Jesse Back: UB Receives its second commit

Rodney McKissic reported this week that Coach Quinn has secured his second verbal commitment for the class of 2011.

Jesse Back, an offensive line man from Lassale High School (Cincinnati) first caught Coach Quinn's eye during camps while Quinn was with the Bearcats:
"Jesse went to U.C.’s camp last summer. I guess he did really well and Jeff Quinn really liked him. So, when Coach Quinn got the job, you know, Jesse was one of the first guys he contacted." -- Lasalle High School Football Coach Tom Grippa
Back camped with Buffalo earlier this month measures 6 feet 4 and 280 pounds (ESPN has him at 240 but several other sources have him between 270 and 285). Along with Buffalo he was considering, and being recruited by Miami, Ohio, Bowling Green and Akron.

This is Coach Quinn's second recruit (along with John Kling), so far both verbal commitments are offensive linemen, an area in which Buffalo needs to reload with three seniors and two juniors currently on the roster.

The only film I could find on Back was the highlight video for his quarterback (Bound for Miami of Ohio). Back (#54) is primarily lining up of left Guard
