Montour lineman George Padezanin committed Saturday to Lehigh, recruited to the Patriot League school by a former WPIAL football standout.

Lehigh’s recruiting coordinator is Anthony DiMichele, a 2007 Sto-Rox graduate.

Padezanin, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound tackle, earned all-conference honors on both sides of the football this past fall. He listed more than a dozen Division I offers.

Lehigh gave Padezanin one of his first offers last April. His list grew to include Akron, Albany, Brown, Bucknell, Colgate, Cornell, Dartmouth, Delaware State, Holy Cross, Lafayette, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Richmond, Robert Morris, St. Francis and Yale.

Padezanin joins North Allegheny defensive end Sam Sheridan, who committed to Lehigh in December.

The Mountain Hawks went 4-7 overall last season, 3-3 in the Patriot League under first-year coach Tom Gilmore.
