Westerkamp Open To Everything

Thanks to an impressive junior season, three-star wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp has begun to generate major interest from some of the top programs around the Midwest.

The Montini Catholic product Jordan Westerkamp has received interest from Northwestern, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Iowa, Bowling Green, Indiana, Purdue, Boston College, Illinois, Nebraska, and Minnesota.

Among those schools, seven have extended offers, including Northwestern, Illinois, Indiana, Bowling Green, Minnesota, Iowa, and Boston College.

Right now, since he's only a junior, Westerkamp is still in the information gathering stage.

"I'm open to everything right now," he said.

However, Westerkamp hopes to start visiting schools very soon. He has been to both Illinois and Northwestern "many times" and has already been to Iowa's junior day. He also plans on going to Wisconsin's and Notre Dame's junior days.

While Westerkamp plans on visiting Northwestern again, he has enjoyed the time he has already spent in Evanston.

"I like the coaching staff and their program," he said. "I really like Coach Fitz's attitude. He's really energetic at practice."

The coaching staff is one of the main reasons Westerkamp is interested in NU. However, after receivers coach Kevin John left for Indiana, he is still waiting to see who his new position coach would be.

"I had a meeting with [coach Pat Fitzgerald] and with their past receiver coach, Coach John, who is moving to Indiana," Westerkamp said. "I'm still waiting to see who new receiver coach is."

With plenty of time left to make a decision, Westerkamp does not have any favorite schools at this point in the recruiting process.

He plans to narrow his list down to five schools where he can take official visits because "you can't visit everywhere."

After visiting his final five choices Westerkamp hopes to make a decision before the start of next year's football season.

Westerkamp finished his junior season with incredible numbers. He had 89 catches for 1,611 yards, and 21 touchdowns. In the state championship game, he had seven catches, 126 yards, and three touchdowns, en-route to a 34-21 Montini win.
