Getting An Early Start

A Midwest offensive lineman that enjoys run and zone blocking, junior Kyle Bosch has the makings of a Big Ten lineman. Already holding offers from Indiana, Iowa and Michigan State and having camped at Wisconsin, Bosch is well on his way to building a solid offer list.

MADISON - Kyle Bosch - a 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle from Wheaton, Ill. - is only going to be a junior at St. Francis High School in the fall but he's compiling a nice list of offers.

Bosch holds offers from Arizona, Indiana, Michigan State, and West Virginia. His latest offer came from Iowa after he went to their football camp last Saturday.

"I played well and they liked what they saw while I was there and they offered me on Monday night," Bosch told Badger Nation.

Although Bosch holds five offers he doesn't have a favorite school yet.

"It's a little too early to announce a favorite," Bosch said. "I have interest in each program that offers me,but I want to be able to see as many campuses as possible. I also want to meet the coaches and see what the school has to offer academically."

A day after he was in Iowa, Bosch was in Madison on Sunday participating in Wisconsin's football camp.

"I performed well at the camp," Bosch said. "I worked with Bob Bostad their offensive line coach. I also talked to my recruiting coach Chris Ash a little bit."

With Bosch performing well at Wisconsin's football camp, will the Badgers be the sixth team to offer him a scholarship?

"I'm going to call them soon to hear what I need to work on," Bosch said. "I'm not sure if they'll offer me. If they liked what they saw at the camp than I think they will offer me."

"I know I need to work on my pass blocking. I've been working a lot and I'm seeing improvements but it's still not where it needs to be."

Although Bosch knows he needs work on his pass blocking he knows what his strengths are, as well.

"I pride myself in the way I play the game with a tenacity and a chip on my shoulder," Bosch said.

Being at Iowa's football camp on Saturday and then at Wisconsin's camp on Sunday Bosch intends to attend more camps this summer.

"I'm going to Michigan State this weekend to attend their camp," Bosch said. "I'll also be attending Michigan's camp and Notre Dame's camp. I'll also be taking a visit to Illinois sometime this summer."

Although his decision isn't coming anytime soon, Bosch knows these factors will play into his commitment.

"I have to be compatible and be able to see eye to eye with the coaches," he said. "Academics will also be important because football ends for everyone at some time and distance isn't really a factor but it would be nice to stay close to home though."
