McEowen Visit Update

Penn State played host to a number of prospects over the weekend, its second junior day of 2005. One key visitor was a highly touted defensive tackle from the Keystone State. Did he receive the offer that he was expecting?

Langhorne (Pa.) Neshaminy defensive tackle Tom McEowen, 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, made the trek to University Saturday. McEowen was expecting a written scholarship offer; did he get what he was looking for?

“They told me I should be receiving the written offer this week,” McEowen said.

McEowen received an early offer from Rutgers, since then he has garnered offers from Northwestern and Boston College. The Nittany Lions appear to be on the brink of becoming the fourth school to put an offer in McEowen’s hands. How was the trip to State College?

“I had a very good time, practice was great, it was very intense,” McEowen said.

What was the highlight of McEowen’s visit?

“Watching practice had to be the highlight of the trip, everyone was into it,” McEowen said.

What’s next on the agenda for McEowen?

“I’m thinking about a trip to Maryland,” McEowen said. “I would like to get to a spring practice at Boston College.”

What are your thoughts about Penn State?

“I like them, we’ll see if I get the official offer and go from there,” McEowen said.

In 2004, McEowen tallied 89 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, five sacks and two forced fumbles. He earned first team All-League as a sophomore/junior, Courier-Times Golden first team, and Southeastern PA Suburban-One League Golden 11 Junior honors.
