Three-star defensive tackle Allen Love has seen his number of scholarship offers climb above a dozen strong, but the Birmingham (Ala.) Huffman prospect was hoping for one to join the mix and it recently did.
Western Kentucky joined the race to land the 6-foot-2, 280-pound tackle's services in late February.
"That was great," he said. "That was an offer I had been waiting for and really was excited about it."
In addition to WKU, Love has also picked up offers from Colorado State, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Memphis, NC State, Purdue, Southern Miss and others.
His frequent communication with the Hilltoppers staff and the added attention that they have expressed in him has given a strong impression.
"It's just a offer I was looking forward to and the coaches show lots of love," he said. "They hit me up almost everyday."
He's recently started to visit a number of the schools that are expressing an interest and hopes to visit The Hill "this summer."
