Wisniewski Making, Changing Fall Plans

Pittsburgh interior O-lineman Stefan Wisniewski was a on-day Michigan camper this past summer, and had an excellent day. Recently he had reported that he had a final four schools, would make his official visits in the fall, and graduate in December. Last night he told GoBlueWolverine that some of those plans are the same, some have progressed -- dates have been set -- and some have changed.

Pa. OG Stefen Wisniewski (6-3, 280) from Pittsburgh Central Catholic came into the Michigan Camp this past June with an offer already in hand, and he did nothing to disappoint people. He and U-M commitment Dave Molk were the top O-linemen in attendance (with the top D-liners being Ryan Van Bergen, Josh Brent and the tall, fast and thin Nicardo Golding).

The recruiting process has advanced rather quickly for Wisniewski, with the big man settling on a top four by mid-summer. He reiterated his finalists to GoBlueWolverine: "It's Michigan, Penn State, BC (Boston College) and North Carolina."

Wisniewski had made plans to gradutate in December and enter school in January, so he'd wanted to make his official visits in the fall. Is that still the case?

"I still intend to make my official visits in the fall. Plans aren't final yet (he'll work those out when coaches can call on Sept 1st.) but I have dates picked out. It's North Carolina on the weekend of Sept. 9, and BC the next weekend, September 16th. Penn State will be the weekend of the Michigan game (October 14th). And I'll visit Michigan the weekend of the Michigan State game (October 7th)."

Does he had a favorite going into the visits? "Nah, the official visits will tell the story for me."

And is he still on track to graduate in December? "No. That has changed. I've found out I don't have enough credits to graduate early from Central Catholic. So I'll graduate in the spring with my class."

Wisniewski is a strong student with a 1270 SAT score under his belt.

One final thing: U-M fans keep in the backs of their minds that Stefan's father played defensive line for Penn State ... still, Stefan truly seems to have an open mind about where he will attend college.
