INDIANAPOLIS -- By the end of the week, Kentucky could have another new offer out to an Ohio prospect.

Westerville (Ohio) South tight end Darryl Long finalized plans to visit Lexington this weekend. He was originally unsure if he would be able to make it, as he only spoke with Wildcats assistant coach Vince Marrow last week. Marrow wants Long to visit this coming weekend, and Long worked it out so that he can travel to Kentucky.

Marrow, who recruits several Ohio prospects, is also the Wildcats’ tight ends coach.

Hours after Westerville (Ohio) South tight end Darryl Long received an offer from Pittsburgh, another BCS program followed suit.

The Class of 2014 tight end talked Monday with Illinois recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Alex Golesh, who tendered him an offer.

"He said he loved the way I've been playing," Long said of his conversation with Golesh. "He liked how I showed out at their camp."

Pitt tight ends coach Joe Rudolph offered Long earlier in the evening, giving the 6-foot-5, 217-pound junior his first BCS offer. Ohio was his first offer and came during the summer after a camp.

This summer, Darryl Long (Westerville, Ohio/Westerville South) moved to tight end. The move is paying dividends for Long, who added offer No. 2 on Monday.

Pittsburgh assistant coach Matt House visited the school earlier in the day Monday and let Long know to give tight ends coach Joe Rudolph a call. When Long did, Rudolph gave him the good news.

“I got off the phone with him not too long ago,” Long said. “He liked my tape, said he liked I was versatile and can block and catch real good. They pulled my grades and saw what my grades are and I took the SAT and said I have a lot going for me right now.”
