Schafer will be the latest Cretin lineman to move on to the Division I level, joining former Raiders Matt Carufel (Notre Dame), Ned Tavale (Minnesota), Raef Eubanks (Iowa) and Ryan Harris (Notre Dame).
Schafer attended the Iowa camp last week and was at Minnesota Saturday. He said that he might attend the Notre Dame camp.
Schafer said that there will not be one factor in his college chocie, which he said could come in July.
"The whole thing. Academics and all things will go into the decision," he said.
Schafer played for the Cretin basketball team this winter. He started at center early this season when Broderick Binns was sidelined with a thigh bruise, but moved to the bench with Binns healthy. He feels that the teamwork they showed will help this year on the gridiron.
"I think that more than half of our players are football players. We just go from football to basketball," Shafer said. "We like to have fun. We have good camaraderie. I think basketball helps with footwork, quickness and to stay in shape."
Football and basketball teammate Michael Floyd has been offered scholarships by Minnesota and two-sport teammate John Nance and Shady Salamon have already committed to the Gophers.
