Oak Park (Ill.) Fenwick junior offensive guard prospect Panan Tense (6-foot-4, 320 pounds) without question has some of the most impressive junior tape from the Land of Lincoln offensive line prospects this spring. Tense talks about his latest recruiting news and more.
"I received my first call a few nights ago," Tense said. "I spoke to the coaches from Illinois. I really enjoyed getting a chance to talk with the Illinois coaches on the phone. I've been to Champaign a few times now and I'm definitely interest in the Illini. Illinois also seems pretty interested in recruiting me as well."
Tense has also continued to draw a steady stream of college coaches this spring.
"We have had several college coaches who have made in school visits in May. I can't list all of the coaches who have been into school so far, but my head coach (Joe DiCanio) has been pretty busy. I know that NIU, Purdue, Western Michigan and Akron have been in school recently."
Tense is also getting ready for a busy summer camp schedule.
"I'm looking at camping this summer at Illinois, Northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Notre Dame. Those are the schools that I've set up for camps so far, and I might add a few more school if I can get them to work out with my schedule."
