COLUMBUS, Ohio--Warren G. Harding High standout defensive lineman, Hjalte Froholdt is one of the top players from Ohio in the 2015 class.

New to football, Froholdt is a native of Denmark, but you couldn't tell on the field Sunday, as he had an impressive showing at the Nike Football Training Combine.

"I think I did OK," he said on his performance. "All these guys are great athletes. It's the best from all around the state. So, I am very happy to be invited to this camp."

In the past month Froholdt's recruitment has risen to another level, as he's added five offers to his name. The schools interested in his football services include Michigan, Arkansas, Ohio State, Louisville and Michigan State.

"It's been crazy," he said regarding all the recent offers. "It's been hectic. It was my dream, but I thought this would never happen, ever. But I am just happy for everything people giving me and people helping me.

"I feel blessed and thankful for everything I got. I didn't come over here knowing anything about college football. I don't really have a favorite or anything, I'm taking everything in, and I'm taking everything in consideration."

While Frofoldt admits he doesn't have a favorite as of yet, he has been on a campus visit to Michigan and had great things to say about the Wolverines.

"Michigan is a great school," he said. "It's a great program. It's great academics. They have a great football program. They have some good coaches who know what they are doing. They're very nice, I like them."

As far as what he's looking for in a program, Froholdt says people and academics are his biggest factors.

"I just want to know the people and academics because every big college is the same," he said. "They have a big stadium, great weight room, great facilities and great everything. So I feel it's about the people and academics."

In the meantime, Froholdt says he has no visits planned and needs to communicate with his parents on his upcoming schedule.

"I'm not sure yet," he said. "I need to talk to my parents who are back home in Denmark and will figure more out from that.
