Since breaking into the starting lineup for the first game of his freshman season, Akron (OH) Hoban offensive lineman Nolan Rumler has been looked at as one of the top 2019 prospects in Ohio.
Rumler, who has helped lead his team to consecutive state titles, still has two seasons of football left to play. He already holds a scholarship list that is approaching 20 offers.
"Michigan State was great and I loved everything about it. I'm actually going back this week for the spring game," Rumler stated. "Their facilities were top-notch, and I loved the campus."
"As far as the coaches, I loved Coach (Mark) Staten and enjoyed my time with him," he added. "I can see myself playing for him, because he's a player's coach."
"I was there for practice, and Coach (Mark) Dantonio also came over to talk with me," he continued. "He made sure I knew I had the offer, and it was good to talk with him. I liked it there very much."
Rumler also enjoyed his time in Columbus with the Buckeye program, and he was at Ohio State this past weekend.
"I was at Ohio State last Saturday, and they have built a great culture," he stressed. "I love the coaches, and spent time talking to Coach Stud (Greg Studrawa). I liked the way they run practice."
"Everything was very fast-paced, and very high-energy," Rumler said. "The facilities were great, and they have the stats to back up all their claims about how successful they are."
"They talked about a potential offer, but said they want us to build a relationship with them first," he noted. "They want me to come down for camp this summer to work with me one-on-one, and I'm thinking of doing that."
His first offer came from Michigan and they have remained high on Rumler's list from the beginning.
"I talk to Coach (Tim) Drevno often, and I will be going to Michigan for the spring game," he said. "I'm still very high on the program."
