Chizik Picks Up Commitment #10: Jeremiah Schwartz

It appears that today's contest may have pushed Iowa State over the edge for a runningback/fullback from Florida. Jeremiah Schwartz, a 5-10, 248 pound lumbering manchild pulled the trigger on a pledge to Iowa State, per a picture on CycloneReport

Rivals Info
Scout Info

Schwartz garners just two stars on the Rivals system as a runningback, but Scout lists him as a 3-star player, as well as the #5 fullback in the nation. In 2006, as a junior, he ran for 1,300 yards and 23 touchdowns. His offers are not shabby, including Colorado and Virginia. His schools of interest are nice looking as well, including Florida, Kentucky and Louisville.

Jeremiah runs roughly a 4.8 forty, with a 4.15 short shuttle time. Here's what Scout has to say about him.

Blocking Ability

Tackle-Breaking Ability

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Elusiveness

Schwartz gives great effort and runs very hard between the tackles. For a prospect that is almost 250 pounds he has surprising quickness and great feet. Schwartz has deceptive speed and runs with exceptional power. He is not your typical lumbering fullback. Schwartz has good foot quickness. He runs with great pad level and is just so tough to bring down. Schwartz also excels in the blocking and is a receiving threat out of the backfield.

It remains to be seen where Schwartz could fit into the offense in the future, but he's certainly, at the very least, an interesting talent.
