Reschke Gets Special Attention

Birmingham Brother Rice (MI) 2013 LB Jon Reschke recaps his Michigan State visit, where he was shown something of a red carpet, and looks ahead to possible visits. He also talked about the rush of schools that contacted him last week.

Michigan State is one of two offers Jon Reschke currently has (the other being Toledo), and the 6'2, 223-lb junior linebacker visited the Spartans right away opening week, and saw their victory over Youngstown State.

"It was great," he said. "I went up there and I walked around the stadium and saw the players and the atmosphere was great; just so many Spartan fans coming together as one."

The Spartans made it clear that the offer was legitimate and that Reschke is one of their top targets in the 2013 class.

"When I got there, I went down on the field with a couple other guys and I got pulled aside and I talked to Coach Salem and Coach Tressel and then Coach Dantonio came out and I actually got brought over to him, because I guess he really wanted to talk to me and we stood in the end zone and we talked. He said he really wants me. They really want me to be a Spartan."

Other schools have made Reschke a priority too, maybe not with scholarship offers yet, but by contacting him as soon as the contact period opened up last week. He says the mailmen working his block and school have been busy.

"I got a ton of mail sent to the school and a lot sent to my house. I got mail from Alabama, Michigan State, Virginia, Nebraska, Stanford, they want to see my transcripts, Iowa, Akron, Michigan, the school that's really been picking it up is Penn State, they sent me a couple hand written letters and are really excited about me and also schools like Notre Dame and Oregon. I've gotten a ton of mail."

Reschke's Brother Rice squad plays on Saturdays quite a bit, so unofficial visits are harder for him than other prospects, but he does have a couple schools he plans to see.

"Well, I expect to go to the Michigan versus Notre Dame game. I also plan to make it to a Notre Dame home game. I don't know if my schedule will allow it, but Penn State really wants me out there and I want to make it if I can."
