"It's pretty much Ohio State, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Tennessee," Murray, Ky., offensive lineman Cory Zirbel said when asked about his top five schools. "LSU was one of my top schools, but not anymore."
"I went to Oklahoma and I like it a lot. LSU was least on my list so I replaced them with Oklahoma. The first weekend in October I have an official visit set up with Oklahoma. It's Oct. 2."
"And I'm going to try and get to those other four for official visits. I'm thinking I'll pretty much make official visits to Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma obviously, and maybe Tennessee."
"I'd say Michigan is probably my favorite. I'm not real sure who is next after that. It's not a big lead. It wouldn't take too much for the other schools to be right there with them."
The 6-foot-7 and 301 pound Zirbel is the No. 12 offensive tackle prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of Kentucky.
Zirbel has been a varsity starter since his freshman year when he played tight end. Zirbel has played tackle since and is also starting at noseguard his senior season. He has led Murray to a 3-0 record, grading out in those three games at 94% blocking efficiency.
