Lance Leipold Lands a Trench Trophy Finalist

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Lance Leipold has been busy on the recruiting trail, but the newest pull comes from his own backyard. Offensive Tackle Evin Ksiezarczyk commits to Buffalo after a season that ended with him on the Class A first team and a finalist for the Trench Trophy.

The West Seneca East Senior High School star started three years and during that time East went 24-5 during those years. Unsurprisingly, Ksiezarczyk was a team captain whose most memorable game was beating West Seneca West. "What stood out was how dominant he was," said coach Jim Maurino. " Not only was he executing his assignments, he was going to the next level. He was always getting to the next guy."

Evin announced his decision on his Twitter account on Sunday night after taking an official visit over the weekend.

"Blessed to announce that I am committed to play football at the University at Buffalo. #HornsUp"

He chose Buffalo over reported offers from Nevada, Old Dominion, and UTEP. According to the Buffalo News several MAC schools had also expressed interest.

He committed to Buffalo in part because he wants the chance to play Division One football in front of his family and "22,000 other people."

At 6-foot-6 295 pounds, Evin is nearly MAC sized already and has enough space on his ram to add more weight.

Off the field he is an undecided major.
