The first high school verbal of the year is Orland Park Sandburg (IL) wide receiver Tony Stramaglia. The 6'2, 185-lb Stramaglia had interest from other schools such as Purdue, Western Michigan and Ball State, but GVSU was his only offer to this point.
His father Don played wide receiver for Grand Valley.
At 6'5, 300-lbs, Wheat could play on either side of the ball, but was playing defensive line for the Spartans. A redshirt freshman this season, Wheat should have three years of eligibility left.
We will have interviews with both Stramglia and Wheat up in the near future.
