The No. 8 rated tight end in the country Jeff Cumberland, like many other high school players at this time of year, is shifting his focus to his senior season rather than his constantly changing recruiting process.
That has not stopped new offers from arriving on his door with the latest coming from a school he was waiting on. The No. 12 rated player in the state of Ohio was thrilled to see this particular Big Ten school send an offer his way after taking in a camp.
"Michigan State finally came in with one," Cumberland said. "It just makes me look at them even more but it also makes my decision harder."
Cumberland, a four-star rated Rivals250 member, is planning on getting things down to a manageable number by the midway point of the football season. After the season ceases, he'll set up his official visits, take them, and then have his decision made.
"I'd like to get it down to at least three or four teams," Cumberland said about cutting his list. "The offers keep coming and it makes it harder for me to have to decide or even think about visits."
As for his new offer, they fall in there with the likes of Minnesota, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, and others as the current scholarships in his possession.
Right now the focus is on the first game that is a little over a week away.
"Both of our first games are important for us because they're big teams and it really will help us get the ball rolling as we head towards the playoffs," he said. "The season is right around the corner now."
Cumberland recorded 19 receptions that included eight touchdowns during his junior season.
