"I have offers from Miami (OH) and Kent State," Madsen reported. "Northwestern, Illinois, Duke, Navy, Air Force, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Cincinnati are also showing me a lot of interest.
"Duke, Miami (OH), and Cincinnati were the first schools to contact me last week. I think it shows that they are the programs that have a high interest in me. I would not mind staying closer to home, but I would not mind going away for college.
"I took unofficial visits to Miami and Kent State. At Miami I really liked the campus and the football facilities and weight room were unreal. It was a really nice visit."
Madsen garnered All-Conference honors after having a successful junior campaign.
