Upper St. Clair TE/DE Jack Schwaba issues oral declaration to Northwestern

Written by: on Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

The Northwestern Wildcats have already had a banner 2012 recruiting class thus far, receiving declarations from six three-star prospects and a pair of two-star prospects.

Tuesday evening, the purple and white received a declaration from their seventh three-star prospect in their 2012 recruiting class – and fourth such prospect from Pennsylvania.

Jack Schwaba, a 6’5, 235-pound tight end/defensive end for Upper St. Clair High School, issued an oral declaration to Northwestern Tuesday, according to national recruiting service Scout.com.  Schwaba is the second Upper St. Clair athlete to issue a declaration to Northwestern – offensive guard Ian Park gave a declaration to the Wildcats May 5.

Even though none of Northwestern’s members of its class of 2012 can officially sign letters of intent until February 2012, the purple and white’s class is already ranked #56 by Scout.com.  Including Schwaba and Park, NW’s other three-star prospects from Pennsylvania include Lancaster Catholic OT Adam DePietro and Malvern Preparatory School OG Connor Mahoney.

Schwaba is ranked as the #29 tight end in the 2012 recruiting class, according to Scout.  Schwaba is one of four Pennsylvania prospects ranked among Scout’s top 30 tight end prospects in the nation, including Archbishop Wood’s Colin Thompson (#3), Council Rock South’s P.J. Gallo (#20) and Shaler Area’s J.P. Holtz (#24).

In his recruiting process, Schwaba garnered six offers from FBS programs.  In addition to Northwestern, Schwaba also had offers from Akron, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Toledo, as well as interest (but no offers) from programs like Illinois, Kent State, Maryland, Michigan State, Penn State, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Primarily utilized as a blocker in Upper St. Clair’s single-wing offense, Schwaba helped to pave the way for a Panther offensive arsenal which averaged 299.8 yards (216.5 rush, 83.3 pass) and 24 points per game, scoring 32 total touchdowns (25 rushing, seven passing).  USC’s offensive arsenal included five backs with between 210 and 1,090 rushing yards and a 910+-yard passer.

Defensively, Schwaba contributed 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a deflected pass, playing part in a Panther defensive unit (including reserves) which allowed an average of 14.8 points per game, holding four of 11 opponents to 14 points or less, with two shutouts.

Upper St. Clair, which competes in the Great Southern Conference, finished 8-3 in 2010, reaching the WPIAL AAAA quarterfinals opposite North Hills, falling to the Indians, 16-14.
