Another week and Shaker Heights (Ohio) defensive tackle Donovan Munger is celebrating two more BCS offers, bringing the total number of scholarships offered to 11 for the 6-3, 278-pound prospect.
The latest additions come from Penn State and Tennessee. The Nittany Lions offered on Monday and Munger had considered visiting State College this weekend.
"I talked to the coaches and was trying to get down there for the junior day, but it is too late for the distance and I don't think I am going to be able to make it," Munger said.
Tennessee's offer came in on Wednesday and was the first time he had talked to Volunteer's coaches in several months.
"I talked to Coach [Peter] Sirmon last year, then he got a coaching job in Washington and I hadn't talked to Tennessee since," Munger said. "They called my coach [Wednesday] and I called the coach back. He told me he liked my film."
Munger is considering a trip down to Tennessee this spring for a practice or possibly even the Vols' spring game. His next visit will liked be to Michigan, a team that has yet to offer.
"I might go to Michigan on Monday, but I'm not 100 percent sure," Munger said. "I talked to [Wolverines] Coach [Greg] Mattison on Wednesday."
The offers from Penn State and Tennessee join previous tenders from the likes of Auburn, Duke, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and West Virginia. At this stage of the process, Munger is taking the advice of his coach and letting his recruitment play out while he focuses on the tasks at hand.
"My coach is telling me to not get caught up in it, keep working hard, keep my grades up and focus on doing what I have to do right now," Munger said.
Visiting college campuses is certainly part of his plans this off-season, and ideally he would like to have a decision made before the start of his senior season.
"I want to, but I'm not sure if that is going to happen," Munger clarified. "I just don't want my senior season as stressful as these other guys have made it."
