It might be easier to name the schools that haven't either stopped by to see five-star Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage cornerback Tarvarus McFadden or reached out to him via phone or social media since the dead period ended.
Two of the biggest schools to make contact and extend offers over the past few weeks include perennial contenders Alabama and Ohio State.
"I got offered by Ohio State and Alabama recently," McFadden said. "I wouldn't say I was waiting on them, but those are two good ones to have and I'm glad it ended up happening."
McFadden said he's benefited from the recruiting craze of pursuing taller cornerbacks, and Alabama has made it clear he fits the mold of the players the Tide like to have in their secondary.
"They always tell me that I fit their program," the 6-foot-3 defensive back said. "I guess big corners is the new thing these days so a lot of them want me to play corner."
The Buckeyes are continuing to make South Florida a priority in recruiting and McFadden said he still has to learn more about the school.
"Ohio State they're also a good team," he said. "They go undefeated almost every year. They've been recruiting our quarterback for a while and he's been telling me stuff about them. I don't really know too much about them personally, but I'll just wait to see how that goes."
As far as who expects to see come by school, McFadden said he never knows who to expect or when they'll be coming by.
"They always end up showing up," he said. "I never know when they're coming."
Other schools to offer over the past week include Miami, Wisconsin and Louisville.
McFadden is planning his next unofficial to Florida State for the Seminoles' junior day event next month. McFadden said LSU, Georgia, Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama and Ohio State are all planning on visiting in the coming months.
