Football: Episcopal's Strouss commits to Penn

Episcopal Academy's Adam Strouss, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior quarterback and safety, has orally committed to play for Penn.

"As a team, we participated in a four-day camp at Penn over the summer," the 17-year-old said. "Coach [Al] Bagnoli was one of the first coaches to come up to me. He definitely made me feel wanted. And I loved the school, all the coaches, and the campus."

Episcopal Academy's Adam Strouss, a dual-threat quarterback and safety, has committed to play football at Penn.

As a dual-threat QB, Strouss has led the Churchmen to a 3-0 start. He is projected to play defensive back for the Quakers.

"Right now, they have me on their board as a safety," the Malvern resident said. "They like my athleticism and body type."

Strouss, who missed five games last year after suffering a foot injury, was also being recruited by Colgate, Princeton, and Yale.
