Zielinski Planning To Camp At Duke

If you've followed the recruitment of Zach Zielinski so far you know by now the York, Pa., native isn't afraid of travel. During spring break the offensive lineman made a stop at UNLV to learn about their program and had a new visitor this week at school.

Unfortunately, Zach Zielinski was not able to attend the Scout.com Combine in Randolph, N.J., because a connecting flight back home from Las Vegas was delayed, however the 6-foot-8, 320-pound York Catholic standout was able to nail down a visit while on his vacation.

"My visit to UNLV went really well," Zielinski said. "Their offensive line coach had us out for the spring scrimmage as it was coaches' day and the media was all there, but then invited us back that Monday for a private tour of the campus. The campus was very nice and actually bigger then I thought it would be. The way the offensive linemen warmed up was unique and something I may take home with me and I felt comfortable while I was on campus. UNLV is definitely a place I could see myself going and they invited me back for camp this summer, so we'll have to look into possibly making that trip."

Zielinski has still been hearing from his normal group of suitors and has been keeping in touch by email or text with all schools, but has also had increased contact with Buffalo and Boston College as of late. He also had an unexpected visitor at school this week that brings a new school into the picture.

"The offensive line coach from Georgia Tech (Joe D'Alessandris) was at my school today and gathered some introductory information from me," Zielinski added. "I don't know much about Georgia Tech, but he was a nice man and invited me down for camp this summer, so I'll be sure to do research on them academically and as a football program over the next few weeks."

In terms of camp plans for the summer, Zielinski will definitely be making stops at Notre Dame, Duke, West Virgini
