More Offers for Wisniewski

With 16 offers from around this country, Stefen Wisniewski talks about his favorites, where the Nittany Lions stand and his plans to make some campus visits this summer.

Last week Stefen Wisniewski added North Carolina to his list of scholarship offers.

"North Carolina has recently offered," said Wisniewski. "They told my coach, and then I talked to one of their coaches [Frank Cignetti]. He said they're really interested in me and they're offering me a scholarship and they hope I can come down sometime to check it out."

Wisniewski plans to take Cignetti up on his invite and unofficially visit Chapel Hill "for a day to check out the campus." Michigan, Boston College, and Georgia Tech are also expected to be among Wisniewski's summer travel plans.

While Wisniewski has yet to step foot on North Carolina's campus, he has heard nothing but good things about the school.

"I hear it's a beautiful campus and it's a program on the rise," said Wisniewski. "[Head coach] John Bunting has been doing a good job and they're getting better and better."

In addition to the Tar Heels, Wisniewski sports offers from Akron, Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Michigan, NC State, Northwestern, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Stanford, Temple, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Although North Carolina is not included among Wisniewski's top four schools, they aren't too far behind.

"I'd say Penn State, Michigan, Boston College, and Stanford right now [are my favorites] with Georgia Tech and North Carolina, not far behind," said Wisniewski.

Wisniewski is the son of Leo Wisniewski and the nephew of Steve Wisniewski, both former Penn State linemen and NFL players.

Although he's mostly being recruited for offensive guard, the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder is receiving some looks at defensive tackle. North Carolina is among the schools recruiting him for guard.

During his junior season at Pittsburgh (Pa.) Central Catholic, Wisniewski earned first team Class AAAA Associated Press All-State, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review "Terrific 25" and All-WPIAL honors for his play on the offensive line. On defense he recorded 64 tackles including ten for losses and six sacks.
