Dieter Impressing Multiple Schools

Although he does not hold a Gopher offer, one rising prospect in the Midwest is Gehrig Dieter of Washington High School in South Bend, Indiana. Dieter has seen an increase in his recruitment after his impressive play in 7v7 events. The 6-foot-3 athlete took the time to chat with about the progression of his recruitment.

Dieter, a 6-foot-3, 210-pounder out of Indiana is a special athletic talent. In recent 7v7 tournaments he was one of the most successful wide receivers as well as outside linebackers. This athleticism and versatility have helped Dieter earn the interest of some solid schools.

My offers have been all MAC schools but I've been getting a lot more attention since the 7v7 in Pittsburgh," said Dieter who holds five offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. He has also had interest from programs such as the Tennessee Volunteers who visited his school this spring.

Although he has had little contact with the Gophers, it is a program he would like to look at. "I would like to talk to them and see what they are all about because I haven't had a chance to talk to any coach," he said. "But I would love to talk to them."

Rated a three-star on Scout, Dieter is still humble and knows what he has to work on before making the jump to the college level. "I can improve on everything," he said. "Just getting in and out of breaks and just my overall speed," Dieter added.

What does this versatile athlete think he can bring to a college team? "I think I bring a tough football player that can catch everything," he said. "I can help my team win and make plays in big situations," Dieter added.
