Zach Hovey, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound senior tight end from Eden Prairie High School has added another offer to his list as Miami (Ohio) became the newest one on Thursday night.
"Coach Martin offered and has had very positive things to say. I am headed there on an official visit the weekend of the 17th. He said that they looked at film of hundreds of guys and liked mine like the best."
Hovey has several other offers including New Mexico, Wyoming, Florida Atlantic, Bucknell, Cornell, Penn and Holy Cross. He also has preferred walk-on offers from Minnesota and Wisconsin.
However, he has chosen to see more of Oxford.
"I had a lot of schools offer an official visit that weekend but ended up deciding to go to Miami that weekend because Coach Martin has been so persistent and likeable and Miami is a great academic school."
As for future visits, Hovey has at least one planned.
"I will meet with Coach Kill at his office and am weighing other official visit offers like Wisconsin but am not sure where I will go beyond the University of Miami on January 17."
