Essexville Garber ATH Ben VanSumeren decommits from Western Michigan

It's the Friday morning that Western Michigan coaches would hope to never have as Essexville Garber 2018 ATH Ben VanSumeren ended his 3-month commitment to Western Michigan.  At the time of his commitment to Western Michigan VanSumeren visited WMU, was offered by WMU, and then the next day he committed.  In March Eastern Michigan and Columbia followed with offers and we imagine tons of schools want to evaluate the athletic specimen in-person this summer.

VanSumeren is 6'3" 215 lbs and had the highest Nike Opening score with 127.74 when he participated in Cleveland.  VanSumeren had a 40.3" vertical jump and a 4.03 short shuttle.

In a release, VanSumeren stated the past month has been stressful for him as many schools have begun to show interest.

VanSumeren figures to be utilized out wide or in an H-Back role where his size and athleticism cause mismatches with linebackers.

As for what's next for the Bay City area prospect, camp season will provide us with that answer.
