The Nevada Wolfpack held one scholarship in their 2013 class open and this week, found the player they were looking for to complete the class in Plymouth High kicker Brenton Zuzo.
"I committed and signed my LOI to the University of Nevada [on Tuesday]," the 5'9, 175-lb Zuzo reported. "I feel Nevada fits everything I was looking for in a university, both athletically and academically. I'm looking forward to the challenge and entering my next chapter of academics and athletics."
Kicking instructor Brandon Kornblue calls Zuzo one of the best kickers in the country, and his All-State honors and camp performances back that up.
While late signees are rare, this was the perfect fit for both sides, and Zuzo is thrilled to have found, not only a football program, but a school he feels comfortable at as well.
"I was trying to combine a solid education with an exciting football program which led me in the direction of Nevada. They have a top rate business school and a first year coach Brian Polian, a prior special teams coach from Texas A&M and Notre Dame. Their competition is solid and Nevada's coaches' outlook and enthusiasm is outstanding."
Signing Day came and went, but Zuzo stayed patient and was rewarded, but the biggest winner here may be Nevada, who, in the opinion of many who have seen their new kicker, landed a steal.
"It feels great to have signed with a choice I'm very comfortable with making, especially knowing it's the right choice for me."
