Wheaton Warrenville South junior kicker/wide receiver Jack Olsen (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) is an IHSA state record-setting kicker for the Tigers and head coach Ron Muhitch. Olsen, who is holding an early scholarship offer from Miami (OH), continues to draw attention from multiple Power Five-level college football programs. Does that make him act like a big timer? Hardly. Olsen is as low key and humble as any kid you'll find in the Class of 2020.
Olsen also made teamed up with his fellow Tigers at the recently held Franklin Middle School charity dodgeball tournament which raised funds for several worthy charities. He took a few minutes to recap his record breaking 2018 season, his latest recruiting news along with giving up a very early preview of the 2019 Wheaton Warrenville South Tigers.
Is it just me or does it seem like West Aurora's Denver Warren (6-foot-3, 300 pounds), a junior three star-ranked defensive tackle, has been on the recruiting radar screen for several years?
In some regards Warren, who added his first scholarship offer before the start of his sophomore season at West Aurora, has indeed been on the front of the recruiting world for a long time. Warren gave Michigan his verbal commitment last year but has since backed off of it. He has returned to the open market.
Warren takes a few minutes to talk recruiting as he participated in the recently held Franklin Middle School Dodgeball tournament in Wheaton. He discusses his recruiting travels, the latest offers and what's in store for him and the West Aurora Blackhawks for the upcoming 2019 season.
Wheaton North junior OLB Xander Mueller (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) has continued to see his overall recruiting stock steadily grow as we begin to inch closer to the spring evaluation period.
Mueller, who is now holding double digit scholarship offers, is also showing up on more on Power Five school recruiting lists. He has also been hitting the recruiting visit circuit over the past few months.
Mueller, who took part in the seventh annual Franklin Middle School charity Dodgeball tournament with his Falcon teammates, took a few minutes to fill us in on his steady ascent on the offer list. He also looks ahead to the 2019 Wheaton North season.
