Ohio University accepted the commitment from Mentor defensive standout Kurt Laseak. As one of the top players on one of Ohio's best teams, Laseak is expected to be one of the top recruits in the 2012 Bobcat recruiting class.

Ohio University continues to add both quality football players and young men from winning backgrounds, and Mentor linebacker Kurt Laseak qualifies on both accounts.

Laseak, 6-foot-4, 220-pounds, verbally committed to Ohio after visiting the school earlier for the game against Garner-Webb. He is expected to play defensive end for the Bobcats.

"I was offered last spring and I wanted to see who else would offer," Laseak stated. "I went there two weeks ago for their game to see how the game-day atmosphere was, and I loved it there."

"The campus was beautiful and it's just a great program overall," he added. "I think a lot of the coaches, so I committed to them. I was recruited by Coach (Pete) Germano and he is also the defensive line coach."

Mentor is currently undefeated and ranked as the number two team in the computer rankings for Division-I, Region-I.

"We are having a great year so far as a team, and having a lot of fun," he explained. "For me personally, I'm playing well. I have over 50 tackles so far and my coaches are happy with my play."

Laseak was also offered by Kent State and Buffalo, before deciding on Ohio University as his school of choice.
