Northwestern recently offered Warren Miles Long but ever since then the Union City (Calif.) James Logan running back has not heard from any other schools.
It is definitely puzzling to the 6-foot, 190-pound prospect especially since he had a big-time junior season and already has a Big Ten offer.
"There really hasn't been anything else," Long said. "I haven't heard anything else yet from any other schools.

"I guess good things come to those who wait. I'm looking on Rivals and I see some players with 30-some offers and I just don't get it. I don't know what the criteria are for more offers."
Long, who rushed for 1,094 yards and 16 touchdowns in his junior season averaging nearly 10 yards per carry, said he's really waiting for an offer from Stanford.
The Cardinal is definitely his favorite team and he hopes to hear more from that coaching staff soon. He's answered some preliminary mail from Stanford but no offer has been discussed yet.
"I'm really waiting for Stanford," Long said. "Northwestern is option No. 2 because the main thing would be Stanford.
"I'm from the Bay Area. My mother works in Palo Alto. I'm from San Jose and that's the big college out here. Before Northwestern offered me I was sending out questionnaires to every school. The running back coach (Mike Sanford) from Stanford sent me an e-mail to send another one."
Maybe one reason why things have slowed down for Long, who also finished with 53 tackles and two interceptions this past season, is because he has stopped sending out film. He's considering another round of mailings but isn't sure if it's been effective.
"I kind of slowed down on sending out film because I figured college coaches get thousands of films every day," Long said.
