Mentor (Ohio) Lake Catholic Rick Stanzi has become one of the hottest targets in all of Ohio. And the list of people chasing after him definitely proves it.
After getting an offer from Iowa last Wednesday, the 6-foot-4, 193-pounder said he's now got coaches working around his schedule to get him in for an official visit. He also doesn't mind changing things around for a few schools, too.
"I'm now going to go to Toledo on December 12 instead of December 9," Stanzi, an all-Ohio selection, said. "The coaches want me to come down and watch them practice before their bowl game. I figured it was a good opportunity to see what the coaches are like with their players."
Stanzi tours Miami of Ohio this upcoming weekend, followed by the trip to Toledo. He then is at Iowa on December 16.
As a senior, Stanzi completed 156 of 259 passes for 2,170 yards and 21 touchdowns. The quarterback led Lake Catholic to a 10-2 record and has already earned several post-season honors, including district offensive player of the year.
