Steve Paskorz Profile
Pennsylvania linebacker/running back Steve Paskorz (6-2, 220, 4.5) claims to have offers from Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Michigan, Mississippi and Virginia but has no leader. "I'm a bandwagon fan," Paskorz explained.
"I've been in contact with every school in the country, except for six," said Paskorz, of Hampton High School in Allison Park. "I haven't heard from Arizona State, Boise State, Arizona, South Carolina, Missouri or Hawaii. I've gotten something from every other college in the country.
"I don't have any favorites right now. My parents and I are going to sit down and start narrowing down the field by first looking at each school for their academics, second for their football programs and lastly for the campus life. I think tradition is very important also."
So how does Paskorz plan on narrowing it down? "Academics is the most important thing to me. Also, I want to watch game film and see how my position affects the team play overall. Would I be able to make a big contribution on the field or not? I want to know the team's depth and see how many guys they are recruiting at my position."
Paskorz, who is being recruited for both running back and linebacker and insists he is equally good at both spots, said that the Michigan, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Clemson and Notre Dame are coming on the hardest. "I get handwritten letters from all these schools, that are almost like love letters. They also text-message me quite a bit.
"I went to junior day at Michigan and Notre Dame last month," he said. "I was really impressed with both schools. When you go to both schools, the campus just shocks you. They are both so beautiful and just have so much history.
"Michigan offered me when I went up there for junior day (1/27). Coach (Lloyd) Carr came up to me at said they wanted me to come play halfback for them. That was great.
"I also went to Pittsburgh's junior day on February 25. They treated me like royalty there…it was great. They want me to play both offense and defense there. I got a chance to talk with the coaches about the benefits of playing both ways. That was really flattering."
Paskorz said both he and his parents are less concerned about distance than they are about education. "My plan is to commit as early as I can, hopefully before the season if possible," he said.
"I have great size and strength. I'm very aggressive and have great speed. This year I really want to work on my quickness. I want to get quick and agile by doing more speed training."
Paskorz claims a 3.5 core GPA/May 6 first-time SAT.
