"I was very happy about (the offer)," Playko said. "It's another step getting to see all of the different types of schools that are out there."
The three-star prospect is planning on taking his time evaluating each school. Playko was up at Buffalo this weekend and will be at Michigan on Monday. He'll also make stops at West Virginia and Michigan State sometime this week.
The superstar just wants to enjoy the entire process before rushing to make a decision. At the moment, Playko says he's completely done away with a list of favorites.
"I don't feel like I have a top list anymore," he said. "I want to get a chance to see all of the different schools and experience the atmosphere at each one."
It's anybody's race but an offer from Northwestern might change all that.
"If they offered me it would be a great honor, that would be amazing," Playko said. "They're continuing to build; they're striving to become Big Ten Champs."
Northwestern is on the verge of achieving something special, which is something Playko wants to be a part of.
Could he envision himself as a Wildcat?
"I could definitely," Playko said. "The program itself is amazing, the school is legendary, and I love Coach Fitzgerald."
