Wheaton (Ill.) St. Francis class of 2013 offensive lineman Kyle Bosch has several college game day visits planned this fall. On Saturday he was in Ann Arbor to see Michigan host Notre Dame in the first night game in Michigan Stadium history.
"It was probably one of the coolest game day experiences I ever had a chance to witness in my whole life," Bosch said. "I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the whole stadium and liked how the coaching staff rallied the whole team at the end. They made a lot of mistakes in the first half, but I really admired the fact that they kept going at it. It says a lot about their program and the mentality they have."
The last time Bosch had visited Ann Arbor was in early August. He spoke with Michigan coaches then about their plans for recruiting him, and revisited that topic again on Saturday.
"They said they are very excited about me and they are still evaluating some of my film," Bosch said. "I sent in some of my highlights, but I haven't gotten a chance to send in a full game yet. Once I get a full game film up there they should be able to tell me more clearly about where they stand."
The 6-5, 275-pound Bosch already holds offers from Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Purdue, Stanford and West Virginia. He has plans to see games at several of those programs this fall as well.
"On Nov. 26 I am going to a Stanford game versus Notre Dame," Bosch said. "I am definitely going to try to make it out to a Michigan State game and an Iowa game. I think I am going to go to the Iowa vs. Michigan State game [Nov. 12] and then another Michigan State game when they're at home so I get a feel of their home field atmosphere."
Since college coaches have been able to send Bosch mail, the Illinois native has received countless pieces at his home, including some from teams he did not expect.
"The ones that surprised me the most were Miami and Florida State. They sent me a lot of mail," Bosch said. "Alabama's been sending me stuff and Florida… a lot of the southern schools that I did not expect to get as much from are actually sending me a lot of mail."
Bosch has helped lead his Wheaton St. Francis team to a 2-1 start to the season. They dropped their first game of the year last Friday to Marian Central Catholic.
