Tico Brown's first option turned out to be the best in the end.

The Homestead senior defensive lineman committed to Central Michigan last week, the first Division I program to offer him in late January.

"I want to thank (Central Michigan coach John Bonamego) and the rest of the staff for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dream of playing D1 football," said Brown in a tweet.

Brown chose the Chippewas over a trio of other MAC offers — BallState, Eastern Michigan and Ohio.

At 6-foot-2, 275 pounds, Brown is a grinder along the defensive front with some speed to come around the edge. He accounted for 90 tackles and 11.5 sacks as a junior for the Spartans last season, including 18 tackles for loss. He was named All-SAC First Team.

The Chippewas went 6-7 a season ago capped by a 55-10 loss to Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl.
