Detroit East English Village Prep (Mich.) junior athlete Anton Curtis is officially off the recruiting board because on Friday afternoon, Curtis announced his decision to commit to Western Michigan.
Curtis choose Western Michigan over a handful of Midwestern football programs like Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Southern Illinois, Bowling Green, Akron and Toledo, who he also holds offers from.
In his last two seasons with the East English Village Bulldogs, Curtis has alternated from playing quarterback and moving around between wide receiver and defensive-back. While no one can deny that he has a nice arm, Curtis has always maintained that he sees himself playing defensive back or wide receiver at the next level. Apparently, Western Michigan feels the same way because according to BroncosBlitz.com, Western Michigan plans to play him at wide receiver.
I personally think the Broncos are gaining a good football player in Curtis. He has proved be very versatile by playing multiple positions on the field like quarterback, wide receiver, safety and defensive-back. He is a true student of the game who believes in constantly increasing his football I.Q. He is a very smooth athlete especially in the open field and he definitely has the quickness and agility to change directions and make defenders miss.
I don’t know about you but I think the Broncos may have a steal on their hands with this commitment.
One thing’s for sure, Broncos are building up a nice recruiting class for 2015. Before the recent commitment from Curtis, Illinois defensive tackle Daniel Jackson also decided to take his talents to the Broncos. According to BroncoBlitz.com, Western Michigan is expected to bring in a class size around 22-25 kids, at the rate they are going, I think it’s safe to say they will accomplish their goal.
