Westphal nearing 20 offers

Parrker Westphal from Bolingbrook (Ill.) has been on the recruiting radar for a while now. The 6-foot-0 and 175-pound cornerback is now one of the most sought after cornerbacks in the nation.

Parrker Westphal is still having big offer weeks even when it means he got one new one and verification that he's had one from another school. The highly sought after cornerback from Bolingbrook (Ill.) is getting close to having 20 total offers.

"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.

"I have taken trips to Michigan, Illinois and Northwestern this year already. I am going to visit Florida this April probably. After that I will probably just go to the B2G in Los Angeles."

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.

"I would probably take a trip there later this summer, but I have no clue yet when. Coach John Garrison has been my primary recruiter for Nebraska and Coach Terry Joseph is helping out."
