Matich Excited About Bronco Future

Clarkston (Mich.) defensive tackle Nick Matich talks about his commitment to Western Michigan and why he chose the Broncos over several other options.

A battle was waged for Nick Matich, as the Clarkston High defensive tackle held offers from virtually the entire Mid-American Conference and the rival schools recruited him hard, but in the end, Western Michigan became his clear choice.

"Western's coaching staff blew my mind when I first met them," he said. "There was so much energy and so many positive things that I could see coming from it. It was a great home for me where I could hopefully play all four years and hopefully make it to the next level."

Matich is part of a recruiting class that already has 19 commitments and he says that building process also played a role in his decision.

"With our recruiting class being ranked [highly] in the nation, I believe it just shows they are turning that program around fast and it's good to be apart of something like that."

Able to play either side of the ball, Matich says it has always been defense for the Broncos.

Throughout the process, he also had a great opportunity to get to know new head coach P.J. Fleck and the newest Bronco says seeing is believing.

"All I have to say is, you have to see it for yourself. He is unlike anyone I have ever met and an inspiration to play for, but in a couple years from now, I would be ready for Western Michigan."
