Currently searching for his first offer, 2014 offensive tackle Luke Ritter has already received interest from a few major programs in the country. One of these programs sent a coach to visit him, and that program is none other than Big Ten power Michigan State. Spartans coach Dave Warner was sent yesterday to visit the Delaware Valley High standout, and Ritter is certainly one to watch. He is one of the top prospects in the state of Pennsylvania, and Penn State has their eyes set on him.
The in-state recruit camped at Penn State early in June and had a camp visit at Rutgers a couple of days later. Both Big Ten teams have interest in Ritter, and Scarlet Knights coach Kyle Flood has kept Ritter on the team’s recruiting radar.
It won’t be long before the 6’6″, 275 pound 2014 tackle receives his first offer, and the N.C. State Wolfpack are among the teams interested. They have offered 12 offensive tackles in the 2014 class already, with three-star South Carolina OT Christian Taylor looking like the top target for N.C. State in this class.
He may be a relative unknown at this point, but Ritter has talent, size, and has been getting attention from four major programs. He’s big on the Big Ten radar, with the visit from Warner yesterday being especially huge. Coaches from MSU, PSU, and Rutgers have evaluated him, and it looks like the evaluations have all checked in well. He could very well be one of the best rated offensive linemen in the state of Pennsylvania once the recruiting rankings are put out there.
