Zach Zwinak Commits to Penn State

Gimme a throwback fullback and siren WHOOOOOO!!!

In this day and age where national recruits like to hold elaborate press conferences on ESPN where they play watch the shuffling hats, it's refreshing to see a kid who just nonchalantly tells his local newspaper beat reporter, "Oh yeah, I called Penn State and committed today."

He noted that the coaching staff's ability to call the right play at the right time has been a major boon. But perhaps more importantly for (Zach) Zwinak, he no longer has to worry about what school he'll be playing for in 2010. After Friday night's game, he made a call to Penn State to verbally commit.

"It's a great school, great people, great football," Zwinak said. "It's a relief. I can just focus on my team and the season."

Rivals lists Mr. Zwinak as the No. 1 fullback in the nation and the fourth best player in Maryland. In his junior year he rushed 133 times for 1,447 yards and 19 TD.

Here's what you won.
