His teammate and classmate George Brown has surpassed 40 total scholarship offers, but Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods linebacker David Long is starting to build his own offer sheet.
The 5-foot-11, 209-pound Long holds five offers now from Illinois, Cincinnati, Ohio, Kent State and Toledo. He is also optimistic that more schools will join that list in the near future based on conversations he has had with college coaches.
"I'm supposed to be hearing back from some coaches real soon because the 2014 class is getting finished up," Long said. "I am supposed to hear from Coach (Charlie) Strong, who went to Texas. Coach (Harlon) Barnett from Michigan State and Missouri are also coaches I am supposed to be hearing from soon."
Indiana is another school Long has had significant contact with in the past, and they are among the Big Ten schools showing the most interest.
"They show a lot of interest," Long said of Indiana. "Them and Michigan State are really hard on me. I haven't talked to (Michigan State) since before the dead period, but I should be hearing a lot more after the dead period."
Long expects to visit both Indiana and Michigan State for junior days this winter. Georgia and Missouri are two other schools he identified as likely junior day visits.
A three-star prospect and the No. 26 ranked player in the state of Ohio's 2015 class, Long is coming off a junior season in which he led his team in tackles with close to 100.
