Mike Ware, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound, linebacker from Aurora (Ill) Waubonsie Valley is seeing his stock rise.
The hard hitting linebacker is hearing from most of the Big Ten conference and now he's starting to get hand-written mail.
"Coach (Greg) Mattison at Notre Dame is starting to write letters." Ware said. "I think I'm going to camp at Notre Dame this summer.
Ware will be a three-year starter for B.J. Luke and the Warriors. He was named 1st team all-conference after totaling 110 tackles, 10 sacks, two blocked punts and an intereption in 2002.
"Minnesota, Boston College and Iowa are starting to come on pretty hard as well. Central Michigan is also a school that I like a lot.
My top four right now would be Notre Dame, Iowa, Penn State and Central Michigan."
Ware carries a 3.5 GPA in the classroom.
