Eastern Michigan leads for Lance Lenoir

By Jared Shanker

Eastern Michigan is at the top of the list for receiver Lance Lenoir Jr. (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee).

Lenoir officially visited Eastern Michigan the weekend of Dec. 14 and said the visit was "wonderful."

"I really liked it up there. The facilities are nice and we ate with the [school] president," Lenoir said. "I learned a lot about the school. The uniforms look slick, too."

The 6-foot, 168-pound Lenoir likes that he would have an opportunity to play early.

"They told me it doesn't matter what grade you're in as long as you always go out and compete," he said. "They said a lot of freshmen have made an impact, so I think I can be that guy. I love competition so that's music to my ears."

Lenoir's other offer comes from UAB, and he will visit the Blazers the weekend of Jan. 25. The Blazers are playing a bit of catch up at the moment.

"I still want to take more visits, he said, "but Eastern Michigan is at the top of my list."
