Barrington, Ill., quarterback Teddy Schell now has a half dozen scholarship offers on the table. Schell says by virtue of those offers, those schools have the advantage, though he is keeping an open mind.
"Obviously the schools that have offered have a leg up," Schell said. "But I'm looking to go to some 1-day camps and throw. I'll go to Stanford, Cal, and Michigan. And I might go to Northwestern and Purdue."
Schell has had offers from Arizona, Kansas State, Rutgers, and Northern Illinois for some time.
"And Eastern Michigan and Duke offered last week," Schell said. "There are no favorites at this point."
Schell has visited a number of schools.
"I went on unofficial visits to USC, Stanford, and Cal, and I went to Iowa for a junior day," he said. "I've been to almost every school in the Big Ten during my lifetime."
Despite the offers, Schell is not ready to select a college.
"I plan on taking official visits," he said. "When I'm completely comfortable with a decision, I'll make it."
The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Schell, a lefty, threw for 1200 yards during his junior season. Schell connected for 11 touchdowns with nine interceptions. Schell is also a very good 1st baseman in baseball and an outstanding student.
