Huskers joining the hunt

There is always a premium on the taller defensive tackles and there is a pretty good one in Michigan for 2012. Already holding onto some offers, the new attention from a school has definitely caught his attention. When he thinks about defensive tackle at this school he thinks about current Detroit Lion and former Husker Ndamukong Suh. What does he think about the new interest?

Detroit Catholic Central (MI) defensive tackle Matt Godin already has a handful of offers, but the 2012 three-star prospect should continue to see more stagger in.

With schools like Buffalo, Cincinnati, Duke, Michigan State, and Syracuse already coming to the table with a scholarship, the junior has a list of double digit schools he is also hearing from, including Nebraska.

"Out of all the schools that haven't offered, they are up there. They are recruiting me pretty hard. I would say out of the schools that haven't offered, they are one of the ones on the top," said Godin. "I'm really interested in the program. They have won I believe five national championships. That speaks volumes for their program."

In 2010, Godin racked up 66 tackles (28 for loss) and two sacks. In the process he earned All-Catholic league honors at the defensive tackle position.

"Coach Pelini does a great job and they are just a powerhouse. I have always loved the Nebraska program," said 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect. "I'm definitely interested in their program more because of the defensive lineman they turn out.

"When I think of Nebraska, I immediately think of guys like Ndamukong Suh. I would love to go there and follow guys like that."

Godin is also hearing from Michigan, Wisconsin, Penn State, among others.
