Warren tight end Caleb Reams’ recruitment is picking up steam.

Reams received early offers from Toledo and Colgate and has garnered more interest.

“I love Toledo already even though it’s early on,’’ Reams said. ‘‘It is going to be good going back for an overnight visit. I also want to go visit Colgate, the first school that offered me. I would like to go see Illinois real soon, too.”

Most recently, Reams visited Western Michigan and picked up his third offer while on campus.

“I loved everything about it,” Reams said. “Coach [P.J.] Fleck is awesome. I love his fiery personality, I loved the campus life and how the team operated.”

The offer wasn’t as surprising for Reams as the first two, because the Broncos had dropped some hints to the 6-3, 230-pound junior.

“I had a feeling it was coming while I was talking to Coach [Fleck],” Reams said. “But it was a tremendous feeling, a great feeling.”

Williams racking up offers

Gordon Tech defensive lineman Raequan Williams has picked up offers from Connecticut, Penn State and Arizona State.

“My favorite part has been just watching the schools that I had dreamed about playing for contact me now,” said Williams, a three-star recruit.

“That is pretty cool.”

Williams, a 6-5, 265-pounder, reports offers from 11 schools, including Illinois and Iowa, and is in beginning to plan visits.

“I am about to take all my visits in the next little bit, because basketball season is over,’’ Williams said.

Vejvoda has two

Providence junior tight end Nate Vejvoda recently pick up offers from Toledo and Western Michigan.

“I received word via Twitter and Facebook, as well as my high school coach to call [tight ends/special teams coach Bryan] Gasser from Toledo and [assistant coach Brian] Callahan from Western Michigan,” said Vejvoda, a 6-5, 210-pounder. “They offered me over the phone once I called them.”

Weekend Visits

This past weekend, several of the area’s top prospects took visits to schools including Iowa, Wisconsin and Notre Dame. four-star tight end David Edwards of Downers North and four-star receiver Miles Boykin of Providence headlined the list by taking trips to Wisconsin.

The two players will take additional visits in the coming weeks, including Boykin’s trip to Notre Dame on Saturday.
