OH CANADA! Vancouver lineman commits to LSU

The Vancouver College Football Web site calls Peter Dyakowski's commitment to LSU "the biggest university signing for any BC high school football player." Dyakowski, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound offensive line from Vancouver, British Columbia, cannot sign with the Tigers until Feb. 6, but he gives LSU 23 verbal commitments for 2002.

Dyakowski was the driving force on the Vancouver College (equivalent of American high school) offense that racked up 2,030 rushing yards in the 2001 regular season. Including the playoffs, VC finished the year with an 8-4 record.

Washington, Oregon State and Stanford had already hosted Dyakowski when he made his final trip to LSU last weekend. He and other prospects were given a tour of the campus and its athletic facilities and saw the LSU track and field team compete in the Purple Tiger Invitational. Dyakowski is the second athlete from last weekend's visits to commit to the Tigers, joining Pensacola, Fla., linebacker Willie Demps.

Dyakowski also participates in wrestling and track and field at Vancouver College. In his junior year of competition, he claimed the Vancouver/North Shore Zone wrestling championship.

Check back tomorrow for comments from Dyakowski and his coach, Tony Howie.
