Gressel Hearing From NU

Centerville (OH) junior Brant Gressel has shot up in the recruiting world. Check out what the defensive tackle has to say about receiving his first BCS offer, from Louisville.

In the past couple of months, Centerville (OH) defensive tackle Brant Gressel has picked up offers from Bowling Green, Miami (OH), Ohio and Toledo. On Thursday, the junior received his first BCS offer, coming out of the Big East.

"Louisville offered me today," said Gressel. "It was a big surprise. I had not talked to them at all. I don't know much about them yet, but I hope to learn more."

The junior has not been to Louisville before, but is hoping to get there soon.

"I would really like to visit considering it's the biggest school to offer me, and they are in the Big East."

Interest in the 6-foot-2, 278 pound junior has picked up as he's been hearing from other schools around the Midwest.

"I'm hearing from Cincinnati a decent amount. Penn State and Northwestern have expressed some interest in me, as well as Western Kentucky. I'll also be visiting Illinois in a few weeks."
