"Cincinnati, Akron, Bowling Green, Kent State, Michigan State, Indiana, and Iowa have offered," Canton (Ohio) GlenOak linebacker and tight end Brandon Long said. "So I have seven offers right now."
"All those schools called. And Ohio State called twice. Ball State, Connecticut, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, a bunch of schools called."
"At this point Michigan State, Indiana, Iowa, Cincinnati and Ohio State are my top choices. Ohio State is No. 1 right now."
"I leave Saturday for an official visit to Michigan State for the Michigan State-Notre Dame game."
"I'm talking to Iowa. I'll probably set up an official visit with them. I'm not sure other than that. Maybe Cincinnati."
"Me and my coach will sit down around the middle of the season. I'll probably take my visits and decide sometime after the season."
"We're 2-1. I'm playing mostly defense right now. I have five sacks, a blocked punt, and about 30 tackles so far."
The 6-foot-2 and 220 pound Long made 32 solo tackles and had 36 assists during his junior season. Long is the No. 32 prospect in the state of Ohio in the Rivals.com player rankings.
