Strongsville OH, is home to Dan Pribula. The 6-6 315 pound offensive lineman is getting a lot of attention from schools and has come away with some offers. His Dad spoke to me last night about Dan's sitation.
"Dan has offers from Pitt, Maryland, Louisville, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Bolwing Green and Michigan State. Tennessee, Michigan, Stanford, Notre Dame and Duke have been showing a lot of interest in Dan as well." Dan is hoping these schools also offer.
I asked Dan Sr. what was going to be important to Dan when he decides. "Dan is an excellent student. He has a 3.5 and is an honors student. Dan wants to get the best academic education he can find and an opportunity to play football while he is getting that education." Dan Sr. said this would likely be the most important factor in his decision.
I also asked him if that meant schools like Notre Dame, Northwestern and Duke would get looked at pretty hard. "Yeah, Notre Dame and Northwestern as well as Duke will be high on his list. Stanford is a fantastic education but it might be too far away. I know Notre Dame and Northwestern will be some of the top schools that Dan is interested in.
Dan hasn't attended camps and probably won't. He has just finished his track season where he throws shot and discus. Dan Sr. said that he and Dan will likely take some summer trips to some of the closer schools and take a look at them. At this time, they haven't sat down and decided where they are going.
Comments. I think Notre Dame has an excellent shot here. I do know that Notre Dame is very interested in Dan and Dan seems to have a big interest in the Irish as well. I am going to bet he is a ND kid as well. His Dad was very nice. I think ND will be in the final 2 if they offer.
