A position that is somewhat thin on the depth chart, Nebraska needs to land a tight end this year, after failing to do snag an offensive threat last season.
A player who has already been featured on BigRedReport.com before is Christo Kourtzidis. The California 4-star product is currently ranked the No. 7 tight end in the country and admits Nebraska is recruiting him as hard as anybody.
"You know how it is; they are somewhat limited on their interaction with me. They can call once during the non-dead periods and stuff like that, but they are sending me a lot of stuff and every time I call the coaching staff they have good things to say. I guess those would be the biggest differences or things that stick out," said the 2012 prospect, when asked out Huskers along with Florida State recruiting him the hardest at this time. "It's definitely liked when a schools telling you the things you want to hear and looking at you pretty hard. There is definitely a better feel about it.
"I usually talk with Coach Garrison. He's a high-energy guy and seems like he's somewhat a younger coach. On a preliminary basis, we have never met in person, he's seems like a really cool guy."
Fresh off a visit to the Sunshine State, Kourtzidis only has one more visit planned at this point, but will be talking with his parents in the coming weeks about his summer plans.
"I'm going to be heading to Alabama on June 12th for a day, but really that is all that is set in stone right now," said the junior. "I'm definitely visiting Nebraska at some point, but I just really haven't sat down and hashed out the schedule. I want to visit."
A California high school product, trips to Florida, does the idea of playing in the Midwest bother Kourtzidis?
"No, not at all. We definitely have our share of the elements out here, obviously not as much as Nebraska, but game day is game day. You can't really avoid it. If anything, it gets you ready for the next level, where stuff like that is pretty unavoidable."
