Springfield Central head coach Valdamar Brower confirmed to ESPNBoston.com that running back Sacoy Malone has verbally committed to the University of Maine for the 2012 season, and will sign a National Letter of Intent on February 1.
Malone took an official visit to the Orono, Maine campus last weekend. He gave a commitment to the Black Bears Wednesday night.
Malone was one of the state's leading rushers last fall, carrying 257 times for 2,001 yards and 22 touchdowns as the 10-3 Golden Eagles made it all the way to the Division 1 Western Mass. Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium
