Q&A: Carmel DL Cole Brevard explains why he picked Penn State

By

Indiana’s top high school football prospect in the 2020 graduating class is off the board. Carmel defensive tackle Cole Brevard, a four-star recruit according to 247sports.com, made his decision to commit to Penn State last week while on an unofficial visit for the Nittany Lions’ spring game.

I caught up with the 6-3, 305-pound Brevard to discuss his decision:

Question: What was it about Penn State that appealed to you the most?

Answer: “The alumni base is the largest in the world and I love the way Coach Spence (Sean Spencer), the defensive line coach, trains with the D-line, making them one of the best defensive lines in the country. And they’ve been a personal favorite of mine for a while.”

Q: What other schools were you strongly considering:

A: “Indiana and Wisconsin.”

Q: What made you decide now? Obviously have a lot of offers and choices. Did you plan on committing on the visit?

A: “I was leaning toward Penn State earlier before my commitment, but after some prayer and conversations with my family, that’s when I knew Penn State is the school I have to attend.”

Q: Through the recruiting process, what did they say they liked most about you as a player?

A: “They said they love my get off (at the line of scrimmage), how I am athletic for a nose tackle and my relentless effort to get to the ball.”

Q: Did you enjoy the recruiting process? Will you continue to visit other schools or consider it closed?

A: “I really enjoyed this recruiting process and I will take more visits to Penn State, but I am committed.”

Brevard picked Penn State over Indiana, Wisconsin and a collection of offers that also included Purdue, Clemson, Florida State, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Tennessee and others.
