Blake Sorensen Commits to Northwestern
Sorensen will join Eden Prairie teammate Bryce McNaul, who previously committed to Northwestern.
"I committed Tuesday night. It was a no-brainer. The coaches are great. The academics are great. It is a Big Ten school. I liked everything about it."
Sorensen said that he did not plan on making his college choice so early, but decided that Northwestern was the place for him.
"I planned to decide after a few games, but I thought what was I waiting for. It had everything I wanted, so why wait."
Sorensen said that he picked Northwestern over San Diego State and Iowa State. He also had offers from Colorado State and Wyoming.
Sorensen said he attended the Minnesota team camp, but did not received an offer from the Gophers.
"I ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at the camp, but nothing really happened for Bryce and I with the Gophers."
Sorensen and his Eden Prairie teammates will open the season Thursday against Apple Valley. Eden Prairie is one of the favorites for the Class AAAAA title and Sorensen is looking forward to the season opener.
"It'll be fun."
Sorensen is a rare three-sport athlete who also plays baseball (catcher) and basketball (guard).
Sorensen said that he mostly played JV on the basketball team, but will be asked to carry more of the load this year as the Eagles finished 24-3 lost most of the top players from a squad that lost in the section finals to state champion Hopkins.
"We have no one coming back."
