"Vanderbilt confirmed that they offered me this week, but they said that they offered when they came to see me," Westphal said. "That was a while ago. Like, last year at summer camp.
"Minnesota offered me yesterday. That makes 18 offers total. I am still just trying to take all of it in. I want to also check out all of the schools that have offered and that I am interested in."
Westphal has gotten out this spring to see a few schools and there is a big trip lined up for April. After that he says that he will probably make a return trip to Los Angeles later this summer.
The senior season allows players to come in and sometimes be players that they couldn't be whether it's vocally or otherwise. Westphal has always been a leader for Bolingbrook, but he's planning on taking it to another level this year.
"I am looking forward to coming in two times stronger and just taking some heads off," Westphal said. "That's what I am most excited about. I am working on my agility and my speed.
"I am running track, I just had a track meet today actually, and this was an indoor event. When outdoor comes around I will run the 100m, 200m, long jump and triple jump. My personal best 100m is 11.2-seconds."
Last spring Westphal took a trip to Lincoln to see Nebraska. He admits that he didn't get as much attention as some of the other recruits, mostly because he was a year younger, and he would like to see Nebraska again this summer possibly.
"I went to Nebraska last year for their junior day when I was just a sophomore. I will most likely make more plans to visit there again because they were mainly focused on the juniors then.
