Benjamin OL Garrett Donaldson commits to Fordham 

By Jeff Greer

Benjamin offensive tackle Garrett Donaldson had some FBS offers, but he chose Vince Lombardi’s alma mater instead.

Donaldson (6-4, 242) verbally committed to Fordham University on Wednesday, choosing the Rams over Marshall and Buffalo. He announced his decision on Twitter.

His commitment to play tackle at Fordham comes 76 years after Lombardi graduated from the New York City school. Lombardi was a 5-foot-8, 180-pound lineman.

Donaldson is the rock of a strong Benjamin offensive line, which returns four starters from the 2012 season, a campaign in which the Bucs won the Southeastern Football Conference title and finished 11-1.
