Palm Beach Central OL Brandon De La Cruz commits to Western Illinois 

By Matt Porter

Broncos center Brandon De La Cruz, a Palm Beach Post all-area honorable mention, will play football at Western Illinois.

De La Cruz (6-3, 290, No. 72 on the Big Board) visited the school last weekend. He also had interest from UCF and FAU.

He becomes the 33rd player of the top 75 Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast prospects to give a verbal commitment.

The Leathernecks compete in the FCS (Div. 1-AA) Missouri Valley Conference.
