Another Big Ten school is interested in Lemont junior wide receiver Flynn Nagel. Purdue recently
became the latest school to offer him a scholarship, joining Illinois and Indiana, among others.

‘‘Our area recruiter, coach Jafar Williams, contacted me and said that the head coach [Darrell Hazell] had watched my film and that he was very impressed,’’ said Nagel, who transferred from Marist in January. ‘‘And they said that they would like to offer me [a scholarship].’’

Even though Nagel is getting plenty of attention from other Big Ten schools, the Boilermakers’
offer really interested him.

‘‘I was extremely excited,’’ Nagel said. ‘‘I may major in engineering, so Purdue is definitely a great school for that. Also, I look forward to building a strong relationship with the coaching staff and am excited to visit.’’

Nagel has yet to set any dates, but he said he intends to visit some schools that have made him offers.

Reams gets two offers

Warren junior tight end Caleb
Reams is beginning to make a splash on the recruiting scene. He has picked up scholarship offers from Toledo and Colgate.

‘‘Honestly, I was shocked,’’ Reams said. ‘‘I never had really talked to Toledo before that day. Coach [Matt Campbell] just said he really enjoyed my film and asked me to call him, so I did. He was telling me about the program and then also put in that I have a scholarship offer from his school.’’

The 6-3, 220-pound Reams also has received interest from Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Purdue, among others. He said coaches have passed along positive feedback throughout the recruiting process.

‘‘They mostly like my size and being able to get out in the pass game at the size I am,’’ he said. ‘‘And they say my speed at the size I am is unique.’’

Colgate likes Gasiorowski

Colgate has evaluated and
offered scholarships to several talented area players, including Glenbard North junior quarterback Brett Gasiorowski, who picked up his first offer from the Raiders.

‘‘It was an amazing feeling to get that first offer, especially from a school like that,’’ Gasiorowski said. ‘‘They offer a great mix of academics and football, and that’s a big thing that I will look for in a school.’’

Dew-Treadway adds another

Bolingbrook junior defensive end Micah Dew-Treadway added his second scholarship offer in two weeks, this one from Western Michigan. Other schools that have offered scholarships include Mississippi State, Purdue and Bowling Green.
