"I got my 12th or 13th offer today," he said. "Louisville had sort of offered, but they came in to the school today and brought the paperwork."
"Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Arkansas, Alabama, Indiana, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Ole Miss, Florida, and a few others offered."
"If I had a top five, Michigan would be number one I guess. Then Ohio State next. And Florida, Alabama, and Minnesota."
"Michigan came in on Monday. They want me to come up to their camp. They said I would really have to fall on my face not to get an offer there."
"I'm going up to Ohio State either the middle of this month or in June. I'm definitely going up to the Ohio State football camp. The only way I wouldn't is if they offered before then."
The 6-foot-7 and 305 pound Zirbel has been a varsity starter since his freshman year when he played tight end. He has started at offensive tackle the past two seasons and led his team to a 9-3 record his junior year.
