The Cincinnati area has produced some great offensive linemen over the years. Last year Aaron Brown and Connor Smith were two of the Nation’s most heavily recruited players. This season Cincinnati Anderson’s massive lineman Mark Wetterer is hearing from a multitude of college football programs.

Mark Wetterer, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive lineman from Anderson High in Cincinnati, Ohio has racked up an impressive offer list.

“Recruiting has been really exciting,” Wetterer said. “I have offers from Maryland, Connecticut, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Toledo and Akron.”

“I am also really interested in Ohio State, Clemson, and Michigan State. I really like those schools a lot and they have been staying really close to me in the recruiting process.”

Wetterer stars at tackle for Anderson, but some schools have talked to him about moving to the interior in college.

“Most of the coaches are probably saying I am going to move inside to play either guard or center,” Wetterer began to explain. “I had never really snapped before, but when they started talking to me about it I went and practiced it. I was actually really good at it.”

“I think that I am really good at pass blocking. I practice that a lot with my brother. I really like to watch Ohio State’s linemen, because of their line coach (Jim Bollman). They always seem to use the right technique.”

Wetterer did not have the opportunity to go to any team camps this summer, but he did take a tour of two of the schools that have extended him an offer.

“I did not get to go tot any camps because of some personal family issues, but I have been staying home and working out,” Wetterer informed.

“I did get to go out and visit West Virginia. I really like West Virginia a lot. The facilities and the coaches were very nice. It’s a small town that seems to be centered around the school, and the fans and coaches are real down to earth there.”

“I have also visited Cincinnati, and I really like their coaches. They also have some nice new facilities. I am working on setting up visits to see Maryland and Connecticut this summer.”

The Scout.com three-star prospect is most likely going to take his time with the recruiting process and seek out all of his available options.

“If the right offer comes along I would definitely think about committing,” Wetterer said. “If not, then I will go through the season, make my official visits, and decide from there.”
