Shortridge With 16 Offers

Loxahatchee (Fla.) Seminole Ridge defensive tackle Kyle Shortridge saw his offer total raise to 16 today when Texas A&M extended a scholarship to the 6-foot-3, 275-pound prospect.

"I got offer number 16 from Texas A&M," Shortridge declared today.

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive tackle has been adding new offers seemingly every day. Last week he added offers from Tulane, Cincinnati, FAU, Iowa State and UConn in the span of three days.

Shortridge also claims offers from Bowling Green, Georgia State, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Minnesota, Mississippi State, USF, WVU and Western Kentucky.'s Chad Simmons saw Shortridge perform earlier this month at the Orlando Nike Football Training Camp and came away impressed.

"He was very quick off the ball," Simmons wrote. "He started off low, he has a quick first step, and he showed a number of moves. He took in coaching and he responded with a great day."
