Trace Biskin is one of the better offensive linemen in California.
The 6-foot-6, 275-pounder from talented Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian picked up an offer from Purdue in the middle of the spring evaluation process and the Boilermakers definitely have impressed him. But it was Biskin's turn to impress somebody else.
Biskin, an all-area selection in 2006, just returned from a camp stop this past weekend in Tucson, Ariz. While he was at Arizona's camp, he impressed enough to walk away with a scholarship offer.
"He received the offer from Mike Stoops after Arizona's Elite football camp," Ron Biskin, Trace's father, said. "Trace is very interested in UofA. They really impressed him a lot when he was up there, and Trace was very excited to get the offer."
So why have Purdue and Arizona stepped up and offere Biskin?
That's an easy question to answer if you ask his coach, Bill Reddell.
"Trace could be special because he has the size and the athleticism of a D-I prospect," Reddell said. "He certainly passes the eye test. Both USC and Notre Dame liked what they saw of him in the weight room, and then others love what they see on his tape. He's got a chance to be a very good player on the next level."
Along with Arizona and Purdue, Biskin is getting attention from Arizona State, Washington, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State.
