FB Matt Shumaker of Delphos (OH) St. John's put up some quality marks last month at Columbus Nike Camp. The small-school standout recently updated us on his status.

Fullback Matt Shumaker of Delphos (Oh.) St. John's was one of the many participants at Nike Camp in Columbus, and he came away with a good showing as he measured 6-0 1/2, 229 pounds, ran a 4.63, posted a 30.4 vertical, and ran a 4.21 shuttle.

"I kind of surprised myself down there, but I shouldn't have. I was working hard to make a good showing," he said.

What's been going on recruiting-wise for Matt?

"Not much really," he said. "I went to Notre Dame for junior day.

"I had not really heard from them, then they ask me to come over for the spring game and junior day. I was really impressed with what I saw."

So far, the schools that have been in to see Shumaker are Purdue, Bowling Green, Toledo, Ohio U., Miami (OH), and Army.

"Most of them are recruiting me as a fullback but some want me as a linebacker," he said.

Where will he be camping this summer?

"I'm trying to work out something with Iowa," he said. "I'll definitely be going to the Purdue, Notre Dame, Bowling Green, and Ohio State."
