Madonna Quarterback Picks UMass As College Destination

Updated: Wednesday, January 29 2014, 05:51 PM EST

Madonna senior quarterback Ross Comis officially gave a verbal commitment to the coaching staff at the University of Massachusetts during his official visit this weekend.
 
Comis will be part of head coach Mark Whipple's first recruiting class in his second stint at the NCAA Division I school. The Minutemen currently play in the Mid-American Conference. Whipple led the Minutemen to the Division I-AA national title in 1998. After leaving UMASS in 2003, Whipple served as Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback coach for three years. Most recently he was Cleveland Browns QB coach in 2011-2012.
 
Comis recently wrapped up a record-breaking high school football career at Madonna, helping lead the Blue Dons to the West Virginia Class A state championship.  Comis earned our Belmont Savings Bank Big 22 Player of the Year award after a senior season in which he rushed for more than 2,000 yards and 35 touchdowns, while passing for more than 1,700 yards and 22 scores.
 
Comis had invited walk-on opportunities on the table from Pittsburgh and West Virginia.
 
He will be able to sign his National Letter of Intent with UMass when the signing period opens February 5th.
