    He currently favors tOSU big over Iowa, ND, NE and Wisky and will be at tOSU's summer camp

    Iowa seems to be recruiting him the hardest

    This kid is a fucking animal with a big time heart.and character. I have seen him play quite few times over the last couple of years. The battles he had had with MAC rival St. Henry are classic examples of everything that is great w/HS football. Tressel could do alot worse than give this kid a shot just for his attitude. He has just amde a commecial for Saint John's School that is pretty funny as well. (I'm pretty sure it him anyways)

    He enjoyed tOSU camp and mentioned that Doc Tress told him they offer FB's late (which could explain why they are also waiting on Clapp). No suprise but tOSU is the favorite.

    "I'd say Ohio State is my favorite. And Iowa and Notre Dame are pretty close."

    He rushed for 2127 yards and scored 31 touchdowns during his junior season. Shumaker averaged 7.9 yards per carry playing both fullback and tailback.

    I just got back from a wedding in Delphos, and some guys up there told me that Tressel is still very interested in Matt Shumaker. They are definitely recruiting him for defense, so the coaches at St. John's are plann9ng to make sure he gets plenty of action on that side of the ball this fall.

    Those are great numbers for a linebacker.

    Shumaker states he doesn't think the top schools on his list will offer until later in the year. He's still listing the same favorites.

    Even though he is an Ohio kid I would take Clapp over Shumacker most definitely.

    If the Bucks can't find a schollie for him, come on down to Miami!

    StoRMinBrutus Great 2 B A Buckeyes !!!

    This kid has some pretty good numbers on both offense and defense and he will be a good one. There have been alot of rumblings about the runningback situation and I remembered early on that Doc Tressel was interested in Matt. Has there been any talk between the coaches and Matt?

    I know the FB's won't be considered til after this saturdays AA game but one can never have too many valuable FB's to open up holes for Ohio State. Makes a huge difference IMO.

    There is some talk that Matt might walk-on at Ohio State. Great news, if true, as he is a kid who might see some action down the road.

    This is very good news!!! We need hard chargers like Matt to walk-on and then get schollies when they start at FB someday:biggrin:
