Detroit Cass Tech's Ruben Lile picked up a scholarship offer today, his first one, and it came from…
Lile Rising Fast
Last season, Ruben Lile played free safety and wide receiver for Cass Tech and helped the Technicians reach the state semi-finals. A key returnee to that squad, the 6-3, 200-lb Lile is determined to push them even farther this year, and along the way, attract the interest of college recruiters. That has started happening, as he was recently offered a scholarship by the Western Michigan Broncos. "It felt pretty good to get that first offer," he said. "I really didn't expect it at the time. I'm happy. I'm going to the spring game on April 17th and I'm going to their junior day in two weeks." The Broncos signed a Cass Tech player, offensive lineman John Jackson, and have offered Lile's teammates, safety Brandon Berry and linebacker Laron Taylor. Taylor also holds an offer from Iowa, and Lile is hoping that soon, he too, will have a verbal fro the Hawkeyes. "They want me to come visit the school some time this month and come down for the spring game. I talked to Erik Campbell. He says that he likes me at receiver, but there's another coach that wants me at safety." Lile says Central Michigan has also invited him up for a visit, and he has already been to Bloomington for Indiana's junior day. "I actually liked the school. I like the system they put in on defense and the new coaches they have. They said they wanted me to keep working on things I need to get better at and they're going to keep recruiting me." var VideoMediaID = "908977" var Volume= "0" var MediaDir = "http://video.scout.com/media/"; var VideoURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + ".flv"; var ImageURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + "t.jpg"; var so = new SWFObject ('http://cdn-cms.scout.com/swf/flvplayer.swf','mpl','100%','300','2'); so.addParam ('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.addParam ('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addVariable ('height','300'); so.addVariable ('file',VideoURL); so.addVariable ('image',ImageURL); so.addVariable('volume', Volume); so.addVariable('mute', 'false'); so.addVariable ('backcolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable ('frontcolor','0xFFFFFF'); so.addVariable ('lightcolor','0x00FF00'); so.addVariable ('screencolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable('stretching','stretchfit'); so.addVariable('overstretch', 'true'); so.addVariable ('logo','http://media.scout.com/media/a/_network/mediaplayer/scoutTVlogo.png'); so.addVariable ('showstop','true'); so.write ('player'); #12 Ruben Lile | FS-WR | Detroit (Mich.)
