The college offers keep pouring in for a pair of Westmoreland County linemen who are as proficient in the classroom as they are as pass-blockers.
Air Force and Lehigh offered both this week, the latter sending coaches to visit their high schools.

Brose is up to 18 Division I offers, 10 from FBS schools, including one “Power 5,” from Vanderbilt.
The 6-foot-4, 280-pound two-way lineman also has visited Michigan State. His additional FBS offers are from Tulane, Florida International, Umass, Buffalo, Navy, Akron, Kent State and Bowling Green.
Petrof (6-2, 275), a defensive tackle and offensive guard, also is drawing attention from various D-I conferences. His FCS offers include Robert Morris, Cornell, Lafayette and Fordham, as well as others from a half-dozen Ivy League programs, including Yale, Harvard and Princeton.
Ivy League schools do not offer athletic scholarships and military academies give “appointments,” not full athletic rides.
