New Hampshire Union-Leader staff writer and ESPN Boston contributor Marc Thaler is reporting Tuesday morning on his "New Hampshire GameDay" blog that two-star offensive tackle Jake Kennedy (Amherst, N.H./Souhegan) has verbally committed to the University of New Hampshire for the 2013 season.
Kennedy chose the Wildcats over six other scholarship offers among programs in Division I FBS (UMass) and FCS (Rhode Island, Maine, Fordham, Colgate, Holy Cross). ESPN rates Kennedy as the top prospect in the Granite State, and told Thaler he felt a "comfort level" with the coaching staff at the Durham, N.H., campus.
"That's not to say I wasn't comfortable with the other schools. But UNH felt right," Kennedy told Thaler. "I'm very happy and glad I made my decision."
