On Tuesday evening, Lansing Catholic quarterback Tony Poljan announced on Twitter that he is committing to Central Michigan, where he will likely play quarterback.

“Happy and blessed to announce my commitment to Central Michigan University! Fire Up Chips,” Poljan said in his tweet.

Poljan will now join former Lansing Catholic quarterback, Cooper Rush, who is currently the starting signal caller in Mt. Pleasant.

Poljan was originally committed to play at Minnesota, but decommitted shortly after head coach Jerry Kill stepped down as head coach of the Golden Gophers due to health concerns.

The star signal caller for the Cougars also received offers from Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Iowa State as well as several other Division 1 schools.

Poljan received offers to play quarterback or tight end at the college level.

In his senior season, Poljan amassed almost 3,500 total yards of offense and over 40 total touchdowns for Lansing Catholic as he helped lead the Cougars to the Division 5 semifinals after leading his team to the Division 5 state championship game as a junior.
