Miami (Fla.) Braddock offensive tackle Robert Conyers began today by landing an offer from West Virginia. Then came word from Cincinnati they were offering. Western Michigan followed suit soon after and the day was capped with Western Kentucky pulling the trigger. When all was said and done, Conyers offer list had quickly expanded from seven to eleven teams.
The news wasn't that shocking to the 6-foot-5, 277-pound offensive tackle who wrapped up his spring on Wednesday night when Braddock squared off against Plantation.
"It wasn't that much of a surprise because most of the coaches had told me that if they saw what they wanted during our spring game, that they were going to offer me," Conyers said. "I think Duke, possibly Georgia and Florida, as well as a couple other ones may offer me soon."
Entering the day, Conyers held offers from Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Illinois, Marshall, Memphis, South Florida, and Wake Forest. At this stage, Conyers says amongst the schools that have offered an in-state program is standing out.
"USF," Conyers said. "They just have a good coaching staff. They have a good program. It is up and coming. I like the way they are recruiting me. They are recruiting me positively, not saying anything negative about other schools, and I like that."
While the Bulls have made a good early impression, Conyers isn't in a rush to end the process or even narrow things down.
"I am just going to let it continue to develop and see who else I get," Conyers said. "I am planning to attend some camps and see some schools. I want to see what I like about schools and what I don't like so I can just compare some places."
Conyers, who has previously visited Florida during the recruiting process, plans to visit South Florida, Duke, Georgia, and some other schools during the summer.
