Former Nature Coast star and current Western Michigan true freshman Tevin Drake could see action as early as this Saturday according to a report in the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette.
The 6-foot-1, 210 pound running back had been receiving reps with the first and second units as the Broncos were idle last week, and he has continued working with the second unit as Western Michigan (1-2) prepares to host Idaho on Saturday.
"We're trying to get him ready and then we'll see what happens," Western Michigan head coach Bill Cubit told the Kalamazoo Gazette.
Drake got a late start to his collegiate career after a NCAA Clearinghouse issue kept him from attending fall camp at Western Michigan. He wasn't allowed to practice with the Broncos until September 6 when the issue was resolved, but it appears the Brooksville native is making an immediate impact.
Drake was the second-leading rusher all time on the North Suncoast with almost 5,000 yards.
