Broncos Further Strengthen 2014 OL Class

Alma (Mich.) junior Curtis Doyle makes the decision to stay in-state and play for P.J. Fleck and the Western Michigan Broncos.

Alma High School's Curtis Doyle, a 6'5, 270-pound offensive lineman, committed to Western Michigan on Thursday over an offer from fellow in-state MAC program Central Michigan. He says familiarity and comfort were key parts of his decision.

"I have been to campus about six times to meet with Coach Fleck and the staff, and I have built a great relationship with them."

Doyle joins Southfield's Chukwuma Okorafor and Zeeland West's Jordan Van Dort, two other in-state offensive linemen as the Broncos continuing to fortify that unit.

"Coach Fleck is doing great things for WMU and to be his first real recruiting class, there is nothing I want more than to be a part of a "new generation" of Bronco Football," Doyle said.

While there were other programs telling Doyle he could earn an offer at camp, he ultimately felt he had an offer from the right school already.

"The staff truly cares about their players," he explained, "and I know I will get treated well there."

The Broncos have eight total commitments in their 2014 class, five from within state lines.
