Columbus Hartley junior TE Jacob
Matuska
is a Top 20 Ohio junior football
player and one of the top athletes in central-Ohio. The 6-foot-5 and
240-pound Matuska plays tight end and outside linebacker for Hartley and
has been a varsity starter on the Hawks’ basketball team since his
freshman year.

Matuska
has helped Hartley go 9-0 this season as the Hawks prepare to host a
1st-round playoff game on Saturday.

Matuska was one of the many outstanding prospects in the “Shoe”
on Saturday night for the Ohio State-Wisconsin game.

“That was crazy – definitely one of the best games I’ve ever been
to.” Matuska said. “The whole atmosphere was amazing. The crowd was
really into the game the whole time.”

Matuska has also been to the Akron at Ohio State, Notre Dame at
Michigan and USC at Notre Dame games.

The Hartley star, who is generally being recruited as a tight
end, has scholarship offers from Toledo and Cincinnati. Other offers are
going to come.

“Lately Northwestern, Michigan State, Ohio State, Boston College
and Notre Dame have been in contact the most,” Matuska said.

Matuska has grown up in the catholic school system with Notre
Dame his favorite college.

“I like Notre Dame, Stanford, Michigan, Michigan State, Florida
State, Ohio State and Tennessee,” Matuska said. “Right now my favorite
would be Notre Dame, but I’m just keeping my options open.”

Kurelic’s Comment: If the Irish offer they will be tough
to beat for Matuska, and I could see Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly making
that offer. I could also certainly see the Buckeyes offering him.
