Wisconsin OL Interested in Irish

Valders, Wisconsin offensive lineman Ryan Schulz will be a three-year varsity starter in 2002. Ryan's stock is on the rise and he gives an early list of his favorites.

"I don't have any scholarship offers yet," said offensive lineman Ryan Schulz. "I'm keeping my options open right now. I'm hearing from a lot of schools.

"My favorites are Michigan, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Northwestern and Northern Illinois."

Schulz, a 6-foot-4, 250-pounder from Valders, Wisconsin will be a three-year varsity starter in 2002.

Valders head coach Wade Rickmeir had this to say about his three-year starter and captain.

"Ryan (Schulz) is the best lineman in our area, hands down." Rickmeir said.

"He'll be a three-year starter on the varsity. Ryan is so athletic that we even toyed with the idea of using him as a tight end.

"He's explosive. He throws the shot about 53 feet. I feel that Ryan can play on either side of the ball at the next level.

"Ryan is a great kid on and off the field and he comes from an athletic family. He's going to be a successful young man in college."

Schulz also letters in track and basketball. He carries a 3.2 GPA in the classroom and scored 21 on his ACT.
