Uncommitted Spotlight: Wagoner Back Out On Recruiting Circuit

TECUMSEH - When Cameron Wagoner committed to Central Michigan it was more than a commitment to the school. It was an allegiance to the coaches.

Then head coach Steve Jaksa retired. With assistant Jeff Opalewski not under consideration to lead the program (Jordan Bischel, the GLIAC Coach of the Year the last two seasons at Northwood, has since been named head coach), Wagoner decided to reopen his college recruitment.

“I loved coach Opalewski, he’s the reason I committed there,” explained the Tecumseh senior-to-be, who committed to CMU last October. “I knew I could trust coach Jaska and with coach Opalewski not getting the job … it’s not what you think of when you commit to a school.”

Interest in the 6-6 180-pound right-handed pitcher exploded at last year’s Future Games.

“I called a lot of schools after that,” explained Wagoner. “Sept. 1 was a crazy day. Starting at 1 a.m. every single school I called sent me a text. It all really kicked off at the Future Games.”

Xavier, Michigan State, Butler, Western Michigan, Kentucky and Wake Forest were among the those Wagoner had been in contact with before Central Michigan became his school of choice.

“I wanted to be done with recruitment,” Wagoner admitted.

Instead, the top-ranked unsigned 2019 in the state is now out on the open market.
