Fisher visits the heart of Big Ten country

Jimbo Fisher traveled all the way to Cincinnati, Ohio in search of landing a young quarterback to guide his high-octane offense in the future. <br><br> That search took him to St. Xavier High School where he found 6-6, 235 pound Rob Schoenhoft.

Not long after Fisher evaluated Schoenhoft he offered him a scholarship knowing it would be tough to lure him all the way to Baton Rouge for a couple of reasons.

First and foremost, Baton Rouge is a long ways from Cincinnati and secondly, the nation's No. 1 signal caller Ryan Perrilloux is in LSU's backyard much like Schoenhoft is to Ohio State.

Does LSU have a chance with the top rated passer from Big 10 country?

"It is just too far away from home and I've heard some things about Perrilloux wanting to stay close to home," Schoenhoft told Tiger Rag. "He is kind of in the same boat as me with Ohio State. I know they brought in 2 quarterbacks last year and I'm not afraid of the competition but I want to put myself in the best position to play early."

The standout signal caller has researched the 22 schools that have offered him a scholarship and he has narrowed his list of choices to four schools with a commitment coming soon.

"The big ones are Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Notre Dame," he said. I do not know which one it will be but I plan on committing at the Elite 11 camp that starts July 21 in California."
