"Things are starting to pick up, I got a new offer from New Mexico today, so I have eight offers now," John Wienke said. "Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico are my newest offers."
Kentucky, Ball State, Miami (OH), Northern Illinois and Western Michigan have also offered the 6-foot-5, 215 pounder to date. In 14 games as a junior, Wienke threw for 3,200 yards and 33 touchdowns.
"I'm not really looking for a particular offense, but I'd like to throw the ball, or at least be 50-50," Wienke said. "I'd like to start narrowing down my list here in the next three weeks and gear towards making a commitment, soon."
The Wildcats were the first school to offer Wienke a scholarship and has continued to express serious interest in the Tuscola (Ill.) gunslinger.
"My Dad and I really like Kentucky," Wienke said. "It's a program that we've watched alot growing up. We've always liked there program there. Although I live in Big Ten country, I know all about the SEC. It's one of the toughest conferences in the country, year in and year out."
