It has been a busy few weeks for Tony Springmann but the offensive tackle from Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Dwenger isn't complaining because it just means he's received more offers.
Springmann, a 6-foot-6, 257-pound prospect who performed well at the U.S. Army National Combine, picked up an offer from Stanford Thursday, a surprising development since the Cardinal had not been in much contact recently.
The offer, Springmann said, came through an e-mail from special teams coordinator Brian Polian.

"I was hearing from them maybe once or twice a week they would send a letter but the last two or three months I hadn't heard anything from them up until today," Springmann said.
"It said they reviewed my tape and they liked it a lot and they wanted to go over my grades and they thought I could play for Stanford."
Since the new offer was just received, Springmann said it's still too early to say if or when he'd visit Stanford but there certainly seems to be mutual interest. There's a chance he could take a trip to Palo Alto this summer.
"Coach (Jim) Harbaugh is a very good coach," Springmann said. "I don't know him personally yet but I'm definitely considering Stanford. It's a very impressive school as well as a football program.
"I'm not really sure as of right now (about a visit). My summer is pretty much open right now. I don't have any camps set in stone so maybe I'll take a week or a few days this summer to get out there."
Options have become plentiful in the last few weeks for Springmann, who also lists offers from Boston College, Duke, Indiana, Louisville, Michigan State, Purdue and Wake Forest. It's been a busy - but incredibly fruitful - time for the Indiana lineman.
"The last few weeks have been pretty hectic with multiple offers coming in," Springmann said. "I'm just taking it all in stride and I'm enjoying it."
