Division I football recruiting can be a colorful process.
Web pages featuring everything from bar graphs to national position rankings to video highlights from actual games posted have become part of the process.
It’s here Center Grove senior Nate Wozniak is big in our point-and-click world.
The sure-handed 6-foot-10, 242-pound tight end has so far received offers from seven programs, with Indiana, Purdue, The “U” (Miami, Fla.), Maryland, Iowa State, Minnesota and Cincinnati.
Wozniak, who caught 20 passes for 321 yards and five touchdowns in the Trojans’ run-oriented wing-T offense this season, insists Purdue and Miami remain the leaders for his services. This isn’t much of a departure from August.
“I kind of put the recruiting behind me during the season because I wanted to focus on how my high school team was doing,” said Wozniak, whose sixth-ranked Center Grove squad lost to No. 1 Lawrence Central 28-15 in Friday’s Class 5A semistate. “In December I’m going to take one official visit to Purdue, and sometime that month I’m going to visit Miami.”
Where Wozniak ranks on a national scope depends on the recruiting service doing the evaluating.
