Rush Reacts to CMU Commitment

This past weekend, one of the top quarterbacks in the state of Michigan for the Class of 2012 committed to Central Michigan. It was 6-foot-4, 220 pound Cooper Rush from Lansing Catholic Central.

"I committed Saturday when I got back from the Michigan State camp. My family and I talked about everything that had happened and what I liked about all the schools. We decided that it was best for me to commit to Central Michigan."

When Rush made the call Saturday to Enos, they greeted him with excitement as he entered the Central Michigan family.

"They were really excited and welcomed me to the Chippewa Family. They are excited to work with me and they think that I have a lot of potential to grow. Now I am going to focus on my senior year and having a great season. I'm just going to enjoy it, which Coach Enos emphasized."

Rush has been impressed with Central Michigan since the beginning of his recruitment. Head coach Dan Enos has always talked to him about academics, athletics and social atmosphere. Those are three big things that helped Rush decide that CMU was the right place for him.

"I really like the people, the coaches, Coach Enos and just all the people around Central Michigan. I like the academics, the social life and just everything."
With Rush committed to the Chippewas, he will now turn his focus to the 7-on-7 National Championships in Dallas on June 30. He is the quarterback for the Michigan Elite and he is hoping they represent the state of Michigan well in Texas.

"I am playing June 30 in the 7-on-7 national championships. I am just going to get ready for that. We have practice this weekend for it. I'm excited, it will be a great opportunity."
