The 6-5 and 280-pound Christian Westerman or "The Truth" has one goal in mind.
"I am working in the weight room, classroom and focusing on my third straight Arizona 5A1 State Title and championship for my Chandler team."
Westerman and his family are enjoying the recruiting process and taking time to fully understand each and every team and the opportunity they present.
"With time on my side, I want to take my time and see, meet and understand all of the opportunities before me. I feel that as a player I have earned the right to take my time, focus on the here and now and be accountable to my team and teammates before I decide my future. I want to see how teams, coaches and programs progress in the coming year."
Westerman knows at some point he will be faced with tough decisions.
"I would like to narrow my list to five to six schools by my senior season so I can start to focus. Florida is definitely of interest and I hear a lot from coach Meyer via email and coach White was recently at my school to meet with my coaches, both are an honor."
Westerman knows he is in preparation for not only winning another state title but the collegiate level and is doing everything in his powers to make sure he gives himself the best chance of success.
"I continue to prepare myself for the next level in the weight room (just benched 415) and with my footwork and agility as well as speed off the ball. In pass protection I want to be big and strong but super athletic. I want to impact the college program of choice in a big way, right away and be what my dad calls me 'The Truth.'"
