Jersey tackle joins Minutemen

Two-star offensive tackle Sam Zeff (Montclair, N.J.) has committed to UMass, multiple sources report.

Massachusetts's campus and coaching staff stood out for Zeff, according to the Star-Ledger:

"The school itself I really liked a lot, and I like what the coaches want from their players. They want kids who want to work, kids with good character and a team that sticks together."

Connecticut, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Temple, Tulane and Yale also offered the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder.

Massachusetts, which will join the Mid-American Conference in the fall, now has three commitments for the Class of 2013.
