Mount Prospect, Ill. three star ranked offensive lineman recruit Eric Hedstrom (6-foot-6, 265 pounds) will begin his senior season of basketball on Tuesday, yet football recruiting is never too far in the background for Hedstrom.
“I'm done with preseason basketball doubles," Hedstrom said. "We start our season on Tuesday in a Thanksgiving tournament."
Hedstrom has added an additional scholarship offer.
"I've received a scholarship offer from Minnesota. Both Minnesota and Vanderbilt have really started to show more and more interest and Vanderbilt could be close to offering me soon. Minnesota also has come on late but they have some great coaches and I'm going to give them some serious consideration."
Hedstrom, who has already made official visits to both Purdue and Northwestern this fall, might be able to fit in one last official visit.
"With my basketball schedule, fitting in my three remaining visits are going to be very tough. At this point I'm hoping to be able to get at least one more official visit in before I make my final decision. I'm looking at Navy, Arkansas, Michigan State, Nebraska and Tennessee as well as a few other schools for that last visit."
So does Hedstrom have any favorites?
"I've made official visits to Purdue and Northwestern so far, but I'm still looking at all of my options at this point and I haven't closed the door on any schools just yet."
