One of the top Midwest signal callers for 2002 will be Hinsdale (Ill) Central quarterback Brad Bower.
Bower will be a three-year varsity starter and he already has a scholarship offer under his belt.
"Northwestern offered me a scholarship," Bower said. "Notre Dame has really picked up a lot. I think I'm going to their spring game later this month.
"I stopped at the University of Florida during spring break and I had the chance to speak to the coaching staff. I liked Florida a lot.
"As far as camps go, I'm definitely going to Purdue, Northwestern and Illinois. Penn State is a maybe. If UCLA shows interest during May, I might fly out there for their camp."
Bower threw for 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2001. He also had eight rushing touchdowns.
"Northwestern, Illinois, Iowa, Penn State and Boston College are still my favorites right now."
The Northwestern Wildcats were the first to offer Bower a scholarship and that's no surprise.
Former Wildcat offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson thought very highly of Bower when he first saw him at a summer camp two years ago.
Wilson is gone, he's coaching at Oklahoma now but Randy Walker also thought enough of Bower to offer a scholarship early in the recruiting process.
