Shane Huber, a New Jersey linebacker who committed to UMass back in July, has decommitted and will open up his recruitment.
Scout’s Brian Dohn broke the news on Twitter:
Rivals’ Matt Hladik also tweeted about Huber’s decision.
Huber was high on UMass early, and was one of the first recruits to publicly praise Charley Molnar and his staff. Back then he had offers from Navy, Temple, UCF and Buffalo. Rivals has the same schools interested. 247 Sports and Scout have the same. This is just speculation, but I’m guessing Rutgers is getting involved after Huber’s impressive senior year, which culminated in a Chesapeake Bowl invitation.
With Huber’s decommitment, the remaining 2013 linebacker committed is Steve Casali. Catholic Memorial standout Peter Ngobidi is a tweener, and it’s unclear whether he will play linebacker of defensive end at the next level.
