Eastern Michigan University athletics have had themselves a jam-packed summer with new basketball and football recruits.
In just a couple of months, the men’s basketball team signed Georgetown transfer Jalin Billingsley, Providence transfer Legend Greeter, former Michigan Mr. Basketball Finalist and Duquesne transfer Tyson Acuff, former Michigan Mr. Basketball contender Orlando Lovejoy, and most recently, a commitment from former number one overall recruit in the nation and Memphis transfer Emoni Bates.
The basketball program, however, isn't the only team that’s been adding talent to their program.
Three-star cornerback Daiquan White announced his commitment to EMU’s football program on Aug. 1.
Daiquan White, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back from Fairburn, Georgia is currently high school teammates with three-star defensive lineman and fellow Eastern Michigan football commit, Malik Tullis.
White’s commitment boosted the Eagles into the number one spot in the 2023 recruiting class rankings (247sports.com). This marked the first time in program history that Eastern Michigan held the number one spot in the football recruiting class rankings within the Mid-American Conference.
Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University continue to contest EMU, trading stints at number one with each new recruit. Currently, the number one spot is held by Western Michigan University, number two is Central Michigan, followed by Toledo University at number three and the Eagles sit at fourth.
With a few more commitments, the Eagles could officially secure the number one recruiting class for the class of 2023 and set it in stone. If that happens, the Eagles would be adding even more talent to the young, promising core they currently have.
