    According to Rivals today, Cory's top 5 is Alabama, Florida, Miami, Michigan, and Ohio State; he has offers from Alabama, Florida, Minnesota, and several others. Cory seems to like Michigan quite a bit, but had this to say about OSU:

    He plans on camping at Ohio State, amongst others.

    I can't wait to see some film on him.

    In a new Rivals update, Cory stated that his top 5 remains the same, and had this to say about his in-state school (University of Kentucky): on Cory Zirbel (6/7/04)

    InsideTheVille had several people that posted his family was from Big 10 country, Wisconsin prehaps, and that he was looking to play for sure in the Big 10.

    Zirbel was just named OL MVP at the Miami camp and was promptly offered by the Hurricanes. He now lists Miami and scUM as his co-favorites.

    He confirms scUM and Miami are co-favorites and tOSU is No. 3. :(

    Well considering he hasn't visited here yet and doesn't have an offer, being #3 doesn't seem all that bad.

    Here's a link to a Rivals article on Zirbel: on Cory Zirbel (6/23/04)

    Not much new; Cory plans on camping at Ohio State, and hopes to get an offer from the Bucks shortly thereafter.

    You've got to like a guy who is willing to come up and lay it on the line. I respect that a lot more than someone who says they've shown what they can do and don't need to go to camp. I hope the coaches are as impressed as the folks in Miami were. This would mean he had another great camp, and it sounds like the Bucks would have a good chance if they offered.

    Zirbel camped w/ tOSU on Sat and claims to have been offered. Even though tOSU is in his top 3 it still sounds like a scUM, scUMsouth battle.

    First I have heard of an offer to Zirbel. Anyone have a link. Another great option in what could potentially be an outstanding OL recruiting class.
