Zakrzewski Commits to the Hoosiers

Linebacker Matt Zakrzewski of Traverse City (Mich.) St. Francis High School had planned on attending Central Michigan University's 5-Star Recruiting Day this Sunday, but that all changed this afternoon.

Linebacker Matt Zakrzewski made his college choice moments ago.

"I just verbally committed to Indiana," Zakrzewski said.

Before making his pledge to the Hoosiers this afternoon during a visit to the Bloomington, Ind., campus, Zakrzewski had planned on attending Central Michigan's 5-Star Recruiting Day this Sunday.

"I probably won't be (going to CMU) now," Zakrzewski said.

The Chippewas were among the first schools to offer Zakrzewski a scholarship. In addition to the Hoosiers, he also had offers from the University of Missouri and Western Michigan.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Zakrzewski becomes the Hoosiers 16th commitment for their 2010 recruiting class and the second St. Francis Gladiator to commit to a Big Ten school for next year, joining Max Bullough, who committed to Michigan State last fall.
