P.J. Fleck and the Western Michigan University coaching staff received word on Wednesday evening, April 23, that wide receiver Cash Conder has given his verbal commitment. The commitment comes after Conder visited Kalamazoo for Western's spring football game.
Conder, a 6-foot, 190-pound wide receiver out of Celina, Texas becomes the eighth Bronco commit of the 2015 recruiting class. Fleck and company appear to be well on their way to replicating their historic recruiting class of 2014, which rated in the top 60 -- largely unheard of among Mid American Conference teams.
"I wanted to be apart of something bigger than myself," Conder told me via direct message. "Coach Fleck has this program on the rise! He really likes the way I move in space and how I can be an impact possession receiver for his program."
WMU coaches cannot comment on a recruit that hasn't signed a national letter of intent, per NCAA regulations. Conder continued: "When he told me that he sees a lot of himself when he sees me play, I had to take notice."
According to Conder's Rival profile, Akron had also offered a scholarship. Other schools such as Indiana, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, Tulane, Tulsa and UTEP reportedly showed interest.
