Zordich Commits to the Lions

With A.J. Alexander and Andrew Sweat committing elsewhere, Nittany Nation was in dire need of some good news. They got it today when Cardinal Mooney linebacker Michael Zordich committed to Penn State during an unofficial visit to the campus this afternoon.

Earlier this week Zorich talked about PSU, saying, "Penn State is a program I've been around my whole life, with my dad having played there. Penn State is a great school and I think Joe Paterno is awesome and one of the greatest coaches in history. Coach Bradley, the defensive coordinator, is a great coach too. I just like the tradition that they have and they always play great defense. Penn State is just a great school and a great program."

Like he said in the comment above, Zordich is a legacy recruit. His father, Michael Sr., played for the Nittany Lions from 1982-1985 and was a key member of the 1982 National Championship team. He went on to play a long career in the NFL with the Jets, Cardinals, and Eagles.

The 6'1" 220 lb linebacker sports an impressive list of offers from schools like Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, LSU, Michigan State, Oklahoma, and Syracuse. He also saw a lot of interest from Notre Dame, but the Irish recently signed three other linebacker recruits and backed off a bit. Zordich was said to be down to Penn State and Ohio State in recent weeks. The recent verbal by Andrew Sweat to the Buckeyes may have played a role in his decision.

Zordich will make a fine addition to the Nittany Lion family.
