New York LB pulls the trigger

Webster (N.Y.) Schroeder is home to two of the Empire State's top Class of 2005 prospects. One of them, offensive lineman Justin Schifano, has already made an early commitment to Michigan, and the other, linebacker Mike Stenclik, has also decided to end it early.
"Mike committed to Syracuse this weekend," Webster Schroeder assistant Jim Bellucco said this morning.
The 6-1, 225 pound linebacker also had offers from Boston College and UConn at the time of his commitment, but just felt at home with the Orangemen.
"It was just a combination of things," Bellucco continued, "he liked the coaches, the program, the atmosphere. He's done too, he won't be decommitting or changing his mind if other schools come in later."
As a junior, Stenclik was a standout on both sides of the ball. He was named all-state and All-Rochester Area Player of the Year after he recorded 80 tackles and five sacks at linebacker. He also rushed for over 1,000 yards at running back.
He also had a standout showing at the 2003 NIKE Camp at State College (Pa.), clocking a 4.50 in the 40, a 4.42 in the shuttle, benching 14 reps and posting a 32.8-inch vertical jump.
