It's been four years since the Central Michigan Chippewas have landed a recruit from the state of New Jersey. Back in the class of 2014 they landed DB Otis Kearney out of Toms River South High School. In the class of 2018 the program has sent out 7 total offers to players from the garden state so far.
The other day George Pearson out of Mater Dei Prep decided that he will call Central Michigan University home for the next 3-5 years. Pearson spoke with us here at NJVarsity about what it is that made him commit to the Chippewas.
"I chose CMU because my family and I felt like it was the best opportunity for me to become a mature adult," Pearson told NJVarsity. "On the field and off the field. Also, the relationship I had with coach Ostrosky was by far the best and is going to grow with years to come down the road and only getting better from here. That's the main thing in my recruitment, I want to feel wanted to my coaching staff especially the head coach and my offensive coordinator.
Pearson went on to talk about his relationship with Coach Ostrosky and how he was as a recruiter too.
"Coach Ostrowsky the OC was my main recruiter at CMU. He's a laid back guy and I just noticed that once he finds his main guy he wants he's going to go after you hard. That one thing I look at in a coach when you are trying to see what school is looking at you the hardest and giving u the best opportunity to play at their program," said Pearson.
While Pearson has never been up to Michigan yet, he does have a trip in mind sometime this fall.
"I have never been up to Central Michigan yet, but I am going to visit soon. I plan on flying up there in September," Pearson said.
