Recruiting continues to pick up for Demhasaj

After redshirting this season due to a torn ACL that he suffered the first day of spring practice, Nassau OT Zenel Demhasaj (6-7, 320) has seen recruiting hit a steady pace as four-year schools have come looking for a talented bookend tackle. caught up with Demhasaj recently and he updated us on where things stand...

"Things are going good," Demhasaj told recently. "I'm getting healthy and I have two offers right now and I've got a lot of schools calling, looking for my film and asking my coaches about me."

Heading into the season, Demhasaj had offers from Bowling Green and Cincinnati and he's close to setting up visits with two Big East schools who have picked up the interest level as well.

"Pittsburgh and South Florida both have been talking to me a lot," Demhasaj said. "I'm also hearing from Western Michigan, Akron and Mississippi State and Rutgers is a school I'm pretty interested in too."

Demhasaj was a standout tackle for Nassau in 2009 and was expected to be one of the top JUCO tackles in the country this fall, but he suffered a torn ACL in the spring and redshirted this fall.

"I was just pulling and I landed wrong on it and I tore it, so I was obviously done with football this year," Demhasaj told back in June. "I'm disappointed by it because I wanted to have a big year."

Demhasaj is set to finish his AA in December and he plans to sign with a school during the mid-year signing period (December 15th - January 15th). Wherever he ends up, the talented offensive lineman will have three years to play three the moment he steps on campus.
