Michael Strauss Profile

2010 quarterback prospect, Michael Strauss, graced a number of schools with his presence on last week while he was on Spring Break. "Basically, I went on a week long college tour," the talented gun-slinger from out of Gulliver Prep told "I started off at Tulane, and then I went to Alabama, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Bowling Green, and Akron. So it was a pretty long week for me."

"I went up to Vanderbilt on Wednesday," the Sunshine State prospect continued. "I had a chance to take a full tour of the campus. They have a really nice campus. Everything is within walking distance. We actually went to the top of the parking garage, and I got to see the whole campus from up top."

While Strauss was touring the campus, he was able to get an up close look at the athletic facilities. And after seeing what the Dores had to offer, the Miami native had nothing but great things to say… "They have some very nice athletic facilities," he said. "Their football stadium is really nice. I like their weight room and their locker rooms too. Overall, they really have some nice looking facilities."

While Michael was on campus, he had a chance to spend some time with the coaching staff. "I had a chance to talk with the coaches," he said. "They all seemed to be really nice people. I really got a good vibe from them while I was up there."

Michael did not pick up a scholarship offer from Vanderbilt while he was on his visit. However, Coach Johnson and Company certainly did not rule out the possibilities of him landing one from them in the near future. "The coaches are coming to watch me this spring," Strauss said. "It'll either be Coach Kiser or Coach Kitchens. They want to evaluate me some more, and then they'll go from there. So we'll see what happens."

Although Michael did not land an offer from the Dores, he still enjoyed his time in Nashville. He is still highly interested in Vanderbilt, and in fact, has them listed as one of his personal favorites. "Their academics speak for themselves," he said. "Vandy would definitely be a good place to get a degree from. There is life after football, and they will definitely prepare you for it." will continue to keep track of this talented prospect from out of the 2010 recruiting class, so stay tuned for much more…
