A couple new commitments and a sleeper getting national attention are just some of the topics…
Schebler: "Army loved my versatility"
"I had sent [Army] my film," said Schebler. "They finally emailed me and wanted me to call Coach Mumford, who handled my recruiting. He came to my home for an in-home visit and the meeting went well, but he didn't offer yet. It wasn't until he came back the second time with the head coach, that they extended the offer. This all happened in January.
"It only took me one or two days after I got home from West Point to make my commitment the week before Signing Day. I knew when I was there it was the right place for me to be. There's so much more to the school than the football program. The campus, the surrounding area, the history, and the opportunity the Academy is going to provide me after college is what sold me. The military aspect was what I had to think a little extra about. I'm ready for that challenge. I'm happy to be going to such a prestigious institution that gives me the chance to better myself as a person."
As a senior at Assumption High School, a private Roman Catholic school established in 1958, Schebler was named second team all-Mississippi Conference at defensive back and received honorable mention honors at wide receiver.
"The coaches at Army loved my versatility," he said. "They like that they'll be able to use me in different spots. I've talked to them about playing like a strong safety-outside linebacker. My junior year I played cornerback on defense but I moved to safety as a senior.
"After the season, I played basketball. Coach Mumford came down to one of my games. In the spring I'm going to run the 100 and 200 meter dash. I'm trying to prepare myself to go to Prep this summer. I'd like to get in there and get some playing time."
Before committing to Army, Schebler was being pursued by Northern Iowa and Illinois State. He spots a 3.4 GPA and was named MAC All-Academic in 2012. On Signing Day, Schebler said he enjoy a small gathering in his high school's library with friends and family. He was coached in football by Wade King, who has served as the Knights head coach for the past 11 seasons. Schebler will report to USMAPS on July 22nd.
