Zeeland East 2019 LB and Western Michigan commit Boone Bonnema was the first commitment in the 2019 class class when he committed to the Broncos in February over several other MAC schools.
In the past week the Broncos have lost two of their highest rated commits with Naperville (Ill.) QB Payton Thorne who committed to Michigan State in Friday and Muskegon Mona Shores LB Jacob Wahlberg flipping his commitment to Purdue today.
“It’s tough losing a couple good friends in our class recently, but my heart is still at Western,” says Bonnema.
Although the loss of two commits so close to signing day is tough for any program Bonnema says there should be some commits coming soon.
“I’m not trying to recruit anyone to Western right now but I think we will have a couple more commits soon.”
When asked if he was committed to Western still he had a pretty simple answer.
“Yes I am! I am 100% committed to Western and will sign my NLI on Wednesday.”
The Broncos also picked up a commitment from Muskegon LB Ali’vonta Wallace today.
Bonnema will sign his NLI on Wednesday with teammate Adam Berghorst who will sign at Michigan State at 3:00 pm at Zeeland East High School.
