Three star offensive tackle Geoffrey Schwartz (6-7, 305, 5.2) from Pacific Palisades, Calif., had a very busy summer. After school closed out on June 21st, Schwartz got busy working on all of his athletic skills. As soon as school closed he headed to both USC and UCLA football camps. He’s been busy ever since.
Football wasn’t only the sport that Schwartz excels at. He also an outstanding baseball pitcher and was busy with that sport as well. Schwartz played American Legion ball and played briefly for a Connie Mack baseball team. He worked on improving his baseball skills at the Stanford camp.
For most people what Schwartz accomplished this summer would be enough, but Schwartz isn’t your normal athlete. He was even involved in several summer basketball tournaments with a traveling team.
In between all that busy business, Schwartz still had time to have had dinner with Mark Madsen and have breakfast with the Wizard of Westwood himself, John Wooden.
Are you tired yet? Schwartz also took an unofficial visit to Arizona and he liked his visit to Tucson a lot. Just this past Sunday he was at USC’s practice and was impressed by what he saw.
Schwartz has offers for his football skills from Arizona, UCLA, Stanford and Oregon.
Schwartz is planning to take an unofficial visit to Oregon as well.
The thing that has Pac10 schools so interested in Schwartz is he’s a neophyte to the game of football and a diamond in the rough with unlimited potential. That being said Schwartz is still an outstanding blocker pass blocker who didn’t allow a sack as a junior and was a dominating run blocker.
Another amazing thing about Schwartz is he hasn’t spent a lot of time in the weight room since he moves from one sport to another. Once he starts a weightlifting program he’s only going to get bigger, stronger and better. Schwartz did record a very impressive 28-inch vertical jump at the Nike Camp held at USC last May.
Schwartz is planning to take unofficial visits during the season to Stanford, Oregon and Arizona.
