Considering his father and three of his four siblings have attended Notre Dame, snagging Nathan Reuvers out of Minnesota might be a harder task than it seems. Reuvers even made the initial contact with the Irish in this case. However, that hasn't stopped Wisconsin from tracking Reuvers closely over the last few months. He took an unofficial visit to Madison in September, and assistant coach Lamont Paris watched Reuvers in February. Greg Gard flew up personally to watch Lakeville North top Rochester John Marshall in a sectional final on Friday, March 4. Reuvers played exceptionally well from all accounts and received an offer from Gard afterward.

Reuvers has drawn favorable comparisons to a young Jon Leuer. Like Leuer, he is a bit of a late riser, having spent time on the JV team as a sophomore at perennial power Lakeville North. He has even played goalkeeper on the North soccer team -- imagine scoring on someone that size. Bythe end of his junior season, this senior-to-be held scholarship offers from Air Force, Cornell, Creighton, DePaul, Duquesne, Green Bay, North Dakota, Penn, Santa Clara, South Dakota State, San Diego, and Yale, meaning Wisconsin beat Minnesota to the punch with his first high-major offer. Reuvers switched over to the D1 Minnesota program this year on the travel circuit. He has since picked up offers from Clemson, Illinois, Northwestern, Illinois, Minnesota, Marquette, North Carolina State, Washington State, Harvard and Princeton, while drawing interest from Stanford, Notre Dame and Xavier among others. He made an unofficial visit to Wisconsin on Wednesday, May 18 and pulled the trigger right away.
