Sometimes a coveted college football recruit tours a campus and the pieces to what can be a complicated process fall neatly into place.
This happened to Center Grove senior Nate Wozniak, the Trojans’ 6-foot-9, 255-pound tight end who has orally committed to attend the University of Minnesota.
“The No. 1 thing was that it just felt like the right place for me,” said Wozniak, who chose the Gophers over Purdue and Miami (Fla.). “It was everything about the football program from the coaches and players to where coach (Jerry) Kill is taking the program. School-wise, I love it there. They have an amazing business program.”
Along with Purdue and Miami, Wozniak also secured scholarship offers from Indiana, Iowa State, Maryland and Cincinnati. He is the only one of the 16 oral commitments so far in Kill’s 2013 recruiting class to hail from an Indiana high school.
