Jasudowich Flips to Stay Home

Cory Jasudowich

Cheshire (Conn.) Academy linebacker Cory Jasudowich discusses his decision to flip his commitment from Boston College to Connecticut.

For the first time in a while Cory Jasudowich has peace of mind.

After spending plenty of time mulling over the status of commitment to Boston College, the 6-foot-2, 230-pound middle linebacker switched his commitment to home state Connecticut, and he's feeling very good about it.

"That weight off your shoulders is the best feeling because it is a very stressful thing," the Cheshire (Conn.) Academy standout said. "I don't think people realize that. Just to have your mind set on one school and go through with it is just the best feeling."

It is quite a turn for Jasudowich, who committed to Boston College in June.

However, Connecticut kept in contact with him, and the communication intensified recently.

"It's been going on for a little bit," Jasudowich said. "I actually got the chance to talk to the (staff) a little bit (Tuesday), but this had been running through my mind for a little while. I talked to my parents and I just thought this was the right decision so I went through with it and I couldn't be happier.

"It's so close to home and the academics of the school and the facilities …I found myself looking at the school as a much better fit for me. B.C. is an awesome school, but I look into it deeper and I don't feel that school is the right one for me as a person."

Jasudowich called the coaching staffs of the schools to alert them of his decision, but only after speaking with Cheshire coach David Dykman.

The added bonus of playing for the in-state school also weighed into the decision.

"There's nothing like playing for Connecticut," Jasudowich said. "I grew up here and I'm a Connecticut native playing for the school. It can't get any better than that."

Jasudowich was heading to Boston College to play middle linebacker, and he believes he will play inside for the Huskies as well. But that conversation has not taken place yet, and won't until he makes an official visit at a yet-to-determined time.

However, his connection with the staff overrides any talk of his position in college.

"Hopefully, that's inside linebacker but I'm willing to help the team any way that I can," Jasudowich said. "(The UConn staff is) a group of guys I can see myself playing for. They want hard-nosed football players. I got that vibe from them from Day One when I attended their camps. That is pretty much what made me fall in love with not only the school, but the coaching staff also."
