Monticello offensive tackle Ryan Tassin signed a National Letter of Intent Wednesday committing to play football at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.

A 6′ 7″, 310 pound center, Tassin was a 2013 All-Conference selection.

He received offers from Henderson and SAU but chose UAM where his father also played football. Tassin’s father, Alan Tassin played on the offensive line while attending UAM in 1994 and 1995, and his mother, Wendy Tassin is a 1996 UAM graduate.

Tassin is the grandson of Jerry and Phyllis Starkey of Monticello; John and Linda Crow of Chatham, La; Lois Lotz of Slidell, La. and Steve Tassin of Metairie, La.
