One of Pennsylvania's most-recruited running backs recently participated in a 7v7 passing camp at Penn State this past weekend and left a great impression on the Penn State coaching staff. Patrick Garwo, a 2019 running back out of Conwell-Egan High School in Pennsylvania, has seen his recruitment blow up since the end of his sophomore campaign. Garwo currently holds seven FBS offers from Temple, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Syracuse, Wisconsin and Army. Garwo was among several players who tested for the Penn State coaches before the start of the 7v7 passing camp. Garwo says he performed well in all of the testing drills.
"I had a workout with them before the camp and they tested me in several agility drills," Garwo said after the camp. "The coaches said they are impressed with me, so they have some interest." Garwo went up against a good number of running backs and came on top with the best testing numbers. "I had the best overall score of all of the running backs," Garwo revealed. "They (the Penn State coaches) were impressed with how explosive I am. Coach (James) Franklin was telling my coaches other things they liked about me but I had already left because I had to attend a family reunion. I should hear more about what the coaches think this week."
Garwo visited Penn State during their Blue-White spring game and talked about his experience.
"The football atmosphere is great. When I came for the spring game (Blue-White game), the fans were great. Also, it's big time football and I hope I can get to Penn State again to learn more about the academics and talk more with the coaches."
Cleezy's extra points: Garwo attended Penn State's Lion Strong 7v7 Passing Camp this past weekend with his high school team. Garwo made plenty of catches and made defensive plays throughout the tournament. Garwo says his high school team has several 7v7 tournaments coming up in the next few weeks and that'll cut into his time to take visits. In July, he has plans to visit North Carolina, Duke and West Virginia. North Carolina has already offered him.
