NU Is Hooper's First Offer

A Big Ten school is the first to offer the Concord (Calif.) De La Salle DE/TE, Austin Hooper...

Concord (Calif.) De La Salle won another state title and one of the unsung heroes this year was two-way TE/DE Austin Hooper.

And Hooper added his first offer from the Big Ten.

"Northwestern offered Austin," said his trainer, Nathan Kenion.

And more could be coming his way.

"Colorado could be getting close too," said Kenion.

As a junior, Hooper helped the Spartans to the CIF State Open Division title, racking up 46 tackles and 10.5 sacks despite rarely playing into the second half, and he also caught nine passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns in the Spartans' veer offense.
