Ohio State continued a recent flurry of offers, when they notified Palatine (ILL) Fremd offensive…
Decision Soon For Bobek?
Jeff Bobek knows what it takes to play football in the Big Ten. A former Iowa Hawkeye, he knew he had something special in his son Brian Bobek, a center at Palatine Fremd. Brian's hard work was validated in recent days with his first two offers, from Ball State and Ohio State. The early offer from the Buckeyes was appreciated by the family, because they gave Brian such a hard look. "Ohio State took time to evaluate Brian's attributes in detail as a player and a person," Mr. Bobek said. "They watched his film the closest of any school." The Buckeyes also have plenty to offer Brian and that is something the elder Bobek is quite aware of. "Ohio State would be a great choice for many reasons," he explained. "The coaching staff, academics, facilities, national prestige, etc." There are many schools still showing interest, including Michigan State and Notre Dame, who signed a Fremd lineman, Christian Lombard last year. The Bobeks said they are not looking to drag the process out and rack up a monstrous offer list. They simply want to find the best place for Brian to spend four years and that process may not take much longer. "Brian is open only to schools that have been actively recruiting him, and possibly Iowa, because a decision could come by the end of March." var VideoMediaID = "759926" var VideoStillImageID = "780811" var MediaDir = "http://video.scout.com/media/"; var VideoURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + ".flv"; var ImageURL = MediaDir + "image/" + parseInt( VideoStillImageID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoStillImageID + ".jpg"; var so = new SWFObject ('http://cdn-cms.scout.com/swf/flvplayer.swf','mpl','440','360','8'); so.addParam ('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.addParam ('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addVariable ('height','360'); so.addVariable ('width','440'); so.addVariable ('file',VideoURL); so.addVariable ('image',ImageURL); so.addVariable ('backcolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable ('frontcolor','0xFFFFFF'); so.addVariable ('lightcolor','0x00FF00'); so.addVariable ('screencolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable ('logo','http://media.scout.com/media/a/_network/mediaplayer/scoutTVlogo.png'); so.addVariable ('showstop','true'); so.write ('player');
