The offer list is growing quickly for 6-5, 225 pound tighe end prospect Nic DiLillo from Madison, Ohio.

"I have nine offers right now," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I have offers from Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Akron, Cincinnati, Maryland, Purdue, Clemson, Kansas and Wisconsin. I am also hearing from Michigan State, Michigan, Stanford, Ohio State and Northwestern."

When asked about his favorites, DiLillo responded, "Honestly they are all up there. No school is out of the picture. I like everybody."

What is the talented tight end looking for in a college?

"I am looking to see how they use the tight ends. I am looking for a good education. I want to go where football is part of the city. I want to go to a town where it is all about football," replied DiLillo.

The Tigers will get an unofficial visit from the prize recruit.

"I am going to visit Clemson next weekend," stated DiLillo. " Then I am going to Pittsburgh this weekend. I am going to take a couple more visits. I want to try to get to Maryland. I am also going to try to get to Michigan State. I really want to visit all of the schools that have offered."

The visits will be critical as DiLillo plans to have a decision in the next few months.

"I look to be committed by the summer. The offers are coming in fast. I got three last week. I didn't want to commit too early because I wanted to see what my options would be," stated DiLillo.

Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier is recruiting the star tight end for the Tigers.

"He is real cool," said DiLillo. "He is down to earth. It is like talking to one of your buddies. I get along with him real well."

DiLillo also had some positive comments about Clemson's offensive scheme.

"I like the kind of spread offense. I definitely want to line up and block a lot, but I also want to be able to catch some balls too. I want to go where they play the tight end in different position," he said.

Last season DiLillo caught 46 passes for 580 yards and four touchdowns.
