Backowski lands first offer

Foley, Minn., offensive lineman Paul Backowski continues to draw interest from recruiters. In fact his first scholarship offer has come in.
"Wyoming, Iowa State, and Iowa have been to my school," Backowski said. "Nebraska's coming on Tuesday and Arkansas on Friday."
"Northwestern's been here too. Indiana has been here. Notre Dame is coming in two weeks. And Minnesota is supposed to come out. And I get mail from Wisconsin."
"I haven't cut any schools out. It's still early in the recruiting process."
"I have an offer from Wyoming."
"I still have to figure out my summer camps. But I know I'm going to Minnesota's for the full four days."
The 6-foot-7 and 245 pound Backowski started at offensive right tackle and defensive tackle during his junior season. He is a fine athlete who is also a varsity starter in basketball and a fine shot and disc thrower in track.
