Archbishop Hoban senior Brian Slack has orally committed to continue his academic and football careers at Miami (Ohio) University, Hoban coach Ralph Orsini said.

Slack, a 6-foot-5 and 230-pound athlete who played tight end and defensive end for the Knights, was a Division II All-Ohio Special Mention this past fall. He also earned first-team honors in the Northeast Inland district and in the North Coast League.

"They like to throw the ball and utilize their tight end's," Orsini said of the RedHawks. "Miami is one of top programs in the Mid-American Conference. Brian is probably one of the best tight end's in the state. He catches the ball really well and he blocks really well."

Slack had 25 receptions, 320 yards and had one touchdown last season. He also recorded 52 total tackles and had 4.5 sacks.

Orsini said Slack also considered Toledo, Ohio, Eastern Michigan, North Carolina State, Michigan State and Illinois.

"When he visited the school, he fell in love with it," Orsini said. "I think it will be a real good fit for him."
