Pasadena (Calif.) Maranatha quarterback Matt Schilz was originally slated to attend Kansas State, but when Bill Snyder came in, the two parties parted ways. Now he's found a new home in the MAC.
"Matt has committed to Bowling Green," Staci Schilz said.
"Matt is happy to have found what seems a perfect fit for him. Both the coaching staff and the offensive scheme they run are just what he was looking for. He committed over the phone to coach Dave Clawson and offensive coordinator Warren Ruggiero."
Schilz was sold on a number of different factors.
"They have a rich history and a college town atmosphere that Matt really likes," Schilz said. "The coaches love to get the ball in the air and their quarterbacks have always been successful. Matt can't wait to get there in June and get started."
He takes his official visit to Bowling Green on Jan. 16.
"Until then, he is working hard on and off the field," Schilz said. "He is studying film, lifting weights and continues his training. As his parents, we are very happy about his choice. It's a huge decision to make and we feel he has made the right one for the right reasons."
