Solomon has four offers

Nebraska is obviously looking to upgrade at the wide receiver position. There really isn't a position when you look at their offers that have more offers extended to players than at the wide receiver position. The Huskers are one of four teams to have stepped up and offered this South Carolina player. Who are the other three and does Nebraska has a shot?

The Huskers are in pursuit of a wide receiver from South Carolina. Jabril Solomon is a 6-foot-2 and 180-pound receiver with 4.5-speed from Hemingway (S.C.).

"Things are good," Solomon said. "I have been running track. I do the 100m, 200m, 4x400m and 4x100m. My best 100m time is 10.5 and I have a best of 22.11 in the 200m."

Besides track there are other things to keep Solomon on the go. He wants to get better at staying on top of his academics as well as getting ready for his senior year on the football field.

"I have been busy studying, working out and getting ready for football since the season got over. I really wanted to improve my speed and my strength. I also wanted to improve my grades."

Solomon has made one trip and has another planned here in the next week or so. Beyond that though he doesn't have any solid plans to make any other trips.

"I went to Clemson for junior day. I am planning on going to East Carolina on April 19th. I really don't have any camp or combine plans at this moment."

There are four offers on the table for Solomon to consider right now. He is looking for academics first and a football team that has good coaches that will get the most out of him as a player.

"I have four offers. I have offers from Clemson, ECU, Nebraska and North Carolina State. I am looking for good academics, good teachers and coaches that will push me hard. I also want to find a close team that is fired up."

Solomon does play on both sides of the ball for Hemingway, but there is only one school that is really recruiting him for both sides. Most teams like Solomon's potential on offense the most.

"Clemson was talking to playing on both sides of the ball. I play free safety and receiver. I am being recruited to play wide receiver the most at the next level.

"I prefer receiver. I think that I have good aggressiveness as a receiver, I have good instincts and I have good speed to break away and make big plays."

The Nebraska offer is a fairly new one for Solomon. He said that he was supposed to hear back from the Nebraska coaches, but missed their call. He likes Nebraska and says that it's a big time offer.

"I didn't have a chance to talk to them because they were supposed to call me back. I got it a week or so ago. I can't remember the coach's name that is recruiting me.

"I think that it's a good offer. Nebraska is big time. It seems like they want to throw the ball a lot in their offense. I don't know a lot about the school though."

The Huskers are going to get a fair shake here when it comes to being considered as much as nearby schools for Solomon. Solomon says that the distance from home isn't a big thing for him to consider.

"The distance doesn't matter. I am just going to pick out the best school for me and it may be real close or far away. It doesn't matter."
