Yours truly briefly Sunday night with All-American defensive/tight end Doug Van Dyke (6-5, 245 lbs., 4.8 in the 40, 2.4 GPA/21 ACT) from Marshall, Mich. He is The Insiders' #81 prospect.
Are you still visiting Michigan this weekend?
"No, I can't. We have a playoff game this Saturday. We play at 1:30 Saturday. So I'll visit Michigan after the playoffs are over."
Do you have any other scheduled?
"My visit to Ohio State for Michigan game -- that probably (hopefully!) won't work out either."
I saw some Marshall kids at the Iowa game last Saturday.
"Yeah, Evan Sharpley (Marshall's sophomore quarterback, one of the top five sophs in the state) was there."
Tell us a little about the playoffs.
"We've got the #1 seed. Marshall is Division 4 -- Class BB. Jackson Lumen Christy is probably our number one competition."
