ArmySports.com:  Have you already thought about what you want to study at West Point?
Bryan Vavruska:  They (West Point) were fourth in country in engineering behind a few of Ivy League schools, that is definitely an option.

ArmySports.com:  What position are you being recruited at?
Bryan Vavruska:  Free Safety.

ArmySports.com:  Are you doing anything special on LOI Day?
Bryan Vavruska:  I'm not sure. They sent me my letter.  I'm not sure if we are doing something at school or with Corey McKeon (LB teammate at Naperville, HS who is a verbal to Nebraska) …we might sign together, but I'm not sure.

ArmySports.com:  Did you get a chance to chat and hangout with other recruits during your official visit?
Bryan Vavruska:  They brought about 10 of us in the first weekend of official visits. 
We hung out with our hosts.  We had a chance to meet with some of the players that we would be playing with next year.  I hung out
with Zac Maodus from Texas, who is big and quick (I remember him from one of the summer football camp I attended) and we had a chance to chat. 
I'm really excited!  My dad is really excited. He brought West Point to my attention when I was a sophomore, even before football was in the picture. He thought that being a West Point Cadet would be a good fit, so it worked out that they wanted me for football as well.

Bryan will be a direct appointment to West Point.
