Top 2010 JUCO tackle nabs first two offers

He's already considered one of the top JUCO players in the country and Palomar OT Brice Schwab (6-8, 320) is already hauling in offers and taking calls from schools across the country. caught up with the huge offensive lineman and he updated us on things including what he thinks he does best out on the field...

"I feel like I run-blocker better than anything right now," Schwab told "When you're out there and it's a running play, it's head-to-head and 'survival of the fittest' and I just love being aggressive and winning those battles.

"What I'm really working hard on right now is my pass-blocking. I think I'm alright at it, but I want to be a lot better at it, so I've been doing a lot of squats, a lot of speed drills and footwork drills and then agility stuff."

The Pennsylvania native headed west after graduating from Moniteau High School (West Sunbury) because of the competition in the southern California JUCO ranks.

"I was a non-qualifier and I was going to go D-2, but after talking things over and seeing Palomar I decided to come out to California to compete against the best," Schwab recalled.

And compete he did.

Schwab, who claims a 405 pound bench and a 5.3 forty time, started every game at right tackle for the Comets and he earned All-League and All-Region honors for his efforts.

Now, teams from across the country are after the mammoth offensive line prospect and he has two early offers already under his belt.

"Arizona and Arkansas both offered me," Schwab said. "It's really exciting to know that my work has paid off and I have a chance to go D-1.

"I had sorta given up on that dream and now it's becoming a reality."

Schwab has also been hearing from Wisconsin, Illinios, Oregon, Florida State and South Carolina as well.

"South Carolina and Florida State told my coaches they are sending offers to me pretty soon," Schwab said. "Wisconsin is coming on strong too, but they haven't made an offer and Illinois is after me pretty hard too.

"I haven't talked to a lot of coaches, they are mainly talking to my coaches because it's not a time they can call me because of the NCAA, but I'll be calling some of them real soon."

Schwab said he doesn't plan to make an early decision although he said he wants to have things done after some visits this fall.

He's on pace to finish his two-year degree in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
