The Northwestern Wildcats have already landed a Pennsylvania offensive lineman ranked nationally at his position – Upper St. Clair’s Ian Park – in this 2012 recruiting class.
Tuesday night, the purple and white got a little richer, landing a second offensive lineman from the Keystone State.
Connor Mahoney, a 6’4, 270-pound offensive guard from Malvern Preparatory School, has issued an oral declaration to Northwestern, according to national recruiting service Scout.com. In all, Mahoney reached a total of nine verbal offers through his recruiting process, picking up offers from a combination of FBS and FCS programs.
In addition to Northwestern, Mahoney also gained offers from Delaware, Harvard, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Tulane, Villanova and Yale. He also received interest, but no offers, from programs like Michigan State, Nebraska, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers and Stanford.
Scout.com ranked Mahoney as a three-star prospect and the #63 offensive guard in the 2012 recruiting class. Upper St. Clair’s Park, also an offensive guard, is presently ranked #42 in the nation, according to Scout. As it presently stands in the 2012 recruiting class, Northwestern is one of six programs to land two of Scout’s top 65 offensive guards, joining Arkansas, Penn State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Michigan State.
Mahoney, a 2010 1st-team Coaches All Inter-AC selection on the offensive line, helped to pave the way for a Malvern Prep offensive unit which averaged 263.5 yards (177.4 rush, 86.1 pass) and 17.9 points per game. The Friars produced two backs with at least 510 rushing yards and a 940-yard passer, scoring 28 total touchdowns (23 rush, 5 pass).
Malvern Prep finished 6-4 last season, placing second in the Inter-AC to Haverford School.
