The Syracuse Orangemen added a commitment this week who could play numerous positions, including quarterback if needed.
"Ben verbally committed to Syracuse," said Warren (Pa.) Warren Area head coach Jeff Flickner of his star player, Ben Maljovec. "He visited there during the summer and camped at Syracuse and really liked it. He also liked the coaching staff. They want him as a safety and he could grow into a linebacker."
Maljovec plays quarterback and safety for Warren Area High School and, at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds with a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, is an excellent athlete.
"He has 44 career rushing touchdowns for us and is a terrific defensive player," said Flickner. "We finished 5-4 this season and most of those wins were because of Ben. We lost 18 seniors from our 9-2 team last year so Ben carried us this season."
Maljovec had offers from Iowa, Boston College and Vanderbilt, who also wanted him for defense. He's 100-percent solid in his commitment.
"He's a man of his word and a straight shooter," his coach said. "He's not going to go against his word. He's happy."
