Nebraska came up short last year out of three offers to Upland (Calif.) players, but that isn't stopping the Husker staff from ponying up again. Upland has one of the top defensive ends in the state of California and the country and the Huskers are one of the latest teams to offer.
Nebraska extended offers to three Upland (Calif.) players last year with Colin Powell, Marques Mosley and Kenny Lawler. The Huskers came up short on all three, but they are re-engaging the high school again in pursuit of 2013 defensive end, Joe Mathis.
"Nebraska offered Joe Mathis today," Coach Mike Esquival from Upland High School reported to Big Red Report last night.
Mathis was a huge part of Upland's success last year on defense. Mathis finished his junior year with 80 tackles, eight sacks and forced two fumbles.
Mathis claims a bench press of 405-pounds, a squat of 585-pounds, power clean of 300-pounds and can snatch 225-pounds.
