"One of my top schools now is Central Florida. I also like Tech [Georgia Tech], Duke, Arkansas, Minnesota, Auburn and Clemson. All of those schools are at a medium interest."
Three schools, in particular, are staying in very close contact.
"Duke has been coming after me the hardest," he commented. "Oklahoma State has been coming after me hard, too. I'd say that Minnesota is also sticking out from other schools as far as showing me interest. The other schools are keeping up with me, but those three [Duke, Oklahoma State, Minnesota] have definitely stuck out."
Putnam is seeking a "dream offer" from a school right down the road.
"I'm still looking for an offer from Tech [Georgia Tech]," he said. "I'm just not sure what they're looking for because they've already offered another defensive end [Emanuel Dieke] from this area. I definitely want an offer from them though. If I got an offer from them they'd definitely be in my top five. That's a dream offer for me."
Putnam's next stop is Middle Tennessee June 8th.
