Wyomissing RB/LB Alex Anzalone issues verbal declaration to Notre Dame
Pennsylvania’s top linebacker prospect in the 2013 recruiting class has made his choice of where he will continue his collegiate football career.
Alex Anzalone, a 6’3, 220-pound running back/linebacker from Wyomissing Area High School in Berks County, issued a verbal declaration to Notre Dame Sunday evening, according to national recruiting services Scout.com and Rivals.com.
Anzalone becomes the second Keystone State prospect to declare to Notre Dame – joining Penn Charter offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey. Prior to choosing Notre Dame, Anzalone had reportedly declared to Ohio State, but rescinded the declaration soon after.
During his recruiting process, Anzalone had more than 20 scholarship offers, including, but not limited to, Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Stanford, Southern California, Washington and Wisconsin, among others.
Scout.com ranked Anzalone as the No. 4 outside linebacker prospect in the 2013 recruiting class and assigned him a four-star rating, making him Pennsylvania’s top-rated linebacker prospect.
A key two-way presence for traditional District 3 powerhouse Wyomissing, which finished 11-1 overall and reached the District 3 AA championship game opposite Lancaster Catholic, Anzalone was part of a Spartan defensive unit, including both first string and reserves, which allowed an average of 10.9 points per game, limiting nine of 12 opponents to 14 points or less, with two shutouts.
Offensively, Anzalone ran for a team-leading 917 yards on 79 carries and caught eight passes for 171 yards, averaging 11.6 yards per carry and 21.3 yards per reception, scoring 15 total touchdowns.
Since the start of the 2000 season, Wyomissing has posted an overall record of 105-30 (.793).
