Harrisburg High School two-way lineman Brandon Ware currently holds two scholarship offers, but will…
Nittany Lions Grab Ware
When we last spoke with Brandon Ware about the possibility of receiving a Penn State offer this weekend all he wanted to know is where he would have to sign. On Sunday the 6-foot-4, 340-pound defensive tackle from Harrisburg, Pa., was extended a written offer from the Nittany Lion coaching staff and quickly accepted it on the spot, as expected. "Coach (Larry) Johnson and I watched some film of the defensive line and I was just really hyped to play and that's when he told me they were offering me a scholarship to play for Penn State," Ware explained. "I was blown away when he told me. He told me he wanted me to think about it for a day and let him know by Sunday. I wanted to just tell him I already had my mind made up then, but I did what he asked and took a day." "I actually just left Coach Joe Paterno's house a while ago and committed while he and I were talking," Ware said. "He talked to us as a group about Penn State as a school and football program and then he and I sat down one on one. He's actually a really funny guy to talk with and said that with the way they rotate their defensive tackles I'd have an opportunity to play early there." "I'm just really happy right now. This is where I wanted to be from the start and now I'm here. I've just been chilling with the defensive linemen getting to know them already and am ready to go." Ware also held offers from North Carolina Central and Temple. As a senior, he registered 35 tackles, 15 of which came for a loss and eight sacks. He also forced a fumble on his way to earning first-team All-State honors. He will be playing in the Big 33 game.
