Grand Haven's John Potter is gaining more and more interest as the season goes on. The big legged…
Potter Kicking His Way Onto Radar
This week, at least one school took notice, as the big legged kicker received his first scholarship offer.
"I was offered a scholarship from Western Michigan last weekend after their game," Potter reported, adding, "it is a great opportunity, but I'm going to wait to see who else might be interested before commiting."
There are a number of other schools after the 6'2, 190-lb Potter (who also starts at wide receiver and free safety) and right now, he says he wants to keep his options open.
"I don't want to rule anyone out," Potter said, "I'm interested in Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern and Notre Dame," he continued.
An outstanding student, he also has drawn interest from Ivy League schools like Dartmouth as well as Toledo and Grand Valley State.
The Wolverines, who already have a verbal from a Grand Haven player in OT Dann O'Neill, have kept in contact with Potter following three consecutive years he has attended their kicking camp and that is likely one place he will stop at before making a decision.
"I'll probably go up to Western again," he said, "and hopefully Michigan. My dad spoke to Coach Striping at UM who told him he was going to give my coach (Mike Farley) a call this week and offered to have us come to an upcoming game."
So far this season, Potter is six for seven on field goals, including one from 50 yards and two from 42. Through four games, he also had touchbacks on 18 of 24 kickoffs. On offense, he has two receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown and snared two interceptions on defense.
