Miami (Fla.) Miami Central defensive tackle Jordan Hinojosa racked up a few offers during the spring, but doesn't know his complete list at this time.
"(Miami Central) Coach (Telly) Lockett says I have at least 10 offers," "I know I have Michigan State, Wake Forest, and Minnesota."
This past week, Hinojosa camped with a team that has yet to offer - Florida State - and enjoyed the experience in Tallahassee.

"It was a great experience for me," Hinojosa said. "I learned a lot from Coach (Odell) Haggins. He talked a lot about hand-technique. Hands, hands, hands, hands. He talked about getting your hands on the offensive linemen, trying to make a move, and getting by the lineman. He said try not to bullrush, but if it works, it works, and then do it at times. He talked a lot about hand placement."
On Saturday, he will camp at another in-state institution that has yet to offer, the Miami Hurricanes.
At this stage, an out-of-state school is his top option and has already offered.
"Right now so far I am really liking Minnesota," Hinojosa said. "Point being, I have built a real good relationship with Coach (Bill) Miller, Coach (Jeff) Phelps, and Coach (Jerry) Kill. My chances of starting as a freshman are very good right now. I am hoping to visit them in July and camp there."
The Golden Gophers have already acquired a commitment from Miami Central linebacker Josh Ballesteros. They are also heavily involved with fellow teammate, linebacker Brian Nicholson. While Hinojosa just arrived at Central during the spring, transferring from Miami (Fla.) Archbishop Carroll, the 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive lineman has enjoyed his time with his new teammates and wouldn't be opposed to playing college football with them.
"Working with those guys is amazing," Hinojosa said. "We are a family."
