The Central Michigan men's basketball team has added three players to the 2019-20 class.

It involves two guards — 6-foot-5 Travon Broadway and 6-foot-2 Devontae Lane — with one forward in 6-foot-9 Caleb Hodgson. 

These three players are the first three of CMU's 2019-20 class. They have also offered three-star recruits Lucas Croft and Myron Gardner, two-star recruit Donovan Moore and unranked recruits Drew Lowder and KJ Cunningham, according to 247Sports.

Here is a breakdown of the three players:

Travon Broadway

Broadway is currently with the Iowa Western Community College after playing last season with St. Petersburg Community College. With SPCC, the Miami, FL native averaged 14.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Broadway made the FCSAA All-Conference First Team. He was a four-year starter at Coral Springs Christian Academy where he averaged 20.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. 

Devontae Lane

Lane has an interesting connection to CMU as he played with current CMU players David DiLeo and Rob Mongomery in his past. He played with DiLeo at Iowa West High School which is also where head coach Keno Davis attended. He led the Trojans to two state titles and averaged 14.9 points, 4.1 assists and 3.1 steals as a senior. In his entire four-year high school tenure, he totaled over 1,000 points. He played the last two seasons with Montgomery at Indian Hills Community College, as the point guard for a team who went 33-1 a season ago. 

Caleb Hogdson

Hodgson is still a senior at Dansville High School. He was rated a three-star prospect by 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals. The 6-foot-9 forward totaled 1,286 points, 838 rebounds and 258 blocks with Dansville while shooting at a 47 percent clip from beyond the arc. Last season as a junior, Hogdson averaged 23 points, 14 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game which earned him First Team All-State mentions from the Associated Press, Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press.
