Buffalo (N.Y.) Canisius tight end/defensive end Augiee Touris committed to UTEP.

It was a long journey for the University of Texas-El-Paso, but it paid dividends in going to Buffalo (N.Y.) Canisius High.

Augie Touris, a 6-fot-4, 215-pound defensive end/tight end, gave verbal commitment to UTEP during the week.

"I chose UTEP because they believed in me and have a lot of trust in my abilities," he said. "It's really an honor, and I'm privileged to have been given this opportunity," Touris said. "Canisius has given me so much, and I now have the opportunity to play at the highest level of college."

Touris was a key member of Canisius' 2013 state title team. He made two catches for 23 yards, but was used primarily as a blocking tight end. As a defensive end, he registered 14 tackles in sporadic duty.

"I've greatly enjoyed these last four years and I look forward to paying it back to UTEP," he said. "They saw me, they believed in me, and that's loyalty. It's my duty to pay it back, that's why I committed so soon."
