After impressing earlier this spring at the Rivals.com Five-Star Academy with his 6-foot-5, 224-pound frame, Loveland, Ohio, tight end Brian Wozniak was one of the top tight ends this past Friday at the Columbus NIKE Training Camp.
Wozniak was definitely very fluid running his routes, he had good hands, showed surprisingly leaping ability to go up and get the ball, and generally did well throughout the day. It's no surprise at that he's already earned scholarship offers from Air Force, Akron, Bowling Green, Kent State, Miami of Ohio and Ohio.
Well, his offer list has grown even more after the NIKE Camp.
"Brian got a verbal offer from Toledo last week," John Wozniak, Brian's father, said. "Then coach Jeff Brohm from Louisville called Brian (Monday) with an offer. That's a really big offer, and Brian's excited about it."
Along with a great frame, Wozniak brings to the table some impressive physical numbers.
"I have a 4.7 40-yard dash time," he said. "I also can bench-press 275 pounds, and I have a 375-pound squat."
Not bad numbers for a kid that spends just as much time on the AAU basketball circuit in the spring and the summer as he does in the weight room.
"I'm keeping all my options open," he said. "I like both sports the same."
But there's plenty to like about him on the gridiron.
As a junior he was named his team's most valuable player after he had 22 receptions for 331 yards, 57 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two touchdowns. He was honored with first-team all-conference honors. In basketball, he was also named his team's MVP and all-conference.
"I'm a versatile player," Wozniak said. "I block well, and I can go up for the passes. I also follow the ball well. I can hit you hard, too. I think I'm also a good tackler."
