A prospect that college recruiters in the Midwest are talking about is 6-foot-7, 270-pound, offensive lineman Chris Bartula.
Bartula preps at Glenbard (Ill.) North High School and he adds to what is already a talented and deep offensive line class in the Land of Lincoln.
"Ball State and Northern Illinois have offered me a scholarship." Said Bartula. "Illinois, Northwestern and Wisconsin have been calling me on a regular basis.
"My favorites are Illinois, Northwestern, Stanford, Wisconsin and Northern Illinois."
Bartula is a two-year varsity starter. We'll be checking out Chris Bartula in two-weeks when his Glenbard North squad travels to Naperville North.
