Linebacker Robert Schenck (6-0, 215, 4.7) from San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills is seeing his stock take an upward swing of late. He now has five offers and he has taken one visit to Fresno State and has another visit set this weekend and he two other visits on tap.
Schenck has offers from Fresno State, Arizona, Washington, Washington State, Boston College and may have one more pending from San Diego State.
The young man has a very busy January planned.
"I have a visit to Washington State this weekend (Jan. 13th)," Schenck said. "San Diego State and Arizona are also coming into the act."
Schenck is in the process of setting visits to both Arizona and San Diego State. He already visited Fresno State on December 9th.
"The trip to Fresno State was great," Schenck said. "The people were friendly and their academic game plan is very impressive."
"I was tempted to commit but I held back," Schenck said. "I wanted to see other schools."
"I'm getting recruited by Washington State to play both linebacker and fullback," Schenck said. "Coach George Yarno has had an impact on me. I'll know more when I return."
Schenck hasn't talked to the new staff at San Diego State but they have contacted Mission Hills coach Chris Hauser.
"San Diego State has told my coach they like me as a linebacker," Schenck said. "They haven't contacted me yet because they are busy putting their staff together."
"Arizona offered and we've set up a trip but I'm not sure of the date," Schenck said. "They are recruiting me as a running back."
"I don't care where I play in college," Schenck said. "The most important thing for me is getting an education. Football is a bonus as an award for going to college."
Schenck was selected League Defensive Player of the Year and first-team all-county as a linebacker after racking up 76 tackles, nine tackles for loss, three interceptions, three fumbles caused, two pass breakups and one quarterback hurry. The talented linebacker even had two defensive touchdowns.
On the offensive side of the ball, Schenck rushed for 247 yards and five touchdowns from his fullback position.
