After months of mulling over offers from over 25 schools, Langhorne (Pa.) Neshaminy defensive lineman Tom McEowen (6-4, 270, 4.9) has narrowed his choices down to two schools. The athletic lineman could make a decision by the end of the month.
Now the magical question: What does McEowen like about these two institutions?
Penn State: Ever since I was little I have liked them. Penn State football is a big deal around here. Its a great place and I felt at home there, it was really comfortable. I like the scheme they play; I can play the three-technique there.
Florida: Im being recruited by Coach [Greg] Mattison and Coach [Urban] Meyer. Coach Meyer is the new big deal. I love how Coach Mattison makes me feel when he talks about how I could fit in their system. I cant wait to go down there and see everything.
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 SE PA SOL Golden 11 Junior honors.
