"Coach Larry Johnson called me today, all I could do is run around think 'Oh, my gosh it's Coach Johnson'. Schwan stated of the surprising call. "He said he was on the road, but he would be by my school soon. He wanted to watch my film and he would call me back.
"I spoke with him tonight and he said he watched my film and he was very impressed," continued Schwan. "He said they want me to visit the last week in January and that shocked me. He said we need to keep you in Pennsylvania. He said he was giving my film to Coach O'Brien and I was blown away by that, that guy is coaching the Patriots."
Schwan's father play on the offensive line at Purdue. his lone remaining grandparent (grandma) lives in Cleveland and being in Central Pennsylvania, the Schwan household is divided in its rooting interest, during the season.
"People out here are kind of born into being Penn State fans," stated Schwan. "My dad of course likes Purdue. We're not diehard fans, but Penn State is one of my dream schools, along with Ohio State. There is such a great tradition at Penn State and it is still one of the top programs in the nation."
Schwan said his family was pretty excited to hear that their son had been contacted by Penn State.
"My mom actually screamed at first, she didn't say too much," laughed Schwan. "My dad was very excited. My neighbor is business partners with Dave Joyner, so he was ecstatic. I'm not going to commit to a visit just yet, I still need to think about everything and discuss it with my parents. Coach Johnson wants to try to do an in-home visit with me on Sunday."
The Big 33 invitee told us in a prior interview about hand delivering his film to Urban Meyer. He is still hoping to hear from the Buckeyes.
"They (Ohio State) are a very good team with a great tradition," Schwan replied. "My grandma lives in Cleveland and that isn't too far from Columbus, so she could see me play. She is the last grandparent that I have. I think it would be cool for her to be able to see me play." Schwan also had an in-home with Connecticut and Coach Paul Pasqualoni and Coach Hank Hughes.
"Coach P. and Coach Hughes were here at the house," he said. "They were here for about an hour and a half. They met my mom for the first time. She really liked them, but she likes all the coaches. She gets attached. Coach P. is very professional, but fun. I'm going there this weekend for my official visit."
Schwan hosted Greg Schiano and Randy Edsall from Rutgers and Maryland respectively. Rutgers also offered Schwan. We will have reaction from Schwan on the new offer and his official visit this weekend.
