UMass Commit: Peter Angeh

(UMass commit Peter Angeh/ESPN)

Peter Angeh, a 2013 defensive end from Maryland that we’ve mentioned before, has committed to UMass.

He made the announcement on Twitter:

On Dec. 21, Angeh indicated that he was down to two schools: Ohio and UMass. He also holds offers from Western Michigan, Temple and Cincinnati, according to Rivals.

He posted a photo on instagram with a chart breaking down the pros and cons of both UMass and Ohio. The fact that there is a “9″ next to playing time isn’t lost on me.

It’s clear that Angeh, who is 6’3 and 245 pounds, plans to play defensive end at the next level. He told the Washington Post that “[No recruiter] has said anything about playing linebacker” during the recruiting process.

Angeh is the second “pure” defensive end to verbally commit, joining Cole Ormsby. Peter Ngobidi and Julian Taylor also played the position in high school, but Ngobidi may be a linebacker, and Taylor could play tight end.

Here are his senior year hudl highlights. Check out his junior highlights here:

    Happy days!!!! Defensive end is such a critical need on this team. What a great day to be a Umass fan. Sounds like we got a great player

    After seeing Peters video clip, i am more excited about him than any other recruit.He plays at such a high energy level, sheds blockers quickly to make tackles and uses leverage so well. His martial arts background seems to help him considerably. Welcome aboard Peter
