A quick look at his Twitter shows he's gotten offers from Illinois, Wyoming, Buffalo, CMU, BGSU, WMU, NIU, Illinois St.
He's taken a visit to Indian as well.

It should please a lot of the nay sayers on this board that we have offered a lot of players with multiple (6-10) offers. Let's see if we can lock them up.

Wyoming must have a coach with Illinois ties because you see that school on a lot of Chicago area kids. Then I looked and they have a Mallory on their staff. That probably explains it.

Marist played at Huskie Stadium against Loyola in one of the IHSA championship games last year.

Workout? Lol We're not a pro team. I do not believe the NCAA allows us to bring in a recruit for a workout (unless it's an organized camp/junior day).

I have asked this on a few boards I frequent... My neighbor was invited to come down for a workout by an SEC school, Kankakee area kid who is only a soph. First school to contact him

Well it's not an official workout but many times you'll see that QB's have thrown for a coach either at his high school or the college. I'm sure it's technically in compliance but may be skirting the edges.

Also offered his teammate Joshua Maize:

Northern Illinois is the latest school to offer 2017 QB @rocky_lombardi from West Des Moines Valley. Profile: https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects

NIU seems to be offering a lot more kids this year, including an Ohio State commit.

Based on the recruiting twitter feed we have 42 offers out, however your right we are still wayyyy behind Toledo and WMU. I guess it just feels like a ton after how slow last year was

Don't forget we probably will have a lot more scholarships to offer this year.
