David will visit Nebraska

Nebraska is looking for a top high school tight end this year. It helps having an offense that you will be featured in and some enthusiasm on the recruiting trail. Orlando David has seen the Nebraska interest and says that the Husker staff like him as either a tight end or a wide receiver. He also says that the Huskers can count on an official visit from him this fall.

Orlando David and Hollywood (Flor.) Chaminade Madonna are still out on the practice field for the rest of the month. He says that there is basically a turn-style on the door at Chaminade for all of the colleges to visit.

"We still have spring practices," David said. "We go to the end of May I think. Then we will be done. We have seen a lot of different coaches at our school so far.

"We see at least three or four schools a day. Today we had Michigan State, Virginia, Connecticut, FIU, Columbia, Minnesota, Alabama, Florida State and West Virginia."

The Nebraska staff has taken a very serious approach with David and he's seen it too. He also likes the fact that Nebraska when he's talked to the coaches isn't all just about football.

"I would say that Nebraska has been very serious about recruiting me and that's good; that's good. They have good coaches and they are not just about football, but they are about the spiritual side.

"Coach Fisher has been recruiting me. Coach Ron Brown came by the school here too. I could just tell by the way he carried himself what kind of man he is."

The Nebraska staff should expect a visit from David. He doesn't think that it will be over the summer so he's planning on making it one of his five official visits.

"I probably won't be able to get up there this summer, but I will visit there this fall on an official visit. I want to take an official visit to Nebraska."

The Nebraska staff is leaving the door wide open to figure out where David could play now and fit in the best. They see him doing multiple things as a tight end possibly and maybe also as a receiver.

"They see me as a flexed out tight end and also about a guy that could line up next to the tackle. They are also talking about me playing some big receiver.

"I can see myself doing all three, but I really feel that at the next level that I am a receiver. I have the abilities of a receiver as far as hands, route running and catching the ball.

"I am not saying that I have the speed as a receiver, but I am not slow. I catch the ball, make a move or two and do what I have to do to make a play."
