Recruiting: Cermak commits (Updated)

Heritage (Tenn) High linebacker Michael Cermak sent out one football highlight reel for recruiting.
Take a guess Guess Cermak’s college of choice? West Point.
Cermak made an unofficial visit to West Point on Oct. 10, the day before the Vanderbilt game. He toured Army’s facilities including its weight room and met with rover coach John Brock.

Cermak was in attendance for Army’s 16-13 overtime win over Vandy. He recently verbally committed to Army.

“I fell in love with West Point,” Cermak told the Times Herald-Record. “It felt right. It felt like the perfect school for me. I love the quality of education and the prestige and reputation of West Point had and the quality of football. They are heading in the right direction.”

So what caliber of football player is Army getting in Cermak?

Cermak made 19 tackles in a 21-7 win over Knoxville Christian, the defending Tennessee 5A champions, last week. It doesn’t end there. Cermak, in his first game as a running back, rushed for 120 yards and three touchdowns. Two of the rushing touchdowns came out of Heritage’s “Wild Mountaineer” offense, where Cermak took direct snaps.

Last year, Cermak played one game at wide receiver and caught two passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.

Cermak was recruited by Ivy League schools Harvard and Princeton. He received a recruiting letter from Nebraska but pursued only West Point.

Cermak is a four-year varsity football player and will play his fourth season of baseball in the spring.

Cermak said he hasn’t decided whether he’ll be a direct admit or attend Army Prep next fall.
