Minnesota official likely for Shutack

La Grange Park (Ill.) Nazareth Academy offensive tackle Jack Shutack holds five offers, but is only confident of one official visit before making his decision.
"I want to make my decision after my senior year," Shutack said. "I haven't planned on taking any officials yet, but I assume I would take an official visit to Minnesota."
Minnesota is one of the five schools that have offered the 6-foot-5, 285-pound Shutack, but he has not visited their campus thus far in the recruiting process.
"I would think I would be (looking) at how they would put me in the best position to succeed and what they have for me that I would really flourish there," Shutack said. "I'm not too worried about getting placed below somebody on the depth chart, because I know I can outwork the person next to me."
The other schools Shutack lists offers from are Iowa State, N.C. State, Purdue and Western Michigan.
"I don't have a team to beat right now," Shutack said. "My high school coach is just telling me to worry about what you can control right now."
Visits, even the unofficial variety, will be tough to plan during the football season because of Shutack's high school schedule.
"The thing about not having lights at Naz is we play our games on Saturday mornings, so I am going to have to look at my schedule," he said.
Waiting until after his senior season is complete to tackle the recruiting process is a scenario Shutack is comfortable with.
"I haven't really been too worried," he said. "I know everything is going to work out the way it should and am just really focused in on my senior year. My friend (Will Colmery) is actually at Purdue right now and he said there is absolutely nothing like high school football, so I am just looking to live it up while I can."
