Shane Huber tweeted about his verbal last night. Huber, who we have mentioned a few times recently, is a 3-star linebacker, as rated by ESPN. He is the 11th verbal for Coach Molnar’s class of 2013. He is going to be a senior at St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City.
After broadcasting his commitment to the twitterverse, Shane received dozens of @replys and retweets. It’s good to see UMass fans coming out in force on twitter.
I suppose we shouldn’t be surprise by Shane’s decision. He clearly enjoyed his visit to Amherst a couple weeks ago. Honestly, it would have been really disheartening had Huber NOT committed, after his glowing review of the school, campus and coaches.
Huber held offers from Buffalo, Temple, Navy and UCF. It had been reported that UMass and UCF were the finalists. In the end, Sam The Minuteman won out over Daffy Duck. Good choice.
