|Adam Bertke - Marion High School - Maria Stein, OH|
Hearing from Michigan: One of the coaches, I forget which one, came to school back in May and talked with me, but that's about it. He just gave me a camp invitation and said they were looking at me.
Interest in Michigan: Absolutely. At this point, anybody who is interested in me I am definitely keeping them in mind.
Dream school right now: I would say definitely a Big Ten school. Maybe Ohio St. or Michigan St.
Why OSU or MSU over UofM?: Well they have been showing more interest in me than Michigan. I also grew up liking Ohio State and I went to their camps and I liked their campus from what I saw.
Ohio St.'s new offense: Well last year my football team was a big running team with the power-I, but we are switching to the spread this year so yea, I think Ohio St. is still a good option.
This kid sounds pretty home grown but you never know. Coach Hoke has shown the ability to pluck top-level talent from Ohio and if Adam becomes one of the highly rated signal callers, I'm sure Michigan will be in the picture. I think a lot of these Ohio kids like the idea of playing for Ohio St. but the reality is that the college level spread employed by Urban Meyer is tailored to very specific types of players. Some kids who want to become a Buckeye won't ever get the chance, instead they can come to Michigan and beat Ohio for 4 years.
