Dublin (Ohio) Scioto four-star safety Bradley McDougald already had a slew of solid scholarship offers on his resume. Teams like Cincinnati, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Wisconsin have all offered him, and now that the spring evaluation period is here, more schools are jumping on board.
"I got an offer letter (Tuesday) from the University of Louisville," McDougald, who is 6-foot-1 and 188 pounds, said.
"I haven't talked to them on the phone yet. They just sent me some letters informing me about the school. I haven't had a lot of contact with them. I like Louisville I think it's a good program."

But as McDougald said before there doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency when it comes to making a decision.
"I am still not in any hurry," he said.
"It's still up in the air. Every time we talk, me and my coach and family we talk about schools and what would be right for me, then another offer rolls in. My coach and parents) don't care if I stay close or go far they just want what is best for me. I wouldn't say staying close matters. I think going away would keep me out of trouble in my neighborhood. It would stop me from seeing my family, but I would just have to get used to it."
There are a few schools that have been more diligent in their pursuit of McDougald.
"Mike Tressel stopped at my school, and he is the recruiter for Michigan State," he said. "I would have to say Indiana has been sending me the most information. They send the most hand written letters post cards and stuff. With e-mails and what not."
McDougald said he's open to playing both in the Big Ten and outside of the conference.
"It's not just the Big Ten," McDougald said. "That's not what I am basing my decision off of. I like Boston College and Kansas, and they are not in the Big Ten. I look at more of what the program is, rather then what conference they are in."
