Deshai Powell flips to Eastern Michigan

By Jared Shanker

Defensive end Deshai Powell (Indianapolis/Lawrence Central) committed to Eastern Michigan on Sunday, breaking his pledge to Western Michigan.

Powell officially visited Eastern Michigan this past weekend. He committed to Western Michigan on Sept. 20 but said he's been open for a little while.

"One thing was that WMU hadn't made no attempts to get in contact with me for the last two months so I was open," he said. "Then after going on the official [to EMU] I loved the coaches and their honesty and just warm welcoming."
