Favoring three

Nebraska just received their first offensive commitment of the 2012-13 class yesterday and now people are wondering who the next might be. Some could be thinking Jerel Morrow from Topeka (Kans.) Emporia High School. Morrow has a double-digit offer total, but has just narrowed his list. Is Nebraska still on it?

Jerel Morrow says that the evaluation period has been keeping him busy. He sees all of the schools that have been stopping by to see him at Topeka (Kans.) Emporia High School.

"It's been going pretty good," Morrow said. "Oklahoma State was here recently. Kansas State, Nebraska and a couple of weeks ago Missouri was here to see me."

Morrow has a double-digit offer total and is holding some very nice offers. "I have 11 offers right now. I have offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Army, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio and one more."

While it's still early in the process Morrow says that he has narrowed his list. It was just something that he said that he decided to do a few days ago.

"I have things down to three schools. It's down to Kansas State, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. I just decided a couple of days ago."

There were some things that Morrow said went into narrowing his list from 11 to three. Morrow said that after visiting these schools that there were some keys that set them apart from the others.

"I am looking at distance to home and to my mom. I want to look at how established the program is and the academic support was big and I felt that these three offered the most support for their student athletes."

Morrow was unable to make it up for the weekend that Nebraska was supposed to have their spring game, but he's planning on getting up to Lincoln again soon. He doesn't know if he will be part of the Big Red Weekend on June 16th though.

"Yeah, I am planning on making it up there in June with my mom. I don't know if I will be up there for the 16th, but it will be close to that date.

"I was up there for their first spring practice and with my mom there this time it's going to be important to look at academics. I want her to approve of what they have to offer."

The Huskers have told Morrow that they like him as a wide receiver. That's fine to Morrow despite a possible personal preference to play defense. He says that he will play wherever he's asked to play.

"Nebraska still likes me as a wide receiver. I like playing defensive back, but I will play anything. Anywhere they find a place for me I would play."
