The Tale

Schwan was the lone visitor at Penn State this weekend, and made the most of his trip. He finally received the offer that he had hoped for, and committed thereafter.

Schwan was recruited by Larry Johnson, who hopes to feature the defensive end in his DL rotation.

Outlook

Slightly (ok, moderately) undersized, Schwan fills the spot left vacant by another Harrisburg defensive end. Schwan has a high motor, and was able to push kids around in high school, but will definitely need to put some weight on before going up against 300+ pound Wisconsin linemen.

Iowa fans were excited ($) about Schwan's potential, but the dream to play for nearby Penn State was too much. He held out for the offer, and chose the Nittany Lions. He has been relatively unknown on the trail, due to a series of injuries that forced him to miss his entire junior season. His senior season, though, was a different story, as he helped lead Central Dauphin to a state title was named to the Pennsylvania All-State team.

Though it likely didn't factor into his recruitment, Schwan is a teammate of top 2013 target Zayd Issah, an all-over athlete that will be one to watch next year.

Schwan's commitment puts the Class of 2012 at 19 members, which totals 84 scholarship players.

Welcome to Penn State, Evan!
