Westphal lands first offer
Just two short days ago we updated you on the recruiting of Westphal. To recap Tyler is the son of Menasha (Wis.) head football coach Brad Westphal. This past season Westphal earned 1st Team All-Fox Valley Association honors. He was also named to the Appleton Post Crescent All-Area team. On the defensive side of the ball he had 87 total tackles and 11.5 sacks. He also plays tight end. With his 6-foot-6, 230 pound frame Westphal projects on either side of the ball as a high level recruit.
One of the schools that had been actively recruiting Westphal was the University of Virginia. As of today they have offered him a scholarship.
While this is his first offer, and possibly the first to a junior in Wisconsin, Westphal's process is just beginning. He will visit the University of Iowa for their Junior Day, March 4th. He has also been in contact with Wisconsin, Flordia, Florida State, Northwestern and Minnesota just to name a few.
