Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson offensive lineman Ricky Barnum recently picked up two additional scholarship offers and is getting interest from an additional in-state power.
"Boston College and Auburn have recently offered me," he said. "Florida just jumped on the bandwagon, too. I haven't talked to the coach from there yet, my head coach has been talking to me."
Does the 6-foot-4, 260-pounder have any interest in the Gators?

"I like them, but as far as going there I don't know because they got a good recruiting class last year, so they are stacked up," he said.
Barnum has already visited Auburn unofficially, but plans on returning in the future.
"I love the coaches," he said. "They could be best friends and they could be coaches some time."
Virginia Tech is another program Barnum commented on.
"When we went up to Virginia Tech, we got to know the coaches and everything," he said.
Miami also has offered Barnum and the Hurricanes are major players. Barnum was scheduled to attend the Hurricanes spring game this past weekend.
He also holds an offer from South Florida.
At this time, there is no leader.
"They are all even," he said. But they are all even."
