2017 Kent State Football Recruiting: DT Zayin West commits to the Golden Flashes

Kent State lands its first defensive lineman recruit on Sunday evening.

Whatever Kent State is pitching, recruits are buying it. Zayin West is the latest recruit to commit to Kent State, their fourth commit in just over a week.

Kent State was his first reported offer back in March, and they are the only FBS program to offer.

As a junior, West was named 1st Team All-Conference while playing offensive line and 2nd team All-Conference for his play at defensive tackle.

Despite being a successful high school player on both sides of the ball, I’d expect West to line up at defensive tackle with Kent State. He has the makings of a solid pass rusher and could develop into a nice role player with the Golden Flashes. The Kent State coaching staff has proven it is capable of developing under-the-radar recruits on the defensive side of the football into some of the top players in the conference.
