Schultz on the Irish
Tight end Dalton Schultz of South Jordan (Utah) Bingham was named one of the top ten players yesterday [March 2] at the NLA 7on7 tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada by Scout.com. Schultz had four touchdowns on the day, and Team Utah has taken home the championship three of the last five years. Today, Team Utah will compete for their 4th championship. Schultz was offered by Notre Dame last week. "I got a call from my football coach telling me to call Coach Booker," Schultz said. "I was hoping it was going to be an offer because he had come to see me out in Utah the week before. I like Coach Booker. He was telling me I fit in with what they do at Notre Dame and I can compete at the highest level there." Schultz says he's familiar with what Notre Dame has to offer. "Notre Dame has so much tradition," he said. "You get the most money out of a degree when you go there because of the football program and academics it offers. They have a great past line of tight ends as well." The 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end recently picked up his 15th offer when Utah State offered this weekend. Schultz has yet to eliminate any schools from his list or choose any favorites. "I don't have any favorites right now," he said. "I want to keep my options open. I would say Washington, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Nebraska, Stanford and Utah are recruiting me the hardest right now." When Schultz does decide on a school, academics will be his first priority. "Location won't really play a factor," he said. "I'll be looking at academics first and football second. I want a place where I'm comfortable and where I like the coaching staff." Other than a Nike football camp planned for the spring, Schultz is unsure of what his future looks like. "I'm not really sure what I'm doing this spring and summer. I will take all of my official visits in the fall for sure. I've thought of a few ones that I may take, but I'm not sure yet. I really don't want to say." Schultz said. Schultz is a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 2 tight end in 2014.
