Schwaba Visits Syracuse

Upper Saint Clair High School tight end Jack Schwaba made the trip from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Syracuse this past weekend to check out spring practice and get a feel for the atmosphere at the school and it sounds like another successful step forward and an effort to get him into the fold for the Orange.

Jack Schwaba traveled to Syracuse this past weekend and the tight end talked to us about some things that really stood out to him on his visit.

"I went up to catch a practice at Syracuse this weekend and it was a good time," Schwaba stated. "I drove up on Friday and got there early, so I had the chance to tour the campus, meet someone from academics and then meet with Coach (Doug) Marrone who is a very knowledgeable coach. I think he's going to do a great job up there and lead them in the right direction. He's a very calm man, he's not that guy that's going to blast his players. I definitely feel like his players respect and love him and that really jumped out to me about him."

"Ben Barrett and I hung out and he was a cool guy," Schwaba added. "I got to talk with Sean Hickey who is a tackle up there from Pittsburgh, so I got a slice of home and there was another quarterback from Boston who was up there that I talked to."

"It was really great up there. Syracuse is a great academic school, they're getting new facilities for next season and it's an unbelievable campus. I like the young and energetic coaching staff and also have the ability to play early high on my list of priorities and see that opportunity at Syracuse."

As a junior, Schwaba caught five passes for 60 yards and two touchdowns in an extremely run-heavy offense for the Panthers.
