Michigan OL looking for big offers

One of the players the Michigan State staff is looking forward to having at camp this summer is Paul Jorgenson of DeWitt High School. The 6-foot-7, 255-pound lineman already has a BCS offers on the table and is looking for more. SpartanMag.com has the latest on his recruitment and camp plans.

Jorgenson has been offered a scholarship by both the Cincinnati Bearcats and Central Michigan Chippewas. In addition to those two teams, several other Big Ten and BCS teams are in frequent contact.

"I was at Wisconsin's Junior Day this past weekend, he said. I had a good time. I also and going to go to Purdue and Northwestern."

Do you have any plans for summer camps?

"Yes, I am going to go to Michigan State's camp and I also plan on going to the University of Florida for camp in June. I talked with Florida's offensive line coach and he wants me to come down there."

In addition to camps and junior days, Jorgenson informed SpartanMag.com that he will likely head over to Michigan State in the coming weeks to check out a session or two of spring practice.

Jorgenson's primary recruiter for Michigan state is Coach Dan Warner. He also indicated that he speaks with Coach Mark Staten frequently. Jorgenson has also developed a good rapport with his primary recruiter from Cincinnati, Coach Jeff Quinn.

As far as a decision, much could depend on the offers he picks up at camps this summer. Don't be surprised if that is the time period when Jorgenson sees his stock really begin to rise.

"My plan is to make my decision before my senior year, he said. If it doesn't happen though, I will just wait until after my season.

Michigan State could be in a strong position to land Jorgenson if they offer this summer at camp. Not only did he grow up going to games at Spartan stadium, but also he has two brothers that attend there now.

The majority of offensive lineman signed by the Spartans since Coach Dantonio's arrival have had to camp at Michigan State in order to secure a scholarship offers. Current roster members like John Deyo, Anthony Woods, Micajah Reynolds and Henry Conway all were offered after working with line Coach Dan Roushar.

SpartanMag.com will continue to follow-up with Jorgenson in the coming weeks. It is very possible that he could end up being the top offensive line prospect in the state of Michigan for the class of 2010.
