Cornerback Lametrius Davis of Butte College and defensive lineman Zack Masch of Arizona Western College made verbal commitments to UH yesterday.
Davis is 6 fee1 and 193 pounds. He ran 40 yards in 4.38 seconds at the NorCal JC Combine the past summer. He has a 36-inch vertical jump.
Masch is 6 feet 3 and 290 pounds. He can bench press a maximum 405 pounds. He was a high school teammate of UH quarterback Steele Jantz.
Masch made the decision based partly on the support of UH fans. “Going to the (UH-Cincinnati) game was what clicked in,” he said.
Davis and Masch will both earn their associate degrees next week. Masch, for sure, will enroll at UH in January. Davis wishes to do the same, although he is waiting to see if all of his JC credits will transfer. If not, he will move to Hawai‘i in May.
