In the past three seasons, no tight end recruit has earned a five-star rating by ESPN RecruitingNation.

Adam Breneman is the first to break that streak.

When RecruitingNation released its early look at the top 100 prospects in the class of 2013 last week, the Cedar Cliff junior was one of 26 athletes to earn the coveted honor. But it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering how well Breneman has played.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pounder caught 72 passes for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns this season and was selected to the ESPNHS Underclass All-American team. Breneman helped Cedar Cliff advance to the district quarterfinals, where the Colts fell to eventual state champ Central Dauphin.

But for as good as he was in the receiving game, he might have been an even better blocker -- a source of pride for the junior who has close to 30 scholarship offers.

So what makes this stellar tight end so good? It’s time to Get Familiar with Adam Breneman.

Three local stars headline ESPNHS Underclass All-American team

December, 23, 2011
Three players from Pennsylvania earned spots on the ESPNHS Underclass Football All-American team this morning.

Cedar Cliff junior Adam Breneman made the team as a tight end. According to the list...

"This big target (6-5, 225) caught 72 passes for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. He's got offers from the likes of Stanford, Notre Dame, Miami, Alabama, Florida State, Michigan and South Carolina."

North Allegheny junior Patrick Kugler, who also earned a spot on the ESPNHS All-American team as a third-teamer, made the list as an underclassman. From the list...

"Kugler definitely has the bloodlines to succeed in the trenches, as his father, Sean, is the offensive line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Patrick's play this season was key to North Allegheny reaching the Class AAAA state semifinals and being ranked among the nation's top teams."

Central Valley junior Robert Foster made the squad as a kick returner. Foster is also a wide receiver and defensive back and made the ESPNHS Pennsylvania Preseason All-State team as a defensive standout earlier this season. From the list...

"One of the nation's top receivers in the Class of 2013, Foster caught 37 passes for 584 yards and 12 touchdowns. But he was especially dangerous on returns -- his 70-yard kickoff return set up the game-winning touchdown against Hopewell (Aliquippa, Pa.) on ESPNU."
