Schobert Gaining Interest

Things are picking up for Waukesha (WI) RB Joe Schobert. His main interest has come from in-state, but a few other schools are becoming more interested. Where does Northwestern stand?

Thus far, Joe Schobert has interest coming from Northwestern along with Wisconsin, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, and others. Recently, Northwestern hasn't shown as much interest.

"Not a whole lot (of interest) right now," Schobert said. "They invited me to camp. That's about it."

Recently, Schobert has made recruiting visits at Wisconsin and Central Michigan, and is planning on visiting North Dakota State soon. However, he left the door open to check out a few more schools. If Northwestern begins to show interest again, the running back will make a trip to Evanston.

"If they want me to come out, I'll definitely come out for a visit," he said.

The 6-2, 195-lb running back lives less than two hours away from Northwestern, and has been able to pay attention to the Wildcats. He's been very impressed with what he's seen.

"It's a good school, the (football) program is good, it's in the Big Ten," Schobert said. "I watched them last year, they're excited to watch, good team, had some good games."

Schobert says he's not certain on which summer camps he will attend, and if he will attend Northwestern's camp.

As a junior, Schobert broke out in the Wisconsin D1 championship game. He rushed for 296 yards on 38 carries, and scored two touchdowns. That performance broke the standing record of Wisconsin running back John Clay.

On the entire campaign, Schobert rushed for 2442 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also had eight catches for 200 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
