Wisconsin Lineman Making a Name for Himself

Adam Hahn

Last season, offensive lineman Adam Hahn blocked for incoming Central Michigan University quarterback Brian Brunner at Hartford (Wisc.) Union High School. This summer, Hahn has followed in Brunner's footsteps as one the hottest football recruits in America's Dairyland.

Offensive lineman Adam Hahn (6-4, 265) has the size, strength and agility that college coaches look for. In layman's terms, he's big, fast, and strong.

Hahn is rated the #8 overall 2005 prospect in Wisconsin by BadgerStatePreps.com. The college recruiters tend to agree with that assessment.

Hahn said he currently has three scholarship offers, including Indiana University, Northern Illinois, and a recent offer from Central Michigan.

"I visited CMU one day last month and thought it was very nice," Hahn said. "It's a great city, great campus, great coaches, and of course, my buddy Brian (Brunner) is there."

Hahn said although he didn't attend camp at CMU, the coaches seemed very impressed with his junior film.

"CMU is recruiting me to play offensive line," Hahn said. "The coaches told me they like the way I hit, get off the ball and move around the field."

Hahn said he is also considering offers from Indiana and Northern Illinois. He was offered by the Hoosiers as an offensive or defensive lineman after attending their camp last month.

"Indiana is the Big Ten of course, and it would mean a chance to play more of the big schools on a regular basis," Hahn said. "Northern Illinois is a winning program and is close to home."

Hahn said he has established a timeline for making a college decision.

"If I don't have a decision by Sept.1, I will definitely have it narrowed down to my top two or three schools," Hahn said. "I'm also interested in Northwestern and Wisconsin."

Hahn added that he attended a one-day camp at Wisconsin and also plans on attending a one-day camp at Northwestern July 23.

With former high school teammate and good friend Brian Brunner already a Chippewa, has this had any influence in Hahn's decision on where he will play his college ball?

"It seems every time I talk to Brian he has something new to tell me about the program," Hahn laughed. "He talks about the coaches and what great people they are. Definitely Brian being there is going to help CMU."

Hahn's quickness and agility would appear to make him an ideal offensive lineman for CMU's spread offense. Hahn said that type of offense appeals to him, as does the possibility of earlier playing time at a MAC school as opposed to a Big Ten school.

"How soon would I be on the field at a Wisconsin or Indiana versus CMU or Northern Illinois," Hahn asked? "At CMU, the coaches have told me they'd like for me to be ready to play by my sophomore season of eligibility following a redshirt year."

Perhaps Hahn will be able to answer his own question within the next couple of months as he prepares for his senior year at Hartford.

Last season, Hahn helped lead the Orioles to a 9-2 record and a berth in the second-round of the Wisconsin state playoffs. He was a consensus Division I (big school) all-state selection in 2003.

"We lost a lot of key players to graduation, but we'll still be a good team," Hahn said.
