Wangler Has Eyes On BCS

Jared Wangler was one of several Michigan players that performed well at the recent New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown. He currently holds one offer and is looking for more.

Warren De La Salle athlete Jared Wangler impressed last week at the New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown. He showed well in coverage, with quick feet and good ball skills.

Wangler, 6-foot-2, 215-pounds, discussed why playing 7on7 football can help him next fall with his high school team.

"This stuff always helps you when you're competing against the best players in the country," Wangler stated. "For me, it's more about competing to win than it is working on individual technique, but that is important too."

"This will help get me ready for next season," he added. "We run mostly all man-to-man concepts, so that gives me the work I need in that area. I'm also in the weight room a lot, doing what I can to make myself a better player."

With one offer to his credit, Wangler is hoping for more in the near future. He is being recruited as an outside linebacker.

"I have an offer from Bowling Green right now," he explained. "I didn't even know they were recruiting me all that hard, and I haven't been talking to them all that much, but they offered me over the phone. It was great to get that offer, because it means the hard work is paying off."

"Indiana is also showing a lot of interest," he continued. "I'm going to be visiting them real soon. Maryland is another school showing a lot of interest, and I'm going to be visiting there next month. I've never been to either school, but I'd love to have offers from both of them and the coaches are very impressive at both programs. I'm also hearing from most of the MAC schools."

Jared Wangler is the son of former Michigan quarterback John Wangler. His older brother, Jack, is a freshman wide receiver with the Wolverines.
