After Big Red Report broke the news of a new offer going out to a Louisiana secondary player yesterday, we talked with Ruston corner Kentrell Brice about what it means for his recruitment.

"It was very a grateful moment for them to offer me. They had come to the school early and we talked on the phone. I didn't expect it to be honest," said Brice. "I thought they wanted me to call them so they could tell me to come to a camp."

The Huskers join Indiana, Memphis, Missouri, and Tulane to extend an offer, while teams like Arkansas, Mississippi, and Mississippi State still evaluate.

"I definitely have enough interest down the road to visit Nebraska," said the humble Brice. "They are one of my biggest options right now. When the end of the summer comes, I want to narrow my choices down to five, if I have five, and take my official visits."

At 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, Brice has been described as a cornerback with the speed to stay outside and the frame to move to safety.

"I'm not very cocky, down to earth, and play extremely hard. Even when I do my best at times, I feel like I can do better," said the soon to be senior. "My coverage skills are pretty good, but there's always room for improvement."

So what is he looking for in a school?

"It's basically just the right environment and where I feel comfortable that will decide things," said Brice. "It doesn't even matter how far away it is, it's more about whether I feel comfortable in that environment."

The 2012 prospect has a self reported 4.5 forty and has a 38' vertical. He is also an accomplished track star (6-foot-6 high jump, 43' triple jump) and plays basketball.
