"Penn State is my new leader." Koziol said. "I went to camp at Penn State and I loved it. I really got along well.
"I ran a 4.1 pro-agility at the Penn State camp. Everything just seemed to go very well at their camp. I had a great talk with coach (Ron) Vanderlinden and tight end coach Bill Kenny.
"I'd say that I'm 90% leaning towards Penn State at this time."
Koziol has been offered scholarships by Northwestern, Illinois, Michigan State, Indiana, Boston College, Akron, Toledo, Northern Illinois, Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan.
If Penn State offers Koziol a scholarship look for a verbal commitment. Nittany Lion assistant coach Ron Vanderlinden recruits the Chicago area and he has Chicago ties.
Coach Vandy was the defensive coordinator at Northwestern under Gary Barnett, taking the 'Cats to the 1995 Rose Bowl.
Vanderlinden was responsible for landing Joliet, Illinois running back J.R. Zwierzinski and coach Vandy is very well liked and respected in the Chicago area.
