From: Hewlett, New York
High School: George W. Hewlett
Colorado landed their third defensive tackle prospect for the 2006 class yesterday as Ian Assael from Hewlett, New York signed with the Buffs. The 6-2, 308-pound prospect waited until after signing day to send in his papers. The word is that he also had interest from Virginia, Syracuse and the Ivy League before deciding on the Buffs. But, it is not known what other schools had offered, if any.
The lineman played at guard and d-tackle this season and was an all-Nassau pick after recording 53 tackles and four sacks. He was named second team all-Long Island as a junior.
The Buffalo Sports News will attempt so speak with Assael in the coming days to get the full lowdown on the newest Buff.
