Better late than never. The state of Illinois is home to the best offensive line prospect to come out of the Land of Lincoln since Tony Pape (Michigan) in Barrington's Dan Doering.
Before yesterday, Doering had written offers from Iowa, Wisconsin and Northwestern and verbal scholarship offers from Notre Dame and Michigan.
Illinois, although late in offering Doering a scholarship should make him priority #1 next season. Landing prospects like Dan Doering is what's going to turn the football program around.
"I wanted to let you know that the University of Illinois was at Barrington High School last week and the following day Dan received a written offer in the mail from them," said Rick Doering, the father of Dan Doering.
"Currently Dan now has written offers from Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Northwestern. He has been told verbally that offers from Michigan and Notre Dame will be arriving in the upcoming months.
"We will keep you posted as more develops."
2004 has the potential to be one of the best years ever in the state of Illinois for PREP FOOTBALL TALENT.
Joliet (Catholic) linebacker Chris Jeske, Skokie (Ill.) Niles West running back Rashard Mendenhall and Barrington offensive lineman Dan Doering are just three of 10 prospects that could be among the "Top 100" prospects in the nation.
