During his most recent visit to Montana State, Blake Schmidt toured the MSU campus, checked out the engineering school, got a glimpse of Bobcat Stadium and got himself acclimated to a place that is very familiar to his family.
While he’s quick to admit that Miller Dining Hall definitely earned his affection more than about any other part of campus — “I’m not going to lie, that was a huge highlight,” the 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive end said with a laugh — the spot that stuck with the San Diego-area native more than anything else is the wall.
Right inside the door to the football coaches’ offices at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, pictures hang on a wall honoring all MSU’s current players who have a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.
“I want to be on that wall,” Schmidt said in a mid-July interview.
