Offers pouring in for Futch

After a stellar showing at the Miami NIKE Combine on Super Bowl Sunday, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna linebacker Jordan Futch has seen his stock rise. Multiple programs have stepped forward with scholarship offers and more are on the way.

"I've had a couple of schools offer," he said. "Auburn just offered me. South Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, Georgia and Wisconsin have offered. N.C. State, Boston College, Colorado and Miami (Fla.) all should be on the way."

At the NIKE Combine, the 6-foot-3, 202-pounder put up some impressive numbers, clocking a 4.58-second 40-yard dash, a 4.16 in the shuttle, a 34-inch vertical leap and 13 reps on the bench press.

"Right now, I'm really open," he said. "If I had to make a top five, it would be Miami, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida State and Auburn."
