Spartans Add Big Tackle Zynn to go to 21 commits

"I figured out what I had to do in order to be as good as I needed and wanted to be," said Zynn. "The thing that I think helped me the most were camps over the summer…specifically USC's."

(EAST LANSING)- Give Michigan State coach John L. Smith's staff credit for being proactive. The Spartans needed a player who could step in and fill the void from the defection of Matthias Askew to the NFL and they got it when big 6-4, 305-lb Daniel Zynn committed verbally to the Spartans this weekend.

Zynn, will step in immediately for the Spartans and help fill the big shoes of Askew, who had over 60 tackles and six sacks for the Green and White in 2004.

The Pasadena, CA., native originally commited to Boise State where he was scheduled to red-shirt his freshman year, but instead made the decision to leave the Idaho school and go the JC route.

"I figured out what I had to do in order to be as good as I needed and wanted to be, said Zynn." This meant a lot of training in the off season. "The thing that I think helped me the most were camps over the summer…specifically USC's."

The big fella also realizes that he needs to continue to try to improve. "I'm working on lower body strength especially," said Zynn.

Coming in from College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, CA., Zynn originally played at South Pasadena HS in Pasadena, CA. before enrolling at the junior college.

Zynn's teammate Domata Peko, brother of former MSU almnus Tupe Peko, currently starring for the Indianapolis Colts, is also on the Spartans radar screen having already received a scholarship offer.
