Benzschawel at Two

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Apr 4, 2013

Grafton (Wisc.) junior Beau Benzschawel is a sleeper to know about. At 6'6, 250-lbs, he could project to several positions and has two offers already.

With his 6'6, 250-lb frame and the ability he shows to play multiple positions on tape, Grafton High's Beau Benzschawel is a prospect who could see a rise in his recruitment over the next few months.

"I actually already have two offers," he said, "one from North Dakota and one from Northern Colorado. I'm also being looked at by Wisconsin, Michigan State, Iowa, and Iowa State."

Last season, Benzschawel played tight end and defensive line, but there is another position some schools see him potentially playing in college.

"They've been talking mostly at tight end and actually, offensive line too. They've been talking about building me up."

Many players have gone from tight end to major college and even NFL offensive tackle and Benschawel would be open to that move, saying, "I'd love to. Anywhere I can play really."

This weekend, he will return to Madison, where he hopes to continue the relationship he has with his home state Badgers.

"I'm going to Wisconsin junior day, which is this Saturday. I've visited for games and I've been to camp the past three years. I've really just been talking to some of their recruiting coaches, Coach Strickland, the coach for Southeast Wisconsin. They haven't talked to me about which position they're looking at or what they want to do yet. It's all up in the air."

As it stands, Benzschawel is happy to have the opportunities he has and the early offers have inspired him to continue improving his game.

"It feels really good [to have the offers]. All the hard work pays off. I just have to keep working harder to get the bigger offers I want to get like Wisconsin and schools like that."
