A Note on Jon Reschke…

A Note on Jon Reschke…


September 15, 2011
Jon Reschke

Linebacker Jon Reschke, an in-state 2013 prospect from Birmingham (MI) Brother Rice, recently appeared on Scout.com’s list of top 100 prospects for the class.  Reschke has not yet been offered by Michigan, but an offer to an in-state kid with his level of talent is almost a foregone conclusion.  He was in attendance for Michigan’s victory against Notre Dame and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere.

As for where Reschke plans to go to college, that might be a bit more sobering to Michigan fans.  His father attended Michigan State, but he seems most intrigued by the team that Michigan beat under the lights on Saturday – Notre Dame.  Reschke likes their tradition and seems to be turned off by the amount of talent that the Wolverines are bringing in at linebacker for the class of 2012, which might prevent him from playing early.  So far only Michigan State and Toledo have offered, but others are surely on their way in the coming months.  Michigan would still have a shot with Reschke and likely remain high on his list, but Notre Dame seems to be his early leader.

Reschke would likely play SAM linebacker or weakside defensive end at the next level.  He looks to be in the mold of a player like Jake Ryan, who Michigan fans are quickly growing to love.  He’s a likely 4-star prospect when all the rankings are done.
Thanks to the loyal reader who passed along this info, who will remain anonymous.

    Even though he looks like a good prospect, I don't want anyone who is scared of competition. We brought in 2 good classes of LB's and if he is worried about a lack of PT then ND and MSU can fight this one out.

    The kid looks good, but honestly kids who shy away from good competition don't belong at Michigan. I understand wanting to play early, but to think you don't have to earn your right at an elite program like Michigan is ludicrous.
    Hopefully he changes his mindset and gives Michigan a real chance.

    Word has been that he is especially close with S. Morris… and would have to feel that, along with the momentum UM has gained instate lands us this kid. Also, feel like its UM's privilege to essentially be done with the 3012 class and spend more time focusing on 2013….. Shallman, Elmer, Morris and this kid would be great start to next year (along with D Thomas)

    I don't fault a kid for considering the depth chart and incoming competition when choosing a school. Outside of life-long fans, I imagine most kids strongly consider it. You'd be crazy not to. One reason UM is attracting so many OL/DL for this upcoming class is because Mattison and Funk are hard-selling early PT. So there's irony in attracting kids with promises of early PT and then criticizing "scared" prospects who are favoring other schools for the same reasoning.
