Schepis Picks Up Wisconsin Offer

Already regarded as one of Ohio's finest offensive line prospects, Nick Schepis of Walsh Jesuit High School continues to add to his impressive offer list. With Wisconsin now on board, a host of schools in the Big Ten and other conferences are certain to follow. Schepis will be at Ohio State this weekend for their senior camp on Saturday.

With the addition of a Wisconsin offer on Tuesday evening to his scholarship list, Nick Schepis of Walsh Jesuit High School has now picked up six more offers since the combine in Louisville, upping his total to 12 offers in all and making him one of the most sought after of all of the offensive linemen in Ohio.

"They're only taking two linemen this year and they already have a commitment from Oglesby (Josh Oglesby)," said Nick's dad, Tony Schepis. "And now they've offered Nick and one other lineman who has already committed to Iowa. So they're really high on Nick."

In addition to the Wisconsin offer, Schepis has picked up offers from Wake Forest, Bowling Green, Kentucky, Connecticut and Central Michigan during this past week. Prior to the Louisville camp he already had offers from West Virginia, Akron, Miami (Ohio), Duke, Marshall and Cincinnati.

Although Schepis, at 6-3 and 275 pounds, will continue to play tackle at Walsh in his senior season, most of the schools who have offered thus far are looking at Schepis to play inside at either guard or center.

"Nick is probably going to move inside and play guard or center in college. He's still going to play tackle this year just because of his size," said Tony Schepis. "Nick would like to play center actually. He's never snapped in a game before but he's worked on it and he would like to be a center in college. But just about everyone is looking at him at guard or center."

As far as the recruiting process goes, Tony Schepis thinks that his son should have a better idea of where he stands by the end of June. As it looks right now, Schepis will be in Columbus on Saturday for Ohio State's senior camp and then he'll be at North Carolina's camp on June 12.

"He's performed well at the combines and he's hoping to do pretty good at these camps and things should begin to shake out sometime in late June," said Tony Schepis. "He's going to pick another camp or two to go to in June and then we'll go visit a few more schools (unofficially) this summer."

And after that is when Schepis will likely narrow his list down before he makes his final decision.

"Somewhere near the end of July he's going to narrow his list down to three or four schools and we will go from there," said Tony Schepis. "He'll try to pick some good games to go visit (officially) the different schools and he'll make his decision after that. I don't think he'll drag it out through the whole season."

Schepis has a 3.6 GPA and has already scored a 23 on his ACT.
