Offensive lineman Nolan Rumler has been a starter at Akron Hoban since the first game of his freshman season, and the top 2019 prospect has continued to get better with each game.
Rumler is not only one of Ohio's top sophomores, but he is also one of the highest rated 2019 offensive linemen in the entire Midwest. He is a great drive blocker, but is also technically sound in pass protection.
College coaches are well aware of Rumler, and he is closing in on 20 scholarship offers. He has had Michigan high on his list since receiving a Wolverine offer as a freshman.
"Of the newer offers, I would say Michigan State impressed me and I'm going to visit there at the end of the month," Rumler stated. "I've talked to the coaches before and they want me to come to campus. They're a hard-nosed program and I'm interested."
"I don't have any other visits scheduled right now, but I do want to see Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio State, even though Ohio State has not offered yet," he added. "I've talked to Coach (Ryan) Day from Ohio State when he was in the school, but it was just to say hello."
"Michigan is still way up there for me, and I spoke with Coach (Tim) Drevno about a week ago," he continued. "I will be back there eventually, probably the spring game or spring practice."
Even though still only a sophomore, Rumler has a definite time frame in mind for making his decision.
"I want to be committed before my senior season begins," he stressed. "I don't know exactly when, but I want it out of the way before my last year."
"My career has gone so great, with two state championships and personal awards," he admitted. "I just want to keep winning, and building on the memories I've made with all my great teammates."
