August 16, 2013Ty Schwab showed off his athleticism at the Boston College camp this summer and the Eagles are anxious to put it to use in the years ahead.
rfBefore camp began at Merritt Island (Fla.), Schwab checked in around 210 pounds. BC defensive coordinator Don Brown wants the Florida prospect to arrive at the Heights around 215, but Schwab's goal is loftier.
"I'm going to try and be 220," Schwab told EagleAction.com.
Just so long as he doesn't sacrifice any speed or quickness, as that's what made him so attractive to the BC staff.
"[Brown] definitely likes me blitzing off the edge and working in space," Schwab said. "He wants me to cover. I'm pretty versatile and athletic. When I went there I ran a 4.6-flat forty and a 4.58 so I was moving. He just loved me as a player. They said there's a shot I can come in because the guy in front of me is a senior and they don't have any freshmen."
Brown and the other coaches were a big reason Schwab chose Boston College. He believes his work ethic is a good match when paired with their persistence and energy.
"Me and coach Brown and some of the other coaches talk all the time," Schwab said. "They know what hard work is and they're going to push everybody to their limit and make sure everybody is the best they can be. We're going to be a good team in a couple of years, if not this year."
Another reason Schwab committed to Boston College? Family.
"My whole family is from Connecticut and my mom's from Massachusetts," he explained. "I lived in Connecticut 'til I was eleven. I've got friends up there in Connecticut, and aunts and uncles. My aunt's family is in Rhode Island."
Given all of those connections and Schwab's excitement over the future it's not surprising when he says his commitment to BC is a solid one. He camped at USF, Maryland, North Carolina and Marshall this summer, in addition to BC, but said there's no doubt where he will sign in February.
Schwab plans to officially visit BC for the Eagles' game against either Florida State or Wake Forest.
