Oak Park (Ill.) junior offensive line prospect Panan Tense (6-foot-4, 320 pounds) from Fenwick High School has been drawing plenty of recruiting interest this spring.
"Things have been going pretty well," Tense said. "I've been getting quite a bit of mail and I've made a few unofficial visits to Illinois this spring."
Tense talks about his recent suitors.
"I'm getting steady mail from Illinois, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Boston College, Northern Illinois, Michigan, Iowa Marshall and Indiana. NIU has sent a few hand-written letters and I've also received a few one off handwritten things."
Tense also talked about his latest unofficial visit to the Illinois spring game last Saturday.
"The spring game at Illinois was cool overall except that it was really cold out for the game. I had a chance to see how well the Illini are coming together this spring and I was really encouraged. I had a chance to talk with a few of the coaches at Illinois, including assistant coach Curt Mallory who's my recruiting coach at Illinois. I gave the coaches my junior tape on Saturday. The coaches at Illinois said that they really want me to camp with them this summer."
Speaking of camps, Tense is getting prepared for the Nike Camp in Ann Arbor on May 7th.
"I'm really looking forward and getting ready for the Nike Camp at Michigan. I'm going to the Nike Camp for sure, and then I'll look at going to a few college camps this summer."
