Schwartz says that Virginia is recruiting him the hardest. "It seems like they are the most consistent," Schwartz said. "They check in with me all the time."

He doesn't have any official visits scheduled, but he did visit Michigan unofficially in August. "I was really impressed," Schwartz said. "I loved the facilities and the campus. The coaches also seemed really good. They aren't only good coaches, but good people. They really stressed what a great school Michigan is and that even if you take their sports out of the picture they are still one of the best schools in the country."

Schwartz plans to attend the Oregon/Oklahoma game on September 16 to supports his brother (Geoff Schwartz) who plays offensive tackle for the Ducks. "They are doing pretty well," Schwartz said. "They have a really good offense and I like how consistent they seem to be each year."

He also plans to attend the Stanford/USC game on November 4. "I think that they'll bounce back," Schwartz said discussing the Cardinal 0-2 start. "Last year they started poorly and came back and put together a nice win streak. I've met with the coaches and have talked with them and have faith in them. They are smart and know what they are doing."

One school that has really impressed Schwartz this season is Tennessee. "They opened up really well against Cal and played very impressively," Schwartz said. "I think they could really go far this season.

"I follow college football in general and love watching all the games, but I don't think it'll factor into my equation."

He reports a 4.0 GPA and a 29 ACT score.
