Schwenke flew to Utah Saturday morning to commit to Mendenhall in person, the web site reported.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder was impressive at the Nike Camp in Palo Alto, Calif., earlier this year. His performance prompted recruiting analyst Jeremy Crabtree to write on SI.com: "Coaches are starting to whisper 4-star defensive end Kona Schwenke ... might be the best (2010 football recruit in Hawaii) of all."
Schwenke reportedly also had scholarship offers from Utah, Hawaii, Washington, Colorado, Oregon State, UNLV, San Diego State and Wyoming.
