Max Suter should be the poster boy for why athlete's should attend combines. Outside of those in western Pennsylvania nobody knew about Suter six months ago. After a number of great showings at combines Suter landed a handful of offers. Wednesday he made his college choice. caught up with Greensburg (Pa.) Central Catholic head coach Muzzy Colosimo this morning. Colosimo gave us the latest on one of his prized juniors.

Suter held offers from Syracuse, Temple, Akron, Delaware and New Hampshire. What stood out about Syracuse.

"He loved it there," Colosimo explained. "He really liked the coaches. He came home from his visit and asked me how long he had to wait to decided. I told him do whatever you think is best, so he called and committed."

We asked Colosimo to describe Suter in his own words.

"I have been coaching for a lot of years and he is one of the best I have had. he has a non-stop motor and he has given up a lot. In seven of our nine games the mercy rule has kicked in, so Max only played up until the first series of the third quarter. He is a team guy.I can honestly say when he graduates I'll probably cry like a baby. this is a special group of juniors I have here."

Suter say's that Syracuse likes him as a safety and a running back.

"They said they like me at both positions, so we'll have to see how it works out," Suter said. "

"I went up and visited and I felt like it was the best fit for me. I really liked the coaches, especially Coach (Greg) Robinson and Coach Spencer."

Suter had standout performances at the Scout.Com all-American Combine at Pittsburgh and the Elite College combine in New Jersey.
