Stadler is a 6-foot-6, 300 pound offensive lineman who coach Buzzo says "moves his feet well in the box and, for a 16-year-old, plays with a good pad-level." Trying to get around to these schools will be a long haul, but Buzzo does not believe that location will be a determining factor.
"It's not. Initially it was, but now he is pretty much looking at going to as many schools as he can go to and try to find out what the actual best fit for him is. Location will be something that plays into it, but will it be a factor? Absolutely not. Like Michigan, he talked to Michigan a couple of times, and he fits in well with their offense. If that is the best fit for him, that is where he is going to go."
Buzzo believes that with the success of Liberty to have highly-recruited players recently, Stadler is learning the process very well.
"I think he is more learning from what I learned, and I've learned a good bit. He's the first one that has had the first one that has this many offers, but but people ahead of him have gone through it and he's been able to talk to them and see them go through it. He's probably more hungry because he wanted it that bad.
