A 4-3 MLB that takes good angles to the ball and has good closing speed. Needs to work on his ability to make tackles in space and his ability to shed blocks to become an elite linebacker.
Family connections to the state of North Carolina prompted Schoettmer to seek other options here. His father, Steve, played football at Duke, while his mother Donna (tennis) and brother Stephen (baseball) were athletes at Wake Forest.

Schoettmer contacted former UNC coach Butch Davis, who offered him a chance to join the Tar Heels as a recruited walk-on in 2011.

"He's a humble kid," notes Brown. "He's a very intelligent kid. He talks about a lot of things other than football. He's interested in a lot of things other than football. But he wants to be the greatest to put on pads, so I'm going to help him get there."
