Cameron Vaughn is one of the recent three new commits to Central Michigan's 2019 class.

Since the end of June, the Central Michigan football team has loaded up its 2019 class, securing three new commits. 

The Chippewas received verbals from Haines City (Fla.) Senior three-star offensive tackle Cameron Vaughn, Farmington (Mich.) Harrison three-star strong-side defensive end Maverick Hansen and Flossmoor (Ill.) Homewood-Flossmoor two-star outside linebacker Justin Whiteside. 

Led by head coach John Bonamego, CMU now has 12 commits in its 2019 class.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive lineman picked CMU over Bowling Green, South Carolina and UCF.
