When Plant football coach Robert Weiner said he expected there to be a whirlwind of activity with the Panthers in the final days leading up to National Signing day, he wasn’t kidding.

Right now, the offers are coming fast, and from every direction.

On Wednesday, Weiner reported that Louisville has become the latest to offer Panthers DB Eric Dungy, the son of legendary NFL coach Tony Dungy. Weiner was not sure if the Cardinals would get a visit.

Dungy also has offers from schools such as Florida State, Oregon, UCF, USF and New Mexico. He will take an official visit to Oregon this weekend, and the Ducks, who won the Pac-10 in 2009, very well could be the team to beat, largely because as it stands now FSU’s offer is for a grayshirt. That means the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dungy would not enroll there until January 2011.

As Weiner noted in a text, Dungy’s recruitment is “down to the bitter end.”

To those of you who follow our blog, the Louisville offer should come as no surprise.

In December, we reported that “Louisville is another school to watch. Tony Dungy and Charlie Strong, Louisville's new coach (and the Florida Gators' former defensive coordinator), know each other well.”
