This upcoming season, junior quarterback Max Bortenschlager will be leading one of the Hoosier’s State top high school football programs in Indianapolis (IN.) Cathedral High School. He has been training and working to perfect his craft this off-season and took some time out for visits. One of those trips were to Minnesota this past weekend to watch their spring game, where he fell in love with every second of his experience there.
“I loved it,” Bortenschlager told GopherDigest. “My mom went there way back when so, I have been there and walked around, but that was my first football visit. I was super impressed with everything. I did sat down with (Recruiting Coordinator) Coach (Billy) Glasscock for a while and he said they like me on film, but don’t offer quarterbacks unless they’ve seen them throw live. They will come watch me throw at school soon. Coach Kill also stopped in and said the same thing.”
The talented and confident 6-2, 185-pound Bortenschlager, who sits as the No. 38 ranked quarterback in the nation and a three star recruit by Scout, saw his interest definitely spike after this Gopher visit and had a few parts of his trip stand out to him.
“I am very interested in them,” said Bortenschlager. “They are right at the top of my list. I was super impressed and loved it. It was a great visit and I hope to get back sometime in the near future.”
“Other than the actual game, they gave me a personal tour right after the spring game and took me into the press box, which was really cool, but I also really enjoyed talking with Coach Glasscock. He was straight forward and honest and I liked that a lot about him. Those were probably my favorite things.”
