College of Dupage (Ill.) defensive tackle Jack Ziltz (6-3, 285), took a couple of unofficial visits during the week, seeing games at two schools known for their BCS-Buster status.
Ziltz was in DeKalb earlier in the week, visiting Northern Illinois and then visited Boise State over the weekend.
"Neither of those schools have offered, but I still have one game left which is our Bowl Game this weekend to finish the season strong and get my film out. I'm waiting on transcripts to go through with a couple other schools. But hopefully an offer comes through soon," said Ziltz.
Boise State left a good impression on Ziltz.
“Boise State is nice,” said Ziltz. “Their facilities and the stadium were really cool. Their game atmosphere was awesome and it was loud. All the people are nice. I talked with Coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski and met with some of the other coaches.”
Ziltz had previously visited Indiana and Purdue.
“My uncle was a defensive captain at Purdue,” said Ziltz.
Ziltz spent the fall of 2012 at Akron, but left Akron to transfer to DuPage, where he’s finishing his redshirt freshman season.
Because he’s a bounceback, he has to get his AA.
“I’m a May graduate but I’ll have three years to play,” said Ziltz. “Since I transferred from Akron, I have to get my associates degree and I’ll have that in May.”
Ziltz is keeping all of his options open, and knows he could come back next fall and play and leave in December.
"I know I am a May graduate, and will not be able to participate in spring ball, but I will be working very hard this offseason to make sure I am ready when I get on a campus in May," said Ziltz.
This weekend, Dupage will play in a bowl game at Syracuse.
