Tennessee Offensive Lineman Has Eight Offers

Memphis, Tenn. prospect Michael Oher is a big man. At 6-6, 340 pounds, Oher is an intimidating prospect. Oher claims eight offers and counting, and many more are likely on the way. Are the Irish interested in Oher? What did he have to say about Notre Dame? Irish Eyes found out the latest on Oher.

Michael Oher has had a busy spring so far. "I have offers from LSU, Tennessee, Ole Miss, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida State and Memphis," said Oher. "I've received a bunch of calls. All those I've mentioned and more."

We asked Oher if his offer from Notre Dame was in writing. "No, it was more of a verbal offer," he said. "The coach said it would be coming."

While Oher says he likes Notre Dame, it might be too far from home. "I like them, but it might be kind of far. I'll consider them, but they aren't in my top five right now," Oher said."

Who are the top five? "I'd say, Tennessee, LSU, Ole Miss, Florida State and Oklahoma," said Oher.

Oher says he'll be busy this summer. "I plan on going to a few camps," said Oher. "Oklahoma and LSU and probably Tennessee. I'm not sure if I'll take all my visits before deciding or not. I really don't know when I plan to decide."

Oher also has a self-reported 3.0 g.p.a and is planning on taking his test June 12th.

Comments: Oher didn't seem very interested in Notre Dame. He did say he spoke to a coach from Notre Dame, but he couldn't remember his name. Things could change, but we don't see Oher giving the Irish much consideration, at least at this point.
