Offer from one of the TEs "Target" schools

One of Indiana's hidden talents picks up his first FBS level offer from an instate school.

Gibson Southern (IN) TE Wes Obermeier was ecstatic at the news that he had received his first FBS level offer on Monday, especially since the offer came from Ball State.

"I'm so excited about it." Obermeier said. "Ball State has been one of my target schools for years."

Obermeier, who picked up the offer from Coach Mike Neu and staff after a successful showing at this past Friday night's Ball State camp, raved about what he has seen out of the staff and from the program in Muncie.

"The Ball State football program, in my opinion, is one of the most attractive programs in the country," Obermeier said. "They have top notch facilities, great history, and an even brighter future. The coaching staff has been super welcoming and proactive in my recruitment. I first met Coach (Joey) Lynch at an in school visit that really planted the seed for Ball State football. Since then I have met so many guys on their staff and within the program including Coach Neu. He has this program going in the right direction no doubt. You can tell that these guys know the ins and out of the game just by talking to them. I look forward to getting to know them all better."

For Obermeier, a 6-6 235 matchup nightmare at TE, it his third offer overall (joining Indiana State and Butler) and might not be his last as schools like Harvard, Columbia, Western Kentucky, Miami (OH), Southern Illinois, Eastern Michigan and Bowling Green have taken notice. A summer filled with camps will also help raise his stock in schools eyes.

"As of now I will be at Miami OH,Indiana, WKU, SIU, Bowling Green, and SE Missouri," Obermeier said of his summer schedule.

Obermeier, who has played primarily at WR in high school, brings an intriguing mix of athleticism and size to whatever program is lucky enough to gain his services.

"I'm blessed with great genetics as I'm 6'6" 235," Obermeier said. "At tight end, I feel I can create some serious match up issues where I'm too big and strong for corners but to fast and athletic for linebackers. I try to mold my game to look like Rob Gronkowski's. I just want to be a key piece in whatever offense I end up playing in."
