Four offers are already in for Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward safety Solomon Warfield, but those numbers could be on the verge of seeing a significant increase based upon the amount of new attention directed Warfield's way.
Offers have already come in from Arizona, Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo. The schools showing new interest include Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, West Virginia and Cincinnati. He is looking to visit some of those programs this spring.
"I want to go to a spring practice for Indiana and most likely I will end up going to Michigan and Michigan State for their practices too," Warfield said.

Warfield was clear that he does not have any favorite schools at this stage of the process, but did note that Arizona and Michigan State have specifically piqued his attention early.
Warfield has talked with Michigan State about what they want to see out of him before a scholarship offer is extended, but he is hoping to make it their sometime this spring as well so he can check out the campus.
"I like the Spartans and I have to go down for a camp," he said. "I'll probably go their this summer, but I have never seen their football facilities or anything and I just want to see the school. I've heard a lot of great things."
Being one of the first schools to extend him an offer has certainly endeared Warfield to the Arizona program, but he also is very high on their location and is looking to make a trip to the school.
"I would love to go out to Arizona, but that would probably be after football season," Warfield said. "Me and my dad went out there on Jan. 1 for a combine. We didn't have a chance to go to the school, but we were out there and it was so nice. I love hot weather. I know it is probably extremely hot during the summer, but I don't mind it."
The 6-0, 170-pound Warfield is a hard-hitting defensive back who plays bigger than his listed size. He could project at cornerback or safety at the next level, but will likely stay in the safety role in college.
