Schofield (Wis.) D.C. Everest offensive tackle Connor Riese has pulled in two scholarship offers thus far in the recruiting process, and he is looking to add more this summer by attending several college camps.
"I am going to Western Michigan on the 9th of June for their camp," Riese said. "I am definitely planning on making it to Minnesota and Wisconsin."
Riese's two offers are from Western Michigan and Wyoming, but he has received significant interest from Minnesota and Wisconsin. At Minnesota, Riese has been in contact with assistant coaches Jim Zebrowski and Matt Limegrover.

"They said I have to prove myself at camp, but this is going to be where I get my offer if I get one," Riese said. "They didn't graduate any linemen last year, so it is going to be a challenge for me. But I am going to do everything I can to get an offer."
Riese attended multiple spring practices at Minnesota and keeps up with its coaching staff on a weekly basis. He has not had as much contact with Wisconsin during that period, but he still keeps up with the Badgers' coaching staff on a regular basis and is looking forward to proving himself at their summer camp.
"I think they are mostly looking if I can move or not," Riese said. "I think they saw on film that I could, and they just want to make sure I am going to be the right fit for their team."
Other teams that have shown significant interest in Riese include Florida International, Northern Illinois and North Dakota State. He has been communicating with Florida International coaches over Facebook.
"They said they were pretty excited and had news for me sometime soon," Riese said.
The 6-foot-7, 310-pound Riese is being recruited exclusively for the offensive tackle position and is rated at three stars.
