UNC, Wisconsin offer Hausmann
6-foot-5, 235-pound sophomore Jake Hausmann has blown up on the recruiting scene. The Moeller (Ohio) tight end holds well over a dozen offers and recently added two more coming out of the ACC and Big Ten. "North Carolina and Wisconsin have offered me," said Hausmann. "They were a bit of a surprise. I have talked to Wisconsin before. I called one of their coaches and they said they loved my film and could fit their offense well. North Carolina was definitely a shock because I have never talked to them before. I called coach (Seth) Littrell, their tight end coach. I've talked to him when he was at Indiana. They both use their tight end similarly to the way I have been used. I am very interested in both schools." Hausmann hasn't been on either campus yet, but is hoping to get there soon. "I am trying to set up a visit to Wisconsin. I would definitely like to visit North Carolina. I really like both schools," said Hausmann. As for where the Tar Heels and Badgers rank amongst his other offers, he says they're right in the thick of things. "Everyone is about even now. There are a few that stick out, but everyone is fair game," he said. The tight end says that continuing to add such prestigious offers has been exciting. "It's awesome. It's great to know I can play for all of these big time colleges," he said. Don't expect a commitment anytime soon from the rising junior. He plans on taking some visits before making any decisions. "I really just need to get around to as many schools as possible before I start narrowing down my list," said Hausmann. While Hausmann doesn't know when he'll make his decision, he has been thinking about what he's looking for in a school. "I really look for a strong academic reputation, how that school uses the tight end, a good comfort level with coaches and players and that tradition of the school as well as the football program. I would like to say distance won't affect me; but, it is definitely something I consider," said Hausmann. Hausmann also holds offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Ohio State, Virginia, Florida State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Kentucky, Boston College, Michigan, Tennessee and Notre Dame.
