Recruit Roundup: Class of 2006 Update

Get a rundown of how Penn State's Class of 2006 members performed this weekend on the gridiron, including prospects like Brett Brackett, Abe Koroma and Tom McEowen, each of whom helped pick up big wins for their squads.

Brett Brackett: 6-foot-6, 235 pound, 4.7 second quarterback, Lawrenceville, N.J. (Lawrence High)

Brackett, who many are calling the premier overall player in the Colonial Valley Conference, brought his team's record to 6-0 with a 14-10 nailbiting victory over Hamilton. With ten seconds left, Brackett tossed an eight yard touchdown to cap off an 86 yard drive and a victory.

As Bracket told The News, "This is probably the greatest win in my four years here," said Brackett.

With the win, the Cardinals are in good position to earn a home game in the first round of the Central Jersey Group IV playoffs next month.

Tom McEowen: 6-foot-4, 280 pound, 4.9 second defensive tackle, Langhorne, Pa. (Neshaminy HS)

McEowen's Neshaminy team moved to 7-1 on the year with a dominant 41-13 win over North Penn. McEowen had an impressive game, with 11 tackles and a sack.

McEowen continues to lead a dominating defense that has only surrendered 26 points in their last four games.

Currently he is third on the team in tackles and leads the squad in sacks with three.

Doug Klopacz: 6-foot-3, 260 pound, 4.8 second lineman, Montvale, N.J. (St. Joseph Regional)

Klopacz helped his St. Joe's team rebound from their first loss the previous week and move their record to 6-1 on the year with a 48-20 win over Passaic on the road.

Klopacz continues to see time at defensive end, a shift from his normal tight end position and has ten tackles on the season. He has led a defensive unit that has three shutouts on the season and has not surrendered more than 24 points in a single game.

Ollie Ogbu: 6-foot-3, 320 pound, 4.9 second defensive tackle, New Berlin, N.Y. (Milford Academy)

Ogbu's Milford Academy improved to 8-0 on the year with another impressive victory. This time they beat Dartmouth's Junior Varsity team 28-17 on the road.

Ogbu pulled down five tackles. Milford will face Princeton's Junior Varsity squad next.

Abe Koroma: 6-foot-3, 280 pound, 4.9 second defensive tackle, Hershey, Pa. (Milton Hershey)

Koroma led another impressive defensive performance, shutting down Scotland 42-6 and keeping them to one touchdown. Scotland has yet to win a game all season at 0-7.

Milton Hershey improved their record to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in conference play. Koroma had seven tackles in the clash.

We are working on getting updates on Aaron Maybin, Eric Latimore and Chris Bell.
