GoBlueWolverine spoke Monday evening to the father of Pacific Palisades offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Mitchell was working on a group project with his fellow Palisades Charter School classmates, and GBW will be talking to him today.
Too busy with schoolwork to talk? What's up with that?
"Well, he has a 4.3 grade point average,: Mr. Schwartz told GBW.
This helps explain Mitchell's first two scholarship offers:
"So far it's Stanford and Michigan who offered him this week."
Obviously academics is the upmost priority for Schwartz, but to get a U-M scholarship offer his performance on the field is impressive as well.
Schwartz has had a great past seven days of combine performances. GBW actually first saw Schwartz back at the US Army Combine in January, but it was at the May 7th Socal Scout.com combine where the Southern California beachboy (Pacific Palisades is an exclusive area just up the beach and up the hills from Santa Monica) had an eye-popplng performance:
he measured 6-5.5, 303 lbs., and ra an excellent 5.28 sec. 40 and an equally fine 4.85 sec. shuttle; he also recorded a very good 25 inch vertical jump (click HERE for GBW's weekend story).
With that kind of speed and agility, his father said he was being recruited for:
"Offensive tackle, the left (quick) side."
And right after the Socal combine came his Michigan scholarship offer. Then this past weekend he went up toe the Stanford Nike Camp and did well once again -- soon after came his Stanford offer.
We'll find out from Mitchell tonight what the recruiting scene looks like to him ... reports are that he received his Michigan offer very favorably.
