this from Bill Greene 24/7 Sports...
2021 Class, QB...


There has been a recent dropoff in the state of Ohio in producing Division-I quarterbacks for the next level, but that appears to be changing with the 2021 class and both Brady Lichtenberg and Ian Kipp now hold offers.

Lichtenberg, 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, is coming off an impressive sophomore season at Toledo St. John's Jesuit, and he is a pro style quarterback. Also a good basketball player, Lichtenberg put up big numbers this past season throwing the football.

Several colleges are showing interest in the three-star sophomore, and Lichtenberg recently landed his first Division-I offer.

"I did get my first offer recently, from Bowling Green," Lichtenberg stated. "Coach (Scot) Loeffler was at Boston College last year, and he stopped at my school to see me throw. The week after he got the Bowling Green job, he stopped at my school and gave me the offer."

"I was pretty excited to see he had gotten the Bowling Green job, because he seemed like a great guy, and I was very happy to get an offer from Coach Loeffler," he added. "He said he really liked my film and believes in my talent, so he offered the scholarship. I've been there for games before, and I really like it there."

"The feeling is awesome, and this is something I've been working for a while now," he continued. "It's a relief to know I have that first offer, and I will always remember Bowling Green for being the first school to believe in me. I'm thankful and blessed, and I know Coach Loeffler is highly regarded. He wants me to get to campus as often as possible, so we can keep building our relationship."

Bowling Green isn't the only school that is aware of Lichtenberg, and several other programs have stopped at St. John's to inquire about him. One Big Ten school in particular is standing out to him.

"I've also had coaches from Ohio University, Michigan State and Western Michigan stop at the school to talk to my coach," Lichtenberg explained. "I would think these schools will want to see me in camp next summer."

"Coach (Mike) Tressel was there from Michigan State, and that was great because I've grown up a Michigan State fan," he admitted. "My mom went there, and I've always followed them my whole life. I think they are one of the premier programs in the Big Ten, and I've been to a lot of games there before."

"To receive an offer from Michigan State would mean a lot to me, to be honest," he said. "This would be one of the schools I would consider highly, and they would be one of my top choices for sure."

Lichtenberg is currently ranked as the No. 15 prospect in the state of Ohio for 2021 by 247Sports.

We seem to be getting a lot of preferred walk ons this year....or maybe they're just more publicized

I had never thought about it before but it makes a lot of sense for a team in transition.

Beefing up the walk-on program can be an untapped resource. We're a public school and Ohio kids can pay in-state tuition.

A bunch of contributing d-linemen recently have been walk-ons. Ryan Burbrink wasn't an in-state kid but fit the profile of somebody who deserved a chance and got overlooked because of stupid, archaic size/physical standards that needlessly scare teams away from playmakers.

Publicity like this...emphasizing the local and Midwest ties and the ties to the still popular Lloyd Carr...can be huge benefit in Michigan.

Love how he mentioned Meyer and Clawson as the models for building success at BG and not Babers.

This might be because he is taking on a rebuild not continuing a successful program. Meyer and Clawson took on rebuilds. I would not take that as a negative to Babers. Maybe, maybe not.

IIRC...he framed the statement in the context of creating a program that could sustain success. The team achieved success after Meyer and Clawson left. After Dino left? Nope

Blade may be wrong on this. He said on his twitter he verbaled. However, he might be a PWO or recruited at another position.
