Moskal On First Offer

2014 Lake Zurich (Ill.) linebacker Colton Moskal talks about his first offer from Minnesota and more inside.

Linebacker Colton Moskal of Lake Zurich (Ill.) High has one offer under his belt -- and is seeing recruiting pick up.

"Recruiting is going pretty well," Moskal said. "It is starting to pick up a little bit. I have been hearing from Illinois, Duke, Cornell, Indiana and Iowa for the most part now."

Plus, Moskal picked up his first offer from Minnesota.

"My Coach actually called me and told me that Minnesota wanted to talk to me," Moskal said. "So I called them and they offered me."

And what was Moskal's reaction to his first offer?

"It was excitement," Moskal said. "I was so happy, and to find out that all the hard work is paying off, its a dream come true."

He added, "I am very relieved it is a huge weight off my shoulders, now I can focus on becoming the best football player/student athlete I can be."

Although Moskal hasn't seen too much of the Gophers on the field, he likes what he has seen so far.

"I haven't really gotten a chance to really watch their defense," Moskal said. "But I do really like their defensive coaches, I felt like I really connected with them."

In the off-season Moskal has several big goals.

"I want to get bigger, faster, and stronger," Moskal said. "And then I am working on my quickness and explosiveness over at Core 6 Athletes."

And as for potential visits? Moskal hasn't planned any yet.

"Right now I am planning on visiting Cornell and probably some others but I am not sure which schools yet," Moskal said.
