Michigan OL picks up more offers

Based on scholarship offers it is becoming more and more apparent that the top offensive line recruit in Michigan for the class of 2010 is Paul Jorgenson of Dewitt High School. SpartanMag.com caught up with the 6-foot-7, 265-pound prospect last night and he gave us the latest details on his recruitment, including two new scholarship offers.

Jorgenson has seen a host of schools come through his high school the past few weeks and several schools have decided to offer him.

"My most recent offers are from Western Michigan and Duke," he said. "I now have nine offers."

In addition to the Broncos and the Blue Devils, Jorgenson also has scholarship offers from Northwestern Cincinnati, Stanford, Wyoming. Central Michigan, Toledo and Bowling Green.

What schools that have not offered have been in to school this month for the spring evaluation period?

"Illinois and Indiana are supposed to come in next week," Jorgenson said. "Michigan State, Wisconsin and Purdue have been in. Florida is supposed to come by as well."

Spartan Coach Dave Warner serves as the primary recruiter of Jorgenson for Michigan State.

With a solid list of offers to choose from Jorgenson is being pretty selective about his summer camp plans.

"I am going to wait and see just how interested the schools are before I commit to anything," he said. "I am still planning on going down to Florida's camp and I will be at Michigan State on June 12."

As far as favorites at this point Jorgenson is still evaluating the offers he has, and the schools that could offer him in the near future. He is not ready to name a top team or two.

One thing Jorgenson is focused on is getting ready for his senior year at Dewitt High School. Jorgenson informed SpartanMag.com that his team returns a solid core of starters, including 10 on offense, and they are expecting to have a good season.

"We should be pretty good," he said. "We have a lot of guys returning it will also just come down to how hard we work this summer."

Rivals.com recently came out with their position rankings. Interestingly Jorgenson was not listed as a 3-star prospect despite having superior offers than some of the players who were ranked. Don't be surprised if Jorgenson moves up the rankings when they are update this summer.

SpartanMag.com ranks him as the #16 prospect in Michigan for the class of 2010. One more scholarship will put him in double-digits range and that certainly qualifies him as one of the top players in Michigan for 2010.
