Three star tight end Jake Marwede has a number of high major offers including those from Duke, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Arkansas among others.
Last week he ventured to Cameron Indoor Stadium to watch the Blue Devils’ basketball team take on Virginia. It was part of a whirlwind tour of schools the highly rated prospect has undertaken in order to get an idea of how he’d like to narrow his list.
“I’ve visited, in order, Illinois, Northwestern, Wake Forest, Duke, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee. My next two visits will be to Penn State and Ohio State.”
Marwede is being recruited by one of the newest coaching additions to the Blue Devil coaching staff, Coach Jim Bridge.
“[From the visit] I really liked the Duke coaches and the players who were there. I also liked the facilities. And, obviously, the academics at Duke.”
As a junior Marwede played tight end for Wilmette (Ill.) Loyola Academy and helped the team to the 8A state championship in Illinois - the largest classification in the state. He recorded nine touchdowns along the way.
