Two official visits stand between La Grange Park (Ill.) Nazareth Academy offensive lineman Jack Shutack and a college decision.
“Basically, I’m going to go wherever I feel the people want me the most,” Shutack said. “I want people that want me to succeed. I’m basically just going to go off the vibe of what the coaches feel like, and how they treat me.”
Shutack’s next official visit begins Friday in Piscataway, N.J., where Rutgers hosts approximately 20 offered prospects.
“That’s going to be fun,” Shutack said. “I’ve never been [to New York City]. Being from Chicago, I don’t think it’s going to be a huge shock. But it’s cool to have the chance to go see New York for the first time. I’m excited.”
Shutack hosted Rutgers associate head coach Norries Wilson Wednesday evening on an in-home visit.
“I like how he’s telling the truth,” Shutack said. “He’s not going to beat around the bush. He’s going to give it to you cut and dry.
“…Originally, I just knew [Rutgers] as a good academic school. They just got into the Big Ten. They play in the Big Ten East. I really didn’t know a lot about them, and I’m going on a visit to see how much I like Rutgers. If I do, I don’t know what could happen next.”
“Obviously I like that they play in the SEC,” Shutack said. “I visited there over the summer, and I really liked it down there. I liked the campus. I like the way it felt. I just got a good vibe off of them.”
