Huskers close to offering?

There is probably another spot for a DT in the 2011 class and there is a player that has expressed interest for a while now in Nebraska. After attending the Nebraska spring game he was told that an offer could come after some evaluation. With a couple of games down, and having some big games, is he any closer to having that offer from the Cornhuskers?

Chicago (Ill.) Urban Prep Charter Academy defensive tackle, Mason Fuller, says that the weeks start out with a bang. To kind of get things moving again, he and his team practices before school on Mondays.

"We practice in the mornings on Monday," Fuller said. "It's a way for us to get back into the week and get things going right away."

Urban Prep Charter Academy is doing well and so is Fuller. He has had some solid games already this year with a quarter's statistics looking better than most people's game statistics.

"Our season is going well. In the first game, they were ranked 18th in the state, I had one sack and four tackles. In the second game I had four sacks and eight tackles. That was just about the first quarter."

There are two offers on the table for Fuller already and more could be on the way. There is a rumor that he has a third, a team is saying that one could be coming and he's getting new interest from a Big 12 team.

"I have offers from Illinois, Kansas and there's rumor around that I have an offer from Arizona. I am waiting on an offer from Nebraska. Their coach said I should be getting one. Oklahoma is also talking to me."

Fuller is a 6-foot-3 and 280-pound defensive tackle and he says that the communication between him and Nebraska is very regular. He knows that Nebraska calls him whenever they can.

"Whenever I do talk to Nebraska, and they call me whenever they can, I get a call from Coach Marvin Sanders. He says that he's very interested and that Nebraska is interested.

"He's told me that what he's seen of me that I am a great player and that an offer should be coming in very soon. It would mean a lot to get an offer from Nebraska."

That offer would mean a lot from Nebraska because Fuller's favorite player of all time came from Nebraska. He also loves the Blackshirt defense.

"Ndamukong Suh is one of my favorite players, no; he's my favorite all-time player. I could follow in his footsteps at Nebraska and that would mean a lot to me. I also love the Big Red "N" and their Blackshirt defense."
