GoBlueWolverine Magazine received word from the father of offensive lineman Dan Doering from Barrington, Ill. High School that they will be in Ann Arbor this weekend. "Dan, my wife and I are planning to attend the Junior Day on Sunday," Rick Doering said in an e-mail to GBW. "If you happen to see us please say hi."
The State of Illinois is loaded with talent this year and Doering is one of the best. Considered by many to be the best lineman out of the state since Michigan's own Tony Pape, Doering claims offers from Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Wisconsin. He visited Iowa unofficially the weekend of Feb. 14-15 along with mom, dad, and brother Tyler.
Doering is a huge visitor, literally. Standing 6-7 and weighing in at 290 pounds Doering plays on the offensive line at Barrington and projects to do the same in college. Some of his many personal achievements include Mid-Suburban All Conference, Daily Herald All Area, Chicago Tribune 1st Team All State, Champaign News Gazette 1st Team All State, Illinois Coaches Association 1st Team All State, and the USA Today Top 10 Juniors List. He's been a starter since his sophomore year.
