Lake Forest Academy senior three-star ranked defensive lineman recruit Thomas Schaffer (6-foot-6, 250 pounds) made an official visit last weekend to Stanford.
"The trip was great," Schaffer said. "Everything about it was awesome."
Schaffer has now made official visits to Oregon and Stanford and will make his last planned official visit this weekend to Wisconsin.
Phillips senior three-star ranked defensive end Amir Watts has three official visits in mind and is starting to set up visit dates.
"I'm going to visit Syracuse on Dec. 11th," Watts said. "I'm also looking at a visit to Rutgers and Pitt. I'm thinking Jan. 22nd for Rutgers and then Pitt might be after Syracuse and before Rutgers."
Neuqua Valley junior four star ranked wide receiver Isaiah Robertson (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) is now up to 10 verbal scholarship offers this fall and expect many more offers to follow. Did Robertson ever expect to have all of these offers and attention at this stage of his high school career?
"I knew it would be tough to get these offers," Robertson. "I always hoped it would happen and it's still a kind of a shock. I'm just feeling blessed and humbled by all the attention."
Robertson, who is hoping to make an unofficial visit to Michigan State soon has also been drawing increased interest from Notre Dame, Georgia, Ohio State, Maryland and Penn State.
Morgan Park senior inside linebacker Sean Williams (6-foot-2, 220 pounds) added recent offers from Wyoming and Eastern Michigan. Williams, who has made unofficial visits to both Illinois and Indiana this fall and has remained in steady contact with NIU, Buffalo, Toledo, Bowling Green and North Dakota is considering his latest offer despite the distance from home.
"I'm been thinking pretty hard about going away from home for awhile now," Williams said. "I've been talking to a school like Wyoming and I'm definitely interested in seeing what they have to offer."
Williams has scholarship offers from BGSU, Eastern Michigan, Miami of Ohio, NIU, South Dakota, Toledo and Wyoming.
Wednesday night, Northern Illinois (7-3/5-1) hosted Western Michigan (6-4/5-1) in a nationally-televised game. Most casual fans might not realize is that the mid week MACtion games provide a nice recruiting advantage for NIU and other host schools. Several Class of 2016 recruiting targets are planning to attend tonight's NIU game including Oswego QB Steven Frank. Several kids to watch from the Class of 20127 including Lake Park junior defensive end Jacub Panasiuk will also be in attendance as the mid week games are truly one of the only games in the nation, giving recruits a better chance at visiting without having to compete with other schools playing on Saturdays.
