Hirschfeld Checks Out East Lansing

Hirschfeld Checks Out East Lansing

Hartland Arrowhead (Wisc.) junior defensive end Billy Hirschfeld traveled into Michigan and visited one of the schools that has offered him already, the Michigan State Spartans.

Three schools have offered Billy Hirschfeld: Minnesota, home-state Wisconsin, and the Michigan State Spartans, who he visited for junior day on Sunday.

"It went real good," his father Ronnie Hirschfeld said. "We did the tour and Bill got to sit down with all the coaches, Coach Dantonio put everything on the table for him, and went to the game afterwards."

The Hirschfelds had been to East Lansing before for a game, and this was an opportunity for them to continue building a relationship with the staff.

"The coaches are good guys and very truthful and seem very interested in him. They have a good group of recruits coming in."

Hirschfeld is a 6'6, 270-lb defensive lineman who can play inside and outside. As a junior, he had 63 tackles (17 for loss) and 12 sacks, which has drawn a lot of interest.

He has heard from schools like Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Northern Illinois, Missouri, Toledo and Cincinnati, along with those who have offered and stopped by the school.

"Wisconsin came by, he had Michigan State come by and they're supposed to be coming down again this week."

Hirschfeld was offered by the previous staff at Wisconsin, but has heard from the new staff as well.

"He's been contacted by Coach Chad Kauha'aha'a. I don't know if he's talked to Coach Andersen yet, but nothing personal or anything yet."

As for future visits, Mr. Hirschfeld says, "He's supposed to go to Nebraska and he's supposed to go to Minnesota, as of right now."

All of that is leading towards a decision, a decision whose date has not been determined yet.

"More or less to be determined. We've talked about it. When it feels right he'll do it. He'll do it when he knows which one is the one."
