Fradi: 'After this weekend we got a lot closer'
Also taking his official visit to Central Michigan this weekend was verbal commitment Nores Fradi from Dearborn (MI). ChippewaCountry was able to catch up with the talented linebacker to get his thoughts on head coach Dan Enos as well as his visit to CMU.
Fradi was a three year starter at Dearborn High and tallied 103 tackles as a senior. He also added 587 yards and 5 touchdowns as a running back for the Pioneers. Those stats helped become a three star prospect and he was one of the key priorities for new head coach Dan Enos when he took over at CMU. Enos and Fradi became familiar with each other while Enos was still an assistant at Michigan State, but their familiarity stretches beyond that because both of them hail from Dearborn, MI (Enos was a quarterback at Dearborn Edsel Ford).
"Me and him are pretty close," said Fradi. "After this weekend we got a lot closer to. It's nice because we come from the same city and all. I think he's going to be a great coach at CMU and I can't wait to get up there and play for him."
Enos even made a pitch to get Fradi in the green and white while he was recruiting him to Michigan State.
"When I went to the camp at Michigan State he really liked me. He was trying to get the staff to offer me but they had some other linebackers as a priority. He showed me a lot of respect when he was recruiting me and I think he was happy to see I was going to go to CMU when he got here."
After his visit to CMU, Fradi is not only more familiar with Coach Enos, but the university as a whole.
"I got a little more of a feel for the university. The people are great and the atmosphere was really good. They showed me a lot of things and I got to hang out with a bunch of the players. I had a lot of fun getting to know them and hanging out with them. We went to eat at some nice place and I had a great time hanging out with Aaron McCord."
As previously mentioned, Fradi was joined by fellow 2010 verbal commits Johnathan Taylor and Joe Wirth who were both on their official visits as well. When asked about Fradi, Taylor laughed and said he was a "character".
"They were a little more laid back," laughed Fradi. "I was the one doing most of the talking and cracking jokes. I got to know both of them pretty well though and they seem like they are going to be great guys."
