Plymouth, Minn. dual threat quarterback prospect Mitch Brecke (6-foot-0, 175 pounds) basically camped everywhere this summer that you can imagine. Brecke has finally wrapped up an blur of college camps and unofficial visits this summer, and Brecke reflects on his summer events.
“I guess you can say that I got around this summer," laughed Mitch Brecke. “I went to Iowa Nike camp as well as one-day camps at Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota State, Michigan and Princeton. I also made unofficial visits to Cornell, Buffalo and Brown."
Brecke talked about his camp experiences and more.
"My goal this summer was to be seen as much as possible, and I feel that I accomplished that goal. I was able to show several different coaches what I can do in person. In general I'm glad that I was able to hit as many camps as I did this summer, and it was definitely worth it. I was able to meet and work with coaches from several different colleges, and I learned some new wrinkles as well as being able to reinforce some fundamentals."
Brecke also recently made an unofficial visit to North Dakota State.
"I made a visit last week to North Dakota State, and I really enjoyed the visit. I was able to get a better feeling for the coaches, and I also was able to check out the campus and the facilities. NDSU plays in a dome, and that was an impressive facility, plus they are in the process of renovating and upgrading more of the facilities."
Does Brecke have any early favorites?
"I'm still pretty open at this point, but both North Dakota State and Cornell would be my two early favorites at this point. I made an unofficial visit to Cornell this summer, and I really enjoyed everything about the school. The coaches said that I was their top recruit at quarterback, so i know that they are really interested in me at this point."
As far as a time-frame for making his final college choice, Brecke is in no rush at this point.
"I've been told from several schools that they will be requesting my early senior tape. From a camp perspective I feel that I've done all that I can do, so now we'll see how things go for me this fall."
