Illinois WR Has A Duke Offer Plus Many Others

C.J. Fiedorowicz, is quickly becoming one of the hottest prospects in the class of 2010. The 6-foot-7 wide receiver has pulled in a total of seven offers, including a recent verbal offer from LSU.

C.J. Fiedorowicz a 6-foot-7, 240 pound wide receiver from Johnsburg (Ill.) has received offers from Notre Dame, Indiana, Arizona, Iowa, Wisconsin, Duke and a recent verbal offer from LSU. Several other BCS programs, including USC are keeping a close eye on the three-sport athlete.

While a freshman at Johnsburg, Fiedorowicz competed at the varsity level in football, basketball and baseball. Notre Dame was the first school to offer him, but the recent verbal offer from LSU's Tight Ends coach, Josh Henson, has Fiedorowicz thinking about playing in warm weather.

"LSU gave me a verbal offer a couple weeks ago," Fiedorowicz said. "My high school coach, Todd Winter, sent video down there for me—I didn't know he did. Coach Winter called me into his office one day and he was on the phone with Coach Henson and that's when they verbally offered me."

Fiedorowicz who had 67 receptions for 1,070 yards as a sophomore in 2007, said LSU wants to meet him in person.

"They told me they want me to come down there on an unofficial visit," he said. "Coach Henson wants me to come down there and formally accept the offer. I will try to make it down to Baton Rouge before basketball begins.

"LSU is probably at the top of my list right now, but I want to see what type of offense they run and see if I would fit in with it. I am getting recruited as a tight end, so if they don't throw to the tight ends, I don't know if I will go there."

USC, UCLA and many other major programs are interested in Fiedoworicz's talent. The Trojans, like the Tigers, want C.J. to come out to their campus on an unofficial visit.

"USC sends me a lot of letters and I spoke with their recruiting coordinator (Brennan Carroll) and the Trojans want to see me and have me come out there before they make a decision on an offer.

"I will probably go out to L.A. to take a look at USC around the same time I go to see LSU, which will be during those two weeks before basketball. I will also make a trip up to see UCLA while I am out there."

Fiedorowicz, whose fastball has been clocked at 91 m.p.h, reports a (4.55) forty-yard time.
