Today's JCFootball.com Recruiting Blog has updates on several JUCO recruits who have either set up visits to see different schools, recently received offers or are getting looks from four-year coaches...

Itawamba CB Quinn Tiggs (2016) - Tiggs, a shutdown corner for the Indians as a freshman last fall, hauled in his fourth offer recently when Arkansas State joined Middle Tennessee State, South Alabama and Southern Mississippi in offering the rising defensive back prospect.

Hutchinson OT Tate Leavitt (2016) - Leavitt has continued to add offers to his list of suitors with two more coming in on Thursday. The two newest offers were from NC State and TCU. Those schools join the nine offers Leavitt already had from the likes of Alabama, Arizona State, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Kansas State, Missouri, Ohio and Texas Tech.

Long Beach DE Mat Boesen (2016) - Boesen's stock is on the rise. He recently hauled in his third offer, this one coming from Washington State. The Cougars joined the offers that the bounceback from Boise State already had from the likes of Marshall and Louisville.

Long Beach DE J.J. Allen (2016) - Boesen wasn't the only Viking that Washington State decided to offer. The Cougars also offered Allen who racked up 58 tackles, seven sacks, 17 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.
