Boone offensive lineman Max Lang, who said two weeks ago he had narrowed his list of prospective colleges to three but did not want to make them public, made one public Tuesday when he committed to the USF Bulls, over TCU, South Carolina and Duke.
"There's a lot of reasons. At the end of the day it's always felt right to me," Lang said. "I love the coaching. There's a lot of things about it that I really like.
"The main thing was the coaching itself. It is close to home, which is a factor. It is everything I really wanted to be in. It was a great spot for me and my family at the same time."
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Lang said TCU didn't turn out to be the right situation.
"South Carolina and Duke were also close," he said, "but USF had everything for me as a player and as a person."
Lang, the No. 10-ranked player in the Sentinel's Central Florida Super60 had 16 offers with Florida State, Texas Tech, Arizona State and UCF among the others.
Lang, the 11th commitment to the USF class of 2011, said he is hoping to graduate early and enroll early in college but is not sure he can pull that off.
"I'm not sure if that will work. I have a couple more classes I'd have to take. I'll have to talk it over with my family."Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
