Written by
Jeff Corrion

The month of June for the Western Michigan Broncos has been full of commits in the Class of 2014. With 9 total commits from the Country and most importantly 6 in-state commits. First year head coach - P.J. Fleck has the Broncos on the right footing after taking over the program this past winter, all Fleck has been able to do is recruit future Broncos, which is something he has done exceptionally well. One tough decision, Fleck will face is what side he wants to play Asantay Brown of Mona Shores. Brown is equally lethal on both offense and defense. With the Class of 2014 filling up with DB commits, Brown could be one of Chance Stewart's most reliable and dangerous weapons in the near future!
