Kyle Koehne, a four-star offensive lineman from Indianapolis (IN) Cathedral, has offers from Iowa, Cincinnati, Indiana, NC State and Northern Illinois. Last week, Louisville added their name to the 6-6, 300-pound standout's list.

"They came up early last week and told my coach the offer letter was in the mail," said Koehne, who received the offer from the Cardinals last week. "It's a good school. They're pretty well known here in Indiana so I'll have to check it out more. I haven't been down there but I'd like to visit. We'll see though. I'm not sure yet."

Koehne says he's still sorting out his offers and isn't ready to name favorites just yet, though Indiana and Iowa appear strong with his recruitment.

"The coaches will be a big factor – I have to make sure I like the coach a lot and make sure he'll stay around during the time I'm in college," said Koehne, rated the No. 19 offensive tackle prospect nationally by Scout.com. "Then the program is important. Does it have good tradition and stuff like that?"

While Koehne plays tackle in high school, he's says his future will likely be as a guard in college. "I'm more of a heads down guy who goes for the kill blocks and for the linebackers. I play more like a guard than I do a tackle," he said.

"I'm a big guy," Koehne added. "I'm really quick for my size. That's my main thing. I'm really good at sustaining and finishing my blocks at the end of the play. I like to get to the linebackers and play power football. I'm trying to improve my strength and overall athleticism."

Koehne said he plans to camp at Ohio State, Florida Boston College, Notre Dame and Iowa.
