Svetina's On the Map
6-foot-2, 220 pound outside linebacker Mike Svetina has spent his off-season improving his tackling, mainly using his hands more. It's that constant need for improvement that has led Svetina to 8 offers. Here's how the rising senior breaks down a few of them. Akron: "They're investing a lot into the program right now. They're definitely serious about football there." Ohio: "They're pretty strong and always on top of the MAC. And they went to a bowl game last year which is exciting." Miami (Oh): "I had a chance to visit and really liked it. They have tradition there. The campus was beautiful and you have a good feeling when you're down there." Air Force: "They're a military school. On of my family friends plays there and he enjoys it." Syracuse: "I haven't been there before, but from what I hear, it's very nice. The campus is nice, and to be in the middle of all of the sports there would be very exciting." He also holds offers from Toledo, Ball State and Bowling Green and has also spiked the interest in Boston College, Cincinnati and Ohio State. As for his summer plans, Svetina will be going to camp at Ohio State, Cincinnati, Boston College and maybe Northwestern. The rising senior is hoping that once the camps are over, he'll be ready to make his decision. "I want to commit before the start of the school year, so hopefully by the end the summer so I don't have to worry about it senior year and have a better senior experience." And what are the things that the he's looking for in his perfect school? "First and foremost is if I'll get a great education. It has to be somewhere I can succeed academically because you can't play football forever. Then I'll look at location. It could be far away but hopefully it will be close so that my family can come and see the games. Then the quality of the program and if they're winning games."
