2012 Commit #2: Huskers Add Illinois WR Jordan Westerkamp

2009 Husker Cheerleader


(Westerkamp becomes the Huskers' 2nd oral commitment after KC's Michael Rose.)

Westerkamp is a 6'2" 190lb wide receiver from Montini Catholic HS in Lombard, IL. He caught 89 passes for 1,631 yards and 23 TD's as a junior. Over the last two years, he has scored 49 TD's and averaged around 20 YPC as Montini has won back to back Illinois 5A state titles. His father, Bob, played for Illinois, as well as Montini, and Jordan has been surpassing many of his school records. (Video highlights to follow for both Westerkamp and Rose)

Jordan received offers from 17 schools including Arizona, Iowa, West Virginia and Michigan St.  This is a key commitment for the Huskers as WR recruiting has been a thin area recently, they having signed just four in the last three years with two of them from the JUCO ranks (Kinnie and Baptitste).

(Kenny Bell is now a WR but was recruited as an athlete.)

 

Michael Rose from Rockhurst High in Kansas City became the Huskers 1st oral commitment in July of 2010 before his junior year, although after Mike Ekeler left for Indiana, it can probably be called a soft commitment at best. After reaffirming his commitment to the Huskers in March, he took a visit to KU in April and appears to have reopened his recruitment although describing the Huskers as still being in the lead. A visit to Iowa could be in his future and Southern Cal has offered him recently as well.

Rose is a top national talent and these other schools will continue to pursue him up to signing day next February. Pelini, Els and Garrison will have their work cut out for them to resolidify this commitment.
