Chipping away at the in-state recruiting game, Central Michigan was on the prowl in the Mitten last month.

The Chippewas came away with an early-summer recruiting haul of in-state prospects, gaining commitments from a five-pack of value grabs in the last week of June:

Koen Entringer (Ann Arbor Huron 6-2, 190 WR) — Hands, wheels and work ethic.

Kade Kostus (Rockford 6-3, 255 LB/DE) — Freakish athlete with motor and instinct.

DeCorion “DC” Temple (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-6, 215 TE) — The highest upside at his position in Metro Detroit, Dion Sims 2:0.

Olando Trader (Jackson 6-0, 175) — Sticky cover corner who passes the eye test with flying colors.

Ambrose Wilson (East Lansing 6-0, 180 QB/S) — Shifty, smart and smooth on both sides of the ball.


Other recent commitments:

Jameel Gardner (Detroit Cass Tech 6-1, 180 WR) — Committed to Bowling Green, Gardner is a master of the go-route, but can also beat defenders underneath going across the middle or flaring out on a bubble screen.

Giuseppe Gottfried (Saline 6-4, 295 OL) — Committed to Air Force, Gottfried is all technique and grit at the point of attack.

August Johanningsmeier (Howell 6-4, 225 RB) — Committed to Western Michigan, this H-Town Highlander is a mega sleeper with mega talent.

James Livingston (Dexter 6-7, 285 OL) — Committed to Kansas, Livingston plays like a live wire on the line, he brings the juice to open up the pass and run game and plays with a relentless spirit.

Garrett Masterson (Lapeer 6-6, 300 OL) — Committed to Kent State, Masterson is a Power-5 caliber road grader.

Tommy McIntosh (DeWitt 6-4, 215 WR) — Committed to Wisconsin, McIntosh did a “Drake” and went from 0-to-100 REAL QUICK in his recruiting in the past eight months, he’s a big-play receiver combined with the reliability of a possession receiver.

Masai Reddick (Detroit Cass Tech 6-5, 330 OL) — Committed to Tennessee,  Reddick probably has the highest ceiling in the state’s Class of ’22 in the trenches.
