11/27/2012 - Penn State center Matt Stankiewitch had a hectic day Monday.

He also was named to the All-Big Ten first team. After meeting with his parents, Stankiewitch, a two-year starter, chose former Penn State players Eddie Johnson and Rich Rosa to represent him. "They're great people, high-character people," he said. "They're Penn Staters. I trust them. They trust in me. They're great guys." Stankiewitch also said he would train with Penn State director of strength and conditioning Craig Fitzgerald and director of athletic training Tim Bream to prepare for the draft. "All year they've wanted players to stay here and train," Stankiewitch said. "They have a good plan, a fantastic plan. These are the best guys in football you could possibly get.

08/10/2012 - Top-five Penn State prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. C Matt Stankiewitch...The veteran member of the offensive line, Stankiewitch is entering his second year as Penn State's starting center. With limited experience last season, he had some hiccups as a junior, but grew into his role and should compete for All-Conference honors as a senior. A Pennsylvania native, Stankiewitch signed with Penn State as a junior in high school and redshirted in 2008 in College Station. He was the off-and-on starter at guard as a freshman in 2009, but was sidelined most of the 2010 season with an illness. Stankiewitch started all 13 games at center as a junior last year (led the team in snaps) and appears on the Rimington Award watch list entering the 2012 season. Considered a better run blocker than in pass protection, he is a tough, gritty player who does a nice job extending off the snap with good hand placement and strong wrists. Stankiewitch is an assignment sound player and looks to eliminate defenders from the play, blocking through the whistle. He has only one year of true starting experience, but does have playing experience at guard and is a team leader. Although better known as "Linebacker U," Penn State has also produced several nasty interior linemen to the next level and Stankiewitch has draftable potential. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
