HSFB: Schmidt Commits To Ohio St.

HSFB: Schmidt Commits To Ohio St.
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After finishing runner up a year ago, Roosevelt will enter the 2014 season as the 11AAA favorites thanks in part to their star-studded senior class. QB Taryn Christian and his top target Chase Vinatieri have yet to make their college decisions, but yesterday Grant Schmidt did.

At 6-foot-6 and 275 pounds, Roosevelt Senior Grant Schmidt isn't hard to miss. That is why he has been recruited by some of the biggest programs in the country. So why did he chose to be a Buckeye?

"I had a really great visit out there," exclaimed Roosevelt Senior Offensive Linemen Grant Schmidt. "I have a great relationship with their offensive line coach and their Offensive line Grad Assistant. They are both great guys and will be good coaches for me. That was the main factor going into it. Not to mention they have a great program, a great stadium, and great fans. All of those things factored into being a great place for me," Schmidt added.

For one more season Roosevelt will be a great place for him. Now entering his final year he knows he needs to be a leader and make sure his peers understand that scouts are beginning to tap into the Rushmore state.

"We train year around for it and it's about time that we're getting recognized a bit more on the national level," said Schmidt. We lead by example and we don't say a whole lot to them unless a guys has a question then we answer it. We're good to them. We don't haze them like other teams do. We take the other guys under our wings and treat them like our little brothers and make sure they feel welcome to our program. If we do that they usually work pretty hard and we get good results."

The Rough Riders went undefeated last season before falling in the 11AAA title game to Lincoln. Schmidt knows he will be chasing down national titles after high school. But first he wants to end his prep career the way he started it, on top.

"It would mean the world to me. It's what I've always wanted to do. We got one my freshman year and that felt great, now I want that feeling back. We are definitely hungry for it. Now that this political recruiting process is out of the way I can focus on what I need to focus on and continue to play football. That is what I do," Schmidt said.

Schmidt will join the likes of Nate Gerry, Matt VandeBerg, the Farniok, and Reiff brothers as recent South Dakota players on FBS rosters.
