UMass picked up an offensive lineman with an impressive list of offers.
Sam Zeff, an offensive lineman from New Jersey, has verbally committed to UMass, according to XOFan. Brian Dohn from Scout confirmed on Twitter. Earlier this week, it was reported that Zeff was visiting Amherst today with his parents.
Zeff held offers from UConn, Rutgers, Temple, Tulane and Yale, according to Rivals. The 6’5, 277-pound lineman is a two-star recruit.
Check out his highlights here.
UMass now has two offensive linemen in its 2013 class. Here is the updated list of committed recruits.
- Cole Ormsby, DE: Windsor HS (Conn)
- Todd Stafford, QB: Greenwich HS (Conn)
- Steven Casali, LB/RB: Sachem East HS (N.Y.)
- Sha-ki Holines, DE: Commerce HS (Mass)
- Richard Queen, OL: Bergen Catholic HC (N.J.)
- Sam Zeff, OL: Montclair High School (N.J)
Today’s commitment is particularly impressive considering the schools also showing interest. For awhile it appeared that UMass was a little behind in the recruiting department – this week, the Minutemen added five recruits.
UMass fans will remember that Coach Molnar promised to recruit the Northeast first and then head down the East Coast. If the first round of commitments is any indication, he is staying true to that strategy.
To put things in perspective, UMass now has more commits than Akron (2), Buffalo (2), Bowling Green (4), Eastern Michigan (1), Kent State (4), Miami (OH) (4), Ohio (1), and Western Michigan (2), according to Rivals.
