An elusive, pass-catching tight end at 6-foot-4, 230-pounds, Mark Birmingham has collegiate coaches eager to get their hands on him and host him for a visit in the near future to help solidify their standing in his recruitment.
"Recruiting has been going well and I hold 12 offers," Birmingham said. "The main ones I would say are Florida State, Miami, Florida, Duke, North Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin."
The Virginia native boasted a scholarship offers from Al Golden's coaching staff on Tuesday, which was a special moment that brought joy to both parties.
"The offer came in about three days ago when my coach gave me a call about the news," Birmingham said. "After that, I called (tight ends) coach (Larry) Scott and we kind of talked for a bit. We were both psyched about it and he wants me to come down.
"The main thing for me would be that it's such a tight end university. What they've done with tight ends is awesome."
Birmingham says he has no leaders in his recruitment, and plans on attending a camp at Florida later this summer to round out his visit plans for the summer.
