Full RideB/R VideoMarch 1, 2012

Adam Breneman is the most sought-after tight end in the Class of 2013. 

He boasts over 30 scholarship offers, including Ohio State, Penn State, Alabama, Michigan State, Stanford, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, Auburn and South Carolina.

Breneman tweeted the college football world that the big decision is on its way:

I am now ready to make my decision. I will be announcing my commitment on March 9th at 7 pm in the Cedar Cliff HS gym. Open to the public...

I will not be making anymore comments regarding a decision until then. I really appreciate everyone's support during this process!

While Breneman did not tweet out his shortlist, The Patriot-News is reporting that it is down to Penn State, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Maryland.

When Full Ride talked to Breneman in late January, it appeared that he was far from making a decision. From the looks of it, someone has told Breneman that there is only one place for the star tight end.  

Breneman visited Penn State the weekend of Feb. 18 and Ohio State this past Monday, Feb. 27. With those two visits in the books, Breneman feels that he has seen enough to make the biggest decision of his life. 

If we were handicapping this race, we would make Penn State and Ohio State the favorites to land the most coveted tight end in the nation, with a slight nod to Breneman staying home to play for the Nittany Lions.  

The 6'5", 220-pound tight end from Cedar Cliffs High School in Camp Hill, Penn. caught 72 passes for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, earning a second straight All-State team selection.

Breneman also tells Full Ride that he models his game after Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek. While Celek is a good comparison, we saw a lot of two-time Pro Bowler Todd Heap when analyzing Breneman's tape.

The consensus No. 1-ranked tight end in the class will play in the 2013 Under Armour All-American game.
