As was speculated even before Sean Kugler formally got the UTEP football head coaching job, North Allegheny High School Mack Leftwich has switched his committment from Stephen F. Austin to UTEP. He is teammates with Kugler's son Pat, a Michigan committment.
Leftwich will join a crowded true freshman class of quarterbacks, as grayshirt Jacob Larson and Andress committ Ryan Metz will be in the same class. UTEP, however, doesn't have a junior-to-be quarterback and went through this past fall with only four quarterbacks. They normally have six.
