Luke Tiemann Profile 


Luke Tiemann, a 6-foot-2-inch, 199-pound linebacker from Pflugerville, Texas, is diving into his senior season with a full plate of Division I scholarship offers. Wisconsin, Kansas, Houston, Baylor, Duke, Wyoming and several others have offered the linebacker (ranked 37th at his position nationally).


Tiemann said that he is anxious to see what his football future holds, but right now his priority is helping the Pflugerville squad to reach the state playoffs.


"We lost a game in overtime, but other than that, we are doing really well," Tiemann said. "Personally, I am making improvements on the things that I wanted to, so that is good. As a team we are doing pretty well though."


Oklahoma State is on Tiemann's list of favorites, but so far, Miles and Co. have not given him an official scholarship offer.


"They are getting film from my high school coach, and the coach called me the other day, but I missed his call," Tiemann said. "I am not sure which coach it was, but I hope to get to talk to him soon."


The Texas linebacker said he doesn't have a date set, but the only school he knows will get one of his official visits is Wisconsin.


"Wisconsin for sure, I am really impressed with their program, I really like the coaches that I have talked to and they have a great program there," he said. "They are at the top of the list right now, but the rest of the schools are all pretty much up in the air because they have to see my tape first."


Tiemann said while he is really impressed with the Badger program, he hopes some of the other schools step up soon and offer.


"I seriously will look at any school that shows interest in me – I will give all of them consideration before I decide my final five. I really like Wisconsin, they have shown me a lot of interest and they are just a top program."


It may sound like Tiemann is leaning toward being Badger-bound, but the high school senior said anything can happen between now and signing day.


"I pretty much want to wait and see how the interest is with all the other schools, first. If they watch my tape and show some interest, then I will hold off for sure. I am not going to make a decision until I am sure that everyone who wants to offer has done so. Even if my trip to Wisconsin goes really well, I am still going to give everyone else a chance."


Tiemann said he wants to major in business or communications at the school he chooses.
