Spitler down to two Big Ten schools

Bellbrook, Ohio, linebacker Austin Spitler, a 6-foot-2 and 225 pounder, has flown under most recruiting radar screens. However recruiters are aware of him and Spitler has the scholarship offers to prove it.
"I have offers from Stanford, Indiana, Wisconsin, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Buffalo, and hopefully Ohio State in the next week or two," Spitler said. "I've narrowed it down to Ohio State and Wisconsin.
"If Ohio State offers, most likely I'll go there. I've been to games there the last couple of weeks. I went to their games against Penn State and Indiana. I'm going to the Ohio State-Michigan game.
"They told me all the coaches like me, they just have to get the nod from coach Jim Tressel.
"I have an official visit set up to Wisconsin Dec. 3."
Spitler has been a varsity starter on both sides of the ball since his sophomore year. He led Bellbrook to a 7-3 record this season making 135 tackles and intercepting two passes from his inside linebacker spot.
