Michigan is the latest offer for Andrus Peat, the Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol offensive tackle who has one of the most impressive lists of offers for any 2012 prospect in the country and more could be coming soon.
Peat, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound prospect whose brother Todd signed with Nebraska a few weeks ago, said he expects Florida to offer when he talks to the Gators' coaching staff on Tuesday.
Peat's list is too long to list but powerhouses from all the major conferences are included on it which could make his decision-making process a painstaking one.

There are a few schools already that Peat would like to visit - USC, Florida State and Texas are three he named - along with others that will strongly be considered throughout his recruitment. If Peat had his wish, he'd end things relatively early in the process but he also wants to make sure he's choosing the right college.
"I'm just going to let all the offers come in and from there start figuring out which schools I want to visit and then see who I'm seriously interested in," Peat said. "I'm trying to play it out right now, take it slow and see what happens.
"I think it would be nice to get it done early but I don't want to rush anything. I want to make sure I pick the right school. If I get out to some of these schools it will make it easier to make my decision but I don't want to rush it."
The Michigan offer is big, Peat said, mainly because of the program's tradition and its success of producing offensive linemen over the years. The Wolverines will definitely be considered as his recruitment continues.
"It's definitely a big offer with how much they've won over the years and they definitely put out a lot of good offensive linemen so it's one I'm looking at," Peat said.
There aren't many programs that haven't offered Peat yet but there are a few that he's waiting for like Ohio State, LSU and Tennessee. So many programs are already involved with him that he can basically pick any school in the country and go play there.
Will he pick the same school as his brother? Peat said that he's seriously considering Nebraska on its own merit and that having a sibling there couldn't hurt matters. But he's also going to research schools himself and he'll make the decision based on numerous things.
"I'm definitely considering Nebraska, too," Peat said. "Me and Todd don't have to go to the same school but if that's the right place it would be good for me. Just because he's there doesn't mean I have to be there though."
