---Canisius High School offensive guard Corey Madlock became the first member of the University at Buffalo’s 2012 recruiting class today when he gave the Bulls a verbal commitmen.
The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Madlock also drew interest from Syracuse and Bowling Green but his first offer came from the Bulls.
"Me being from Buffalo, I'd like to give something back to the city and show that the area has great athletes, not just Texas and Florida,'' Madlock said. "My parents will be able to see the games and everything, too."
Madlock played both guard and tackle as well as defensive tackle as a junior for Canisius and registered 28 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
