Busy summer schedules are normal for prospects so they can tour campuses but Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista offensive lineman Jacob Welter is taking it to the extreme.
Friends back home shouldn't expect to see Welter much this summer, that's how often he'll be on a visit.
Welter, a 6-foot-5, 291-pound recruit, plans to visit Wake Forest, Michigan, Notre Dame and Kansas for camps and then take trips to Duke, Louisville, Ohio, UCLA and maybe Wisconsin to see the campuses.
That's an incredible amount of traveling and sacrifice but Welter, who holds an Ohio offer and is hearing from lots of schools, is willing to commit to such a rigorous schedule to find out what he likes best.
"It's going to be tight, my schedule is pretty tight and there won't be much room for other things but I'm going to try to get it done and get to as many places as possible," Welter said at the Rivals.com Five-Star Academy at Cal.
"I really am excited. It's going to be great to see different places, different kinds of football and how it changes all across the country."
Funny thing is with all the traveling Welter has planned it seems the in-state Bruins have been the ones to increase their interest the most recently.
Welter, whose father, Tom, played at Nebraska, said he's been in close contact with UCLA offensive line coach Bob Palcic and the talks are going well. To no one's surprise, Welter plans to make a trip to Westwood this summer.
"That picked up a little bit now," Welter said. "It started with some e-mails from him and he asked me to call him so I called him on the phone and we talked. He told me I was their No. 1 o-line recruit for my class. That's really great to hear especially from such a great school like UCLA so that's really exciting.
"Our quarterback had originally committed to UCLA (Brett Nottingham) and now he's going to Stanford. It's a great college. It's on the rise right now, getting better and better and it would be great to play in the Pac-10, a really competitive conference."
