24-7Football.com has confirmed that Peoria (Az.) Liberty DT Aaron Blackwell has received his first division-one scholarship offer.
Blackwell says, "South Dakota State offered me today. I talked to Coach Rogers and he said that he watched my film and they like how I could play on either side of the football."
Blackwell (6-3 270) made 73 tackles, 19 for a loss and 6 sacks this year, helping the Lions to a runner-up finish in the division-two playoffs.
Before his dominating performance as a senior, Blackwell was an all-section guard as a junior.
