With the installation of Brian Borland's new 4-3 base defensive scheme there was a youth movement along the defensive line with several redshirt and true freshmen getting playing time along the front four. Caoch Borland stuck close to home and nabbed a versatile lineman in Williamsville South's Jake Fuzak.
Fuzak has an intimidating frame standing at 6-5 and checking in at 265 pounds and is rated either a high two-star or a three-star depending on the recruiting service you're looking at.

Typically UB's local recruits don't have the most robust recruiting profiles, but Fuzak may be an exception. In addition to UB, Jake held offers from Old Dominion and UConn, according to 247sports. Not an overly lengthy list, but beating out a school like UConn is always nice.
You'll notice in the above highlight reel that Fuzak is an absolute terror at the point of attack, using his sheer size and strength to bully his way past opposing offensive linemen to wreck havoc in the opposing backfield. In addition to a fierce pass-rush, Fuzak utilizes his size to be a force in the run game as well - an area where UB sorely needs help. In addition to his on field abilities, Fuzak is involved in the community off the field.
With the youth movement along the defensive line it will take some impressive training camp work from Fuzak to play in year 1. However, Fuzak is a big-bodied and strong lineman that is excellent in the run game, an area where UB sorely needs help; he can also play inside or outside on the line which makes him a versatile piece that Borland can plug in anywhere he needs
