Friday afternoon making him the 11th commitment for coach Fleck's 2017 recruiting class. This may be their biggest commitment (literally) in this recruiting cycle so far.
Sassack currently attends Notre Dame Prep located in Pontiac, Michigan. He ultimately chose the Broncos over reported offers from Ball State, Central Michigan, Illinois State, and Miami.
Shortly after his commitment, Sassack talked to Hustle Belt about why he chose Western Michigan.
"I really loved everything about WMU. Everything from the facilities and coaches to the slogans. It all fit into my personality and the type of person I want to be."
Sassack also gave us some insight as to how his commitment went down.
"I was sitting in Coach Fleck's office when I told him first. When I told him, he wanted to make sure my commitment was 100% true to the program and told me everything that my decision entailed and then we went on from there!"
He stands at 6-foot-7 270 pounds, an absolute monster in the trenches who should help protect whoever is under center during his time at Kalamazoo. He is also the second offensive lineman to join the 2017 class along with Dylan Deatherage.
