Doug Van Dyke, a 6-foot-6, 245-pound, defensive end, from Marshall, Michigan is among the top prospects in the Midwest.
Van Dyke is the younger brother of former Michigan State and current Seattle Seahawks quarterback Ryan Van Dyke.
"My brother has really helped me out in my recruiting." Van Dyke said. "The best advice he gave me was telling me not too commit early.
"LSU, Michigan, Purdue, Michigan State, Penn State, Ohio State, Nebraska and Notre Dame have all offered me a scholarship.
"I've narrowed it down to Michigan, Purdue, Ohio State and Nebraska. Michigan and Purdue are my leaders.
"I'm going to take some visits after the season and I'll make a decision after that."
Van Dyke will be a four-year varsity starter at the defensive end position and he's played tight end during his freshman and sophomore seasons as well.
He had 18 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and five pass deflections as a junior. In addition to his defensive end position, Van Dyke will also play offensive tackle in 2002.
