Bass Switches Commitment

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jan 13, 2013

Battle Creek Harper Creek (Mich.) offensive lineman Josh Bass has decided to stay closer to home and switched his commitment this morning.

New Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck picked up a big verbal this morning when former Eastern Michigan commit Josh Bass decided to become a Bronco.

"I wanted to let you know I changed my commitment to Western Michigan," he said.

A 6'5, 285-lb senior who can play several spots on the line, Bass says there were a couple of factors in his decision.

"I loved Coach Fleck and all of the staff and just felt like home for me! The love I got this weekend helped me realize where my home is. I still love EMU but with Western being so close and the coaching staff, it made it hard for me to not pick them."

The academic side of things was also a key to Bass when making his choice.

"I loved the facilities and the campus was beautiful. Most importantly, I picked them because I feel I could get a better education there because football will end one day whether it's in five years or 20 and I want to be able to support my family without the game of football with a good degree."

Bass was an All-State selection as a senior. He is currently rated as a three-star prospect.
