Plant City junior Jordan Prestwood received his fifth scholarship offer Tuesday -- the most recent coming from Purdue -- Raiders coach Jason Strunk said.

Prestwood already owns written offers from FIU, USF and South Carolina, and he's received a verbal offer from UCF, which the Knights promise will be a written offer after their bowl game this weekend.

"He is getting some big-time exposure now," Strunk said Tuesday via text message.

Prestwood first came onto the scene over the summer, where he impressed at camps at Notre Dame, South Carolina and Auburn.

Purdue is recruiting Prestwood to play offensive tackles, as are most schools, Strunk said. This past season, the 6-foot-6, 250-pound junior made 26 catches for 311 yards and 3 touchdowns, averaging nearly 12 yards per reception.
