Big Ten school offers Rowell

Harrisburg (Pa.) Central Dauphin offensive guard Artie Rowell has picked up his third offer of the recruiting process. It happens to be his first from a Big Ten school.

As recently as a week ago Rowell was sitting on offers from Pitt and Temple, and while he was, and is, grateful for each of those offers, he was still hoping for more.

"A couple of days ago I was offered by Northwestern," Rowell said on Sunday. "I'm very interested in them. It's very high as an academic school and that's something I'm very interested in.

"I took a visit to Pitt on Friday and I really like Pitt. I just feel like I should really check out Northwestern. I don't want to regret not going. At this point it's really Northwestern and Pitt.

"There are schools that could move up, possibly, so that's just for right now."

Rowell pointed to schools such as Duke and Rutgers as those that might offer down the road.

"Pretty much at the end of May I should know which schools are going to offer me," he noted.

At the recent State College NIKE Camp, Rowell took home MVP honors among the offensive linemen present.
