Robert Schenck 6' 2 235 lb
Schenck is the type of linebacker/athlete that normally would find himself being coveted by the big boys, which he is, but Fresno State's tops his list of schools. Washington State is a close second, followed by Arizona and Boston College is a distant third. At his current height and weight he is listed with a 4.7 40 time per rivals.com. As a 205 lb junior he ran a 10.6 100 yard dash. At the Fresno State prospect camp last summer, he measured 6' 13/4 221 lbs, he ran a 4.54 40 on a slow grass field. Schenck could become a great running back, defensive end or linebacker at the next level. Linebacker is more than likely his position if he becomes a Bulldog. He could make the move to defensive end like Ricky Miller, even though he is a bit shorter.
Schenck could help out at linebacker immediately, but if Pat Hill redshirts him then I expect him to be moved to DE. After year in the program, he could well near 250 lbs and maybe even grow an inch taller. Schenck is also listed as 3 star recruit and the nation's 60th best linebacker by rivals. Hill is on pace to have his best class ever, even topping the famed 2002 class. The 2002 class had two 4 star athletes, Vincent Mays and Ricky Miller, and a hoard of 3 star guys, including Jordan Christensen and Robbie Dubois who were listed 3 stars by scout.com. Ironically, the two best players out of the 2002 class were not even 4 or 3 star guys. Richard Marshall was a 2 star cornerback, but was still widely considered a top 100 CB in the nation. The other was just a walk-on linebacker, Garrett McIntyre. Schenck stats:
