Arthur McGinnis (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) received an offer from the Huskers. Nebraska joins a long list of suitors for his services after a great Nike SPARQ combine in early March.
"I know Nebraska has a great defensive system there, but I don't know much about them right now," said McGinnis. "I'm in the process of finding out about them. I'm actually doing research about them right now.
"I hear about them a lot. I'm friends with the Karr guys, so I definitely know about Nebraska and what they are doing in New Orleans."
McGinnis plans to major in business management, which will be a requirement of any school he picks. He's also looking for early playing time if possible.
"I'm open to going anywhere in the country. I just want the best opportunity for me," said McGinnis. "Arkansas offered today as well. I don't know much about them either, but I'm trying to find out about them also."
In a recent article by Scout.com's Mike Coppage, McGinnis talked about his NIKE SPARQ scores.
"I'm feeling real good about it. I had the 96th percentile with a 4.69 40; 94th percentile with 4.31 shuttle; and 90th percentile with powerball (39.5)," said McGinnis.
