Quarterback Gets Michigan Offer

We confirmed this morning that a frequent quarterback-visitor to Michigan over the past few years now has a Michigan scholarship offer!

We will have an interview with Robby himself, hopefully today when he returns from school. But for now:

We have confirmed with the home that a Michigan scholarship offer has been given to:

Rob Schoenhoft from Cincinnati, Ohio, St. Xavier.

Mrs. Schoenhoft, Robby's mother, told us, "Yes, he did receive a Michigan scholarship offer this past weekend! He's gotten about five more offers since the Nike camp (note: see his earlier offers below). I wasn't there, but I hear he did pretty well there. Robby will call you when he gets home tonight. He's lifting after school today so he'll be home kind've late."

Rob was one of GoBlueWolverine's top three performers at last month's OSU Nike Camp, after which he told us in an interview:

"I measured 6-5 1/2, and weighed 232 or 233 lbs. I ran a 4.88 40, but I pulled a hip muscle in the first heat, so my 40 times were slow ... and I couldn't do my best in the agility drills either."

Well, 4.88 isn't bad for a guy your size. Did you do a shuttle and vertical jump?

"I had a 29 inch vertical. I didn't do a shuttle because of my hip."

Robby, we've seen you at the Michigan Camp for the past three years now. Are you going to make it a fourth this summer?

"Yes, I'll be at the Michigan Camp again this summer."

Any others?

"Michigan's, Michigan State's, Notre Dame's ... maybe Ohio State's."

Has Michigan been the team you've followed most?

"They've been my favorite team for the past few years. I've been around Michigan the most, having been there for camp the last three years. And I went to the Ohio State game last fall too, and to a game the fall before."

So would Michigan be your favorite if they offered you?

"They'd be up there. I know they have Chad Henne coming in this fall. So I need to talk to Coach Loeffler about that, and to Coach Herrmann too. But Michigan will be up there."

Note: Schoenhoft is a perfect example of how the spring combines can quickly boost a player from a 'Sleeper' to a 'Star'. As a junior his stats were humble: 63 of 171 for 888 yards. But Robby has obviously been maturing and improving rapidly!

When we talked right after the OSU Nike Rob had offers from: MSU, Maryland, Indiana, Duke, Cincinnati. We'll see how much that has grown.
