The month of May was an extremely productive time for Blake Hoffarber. Because of his impressive play on the court, the 6-foot-4, 180-pound shooting guard from Hopkins (MN) High School has seen his recruitment takeoff. Hoffarber has eight scholarship offers on the table and has a host of other high-major programs involved in his recruitment. The talented shooting guard prospect recently took an unofficial visit to an ACC School.
"Things are really picking up for me as far as my recruitment goes," said Hoffarber. "I have scholarship offers from Loyola-Chicago, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Delaware, William & Mary, Albany, Rice, Furman and Bucknell. I have also received phone calls from Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Kansas, Minnesota, Notre Dame and Wake Forest.
"I am really wide-open right now and I am just going to keep looking around at all of my options," he added. "I just want to see where I fit in best and what schools are serious about recruiting me. I don't have any leaders right now."
Prior to participating in the Tournament of Champions, Hoffarber took an unofficial visit to Wake Forest. According to the talented sharpshooter, it was a great experience to spend a little time with the coaching staff. Hoffarber also enjoyed being able to get a closer look at the campus.
"I visited Wake Forest the day before the Tournament of Champions got started," said Hoffarber. "I was able to meet with Coach Skip Prosser and we had a great time together. I liked what I saw and really loved the campus. Everything about the trip was just great. It was an awesome experience.
"Coach Prosser told me that he wanted to watch me again in July," he added. "I believe that Wake Forest is very interested in me, but they want to watch me play again. All of the schools recruiting me that have not offered are planning to watch me in July. That is going to be a big month for me."
Hoffarber is going to participate in the NBA Camp, ABCD Camp and the Big Time.
