Rasmussen Has Big Ten Interest

Brookfield Central (Wisc.) has another Division-1 prospect in class of 2014 offensive tackle Luke Rasmussen, who has a big frame and interest from nearly every Big Ten school.

Meet Luke Rasmussen, the next prospect from Brookfield Central, a school that has regularly produced college talent over the last few years. The offensive tackle and junior to be, has a nice frame and a year of varsity under his belt now.

"I'm 6'8, maybe 6'7, and my weight is right around 242," he said. "Last year, I played left tackle. My coaches were really helpful getting me in the flow of being a sophomore, and my first year of varsity coming in to start. Last year's seniors did a big job helping me learn the blocking schemes and get the nasty in me."

Rasmussen did not go to any camps this summer, and he is just starting to put his film together to send to schools, but that has not stopped colleges from coming to find him.

"The Badgers invited me to a game last year, Michigan State sent me bunch of camp stuff and came to the school. Michigan came to our school and said I should come to their camp, the same with Stanford, Illinois, Northwestern, Minnesota I believe came by. A lot of Big Ten schools came by the school. They said they're going to come down to see how I play."

Last season, Rasmussen did get to take in a college game.

"The Badgers invited me to the game against Penn State at Madison. It was a lot of fun. We got to go into the locker room afterwards. That was the game where they won their division of the Big Ten, and they were going wild in the locker room."

It was there that Rasmussen met many of the players, including one of Brookfield Central's alums.

"I talked to Russell Wilson and Jeff Wilson, who went to Brookfield Central, and I met few offensive linemen, cause Chikwe Obasih (teammate and Badger commit), knows lot of Badgers. He took me around with him. He helped me meet a few players. It was a lot of fun. We also had dinner before and few of the coaches came by and said hello and all that good stuff."

If the Badgers invite him this year, Rasmussen says he will definitely try his best to make it, as it is a school he has been watching for as long as he can remember.

"I followed the Badgers for my entire life basically. Both my parents went to Madison, so they helped me watch Badger games growing up."

That doesn't mean he is closing himself off to other schools though.

"Northwestern, I like them because first, they're close to home so my parents could drive down. Also, it's a great academic school that's definitely on my list to hear more from. Michigan and Michigan State, because they're fairly close, would be nice. Most Big Ten schools it would be nice to hear from and then a few big schools like Stanford, for example, would be awesome."
