With Signing Day completed, most of the attention now turns towards the class of 2010. With new offers being handed out frequently and junior days happening every weekend, stay up with all the news from around the midwest.

Dyjuan Lewis - WR - Indianapolis Pike (Ind.)
Pike head coach Derek Moyers reported to Scout.com yesterday that his star receiver Lewis has been offered by Illinois. That is his second Big Ten offer he has received recently, with Michigan State offering last week. The 6'2, 190-lb junior is now into double digits as the Illini offer is his 10th.

Will Hagerup - P - Whitefish Bay (Wisc.)
It is not often that specialists pick up multiple early offers, but Hagerup is now up to two. After picking up his first scholarship offer from Iowa State a couple weeks back, he scored one from Purdue. The 6'4, 215-lb Hagerup has been rated the top junior punter in the nation by Kohl's Kicking Camp.

Austin Gray - LB - Warren Fitzgerald (Mich.)
A few weeks back, we told you about his recruitment heating up as offers came from Indiana, Illinois (verbal) and others. We also told you about his busy schedule and now he has added to it. According to Fitzgerald head coach Jason Byers, Austin could receive a Michigan State offer this weekend at the Spartans' junior day, then he is off to Illinois and Iowa on the 6th and 7th, Michigan on the 13th and the new one, Wisconsin for a spring practice on the 25th.

Ishmael Thomas - LB - Detroit Renaissance (Mich.)
Yesterday, we told you about Thomas, one of the top junior linebackers in Michigan. Afterwards, Renaissance assistant coach Antoine Edwards told Scout.com that Thomas was nearing his first offer from Central Michigan. The Chippewas have already offered his teammate Mylan Hicks and the Phoenix expect Thomas will be next.

Jeremy Jackson - WR - Ann Arbor Huron (Mich.)
This Michigan commitment was offered by Tennessee just yesterday. "I talked to Coach Kiffin," he said, "They called me out of class. I know he was an NFL coach and they run a pro style offense.” Even with the offer, Jackson says he is still 100% committed to the Wolverines.
