Blake Hoffarber, the 6-foot-4, 180-pound shooting guard from Hopkins (MN) High School has seen his recruitment heat up as of late. With several scholarship offers already on the table, a number of new schools are beginning to show an increased interest in Hoffarber.
"Things with Blake's recruitment are going well," said Hopkins head coach Ken Novak. "He has scholarship offers from Wisconsin-Green Bay, Delaware and Loyola Chicago. I know that coaches from Washington State, Stanford, Georgetown and Minnesota are planning to come down to watch Blake play this year.
"I am guessing that Blake will use all five official visits, but that's not something we have really talked much about," he added. "We are just looking to see what takes place with his recruitment. Blake is a good player that is only going to get better, so he is going to take his time and see what happens."
It should come as no surprise that Hoffarber has been a key component in terms of the success that Hopkins High School has achieved this year. Hoffarber is helping his team win in a variety of ways.
"Blake is definitely a big key to our success," said Novak. "We are 17-2 overall and we have a pretty good team. Blake is averaging 19-points, seven rebounds and five or six assists per game. He played the point guard position for us last year, but he is playing the shooting guard position this year.
"Blake has the ability to play either position for us," he added. "I really see him playing the shooting guard position in college, but he can play either and feels comfortable doing so."
