Kona Schwenke is headed to BYU

Kona Schwenke, a defensive end from (Kahuku High School (Kahuku, Hawaii), has committed to head coach Bronco Mendenhall and the BYU Cougars.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Schwenke has also received scholarship offers from Colorado, Oregon State, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah, Wyoming, Hawaii and Washington.

ESPN's Craig Haubert said of the news, "This weekend BYU continued to add to their big and fairly strong 2010 class with a commitment from one of the Hawaii's top prospects in Kona Schwenke."

"We had a chance to see Schwenke workout in person recently and he is a kid with nice upside. He has a tall and lean frame and will need to add bulk once he gets into BYU's weight program and he needs to also improve his strength. On film he gives flashes of playing the run well, but will need to work on that phase of his game at the college level. He is a little further along as a pass rusher and has some of the raw tools to be help rush the passer early on."

"Schwenke is a nice pick-up for BYU and if they can red-shirt him and give him a little time to keep developing physically and as a player he could be a real nice fit down the road for the Cougars."
