Colorado State football recruiting: Rams pick up S Jake Schlager

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The all-state safety was also entertaining the possibility of heading to Nebraska as a preferred walk-on.

The Colorado St. Rams have received a verbal commitment from All-Nebraska safety Jake Schlager, according to Rivals.com and several sources.

The 6'1, 195-pound safety averaged nearly 19 tackles per game during his senior season at McCook High School, a Class B team. Schlager tallied 169 tackles on the season (66 of them solo), assisted on 37 tackles and added seven sacks. He also had a hand in four turnovers and blocked six kicks.

Schlager, who was rated as a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, was being recruited as a preferred walk-on by Nebraska, and was also reported to be weighing offers from FCS programs, North Dakota State, South Dakota, South Dakota State and Southeast Missouri State. He becomes the 17th commit to the Rams' 2013 recruiting class, joining four mid-year junior-college transfers who signed with the program on Wednesday.

Schlager cannot sign a letter of intent until Feb. 6, and Rams head coach Jim McElwain cannot comment on the recruit until that time.
