Summer camp visitors

The Nebraska staff will be back out on the field for a little more work in June followed by some time off in July. The Husker coaches will be starting up again this Sunday with the kid camp followed by two high school sessions, a quarterback camp and a kicking camp. Here is a list of campers that Big Red Report knows about.

The Nebraska staff has a little more work to do before some deserved time off.  The summer camp schedule starts up this Sunday and will end June 14th after quarterback camp.  Here are the dates:

Youth Camp: June 5th – June 7th

High School Session I: June 7th – June 9th

High School Session II: June 9th – June 11th

Elite Quarterback Camp: June 12th – June 14th

Kicking Academy: June 12th – June 13th

The visitor list is always very fluid, however Big Red Report has been compiling a list of confirmed and supposed visitors for the last few weeks.  Here are a breakdown of the campers, the date(s) that they will be in Lincoln and other camp plans.

Confirmed Campers:

Kenny Lawler, WR, 6-foot-3/175-pounds, Upland (Calif.) *OFFERED*

Nebraska: June 12th – June 14th Other: None known

Nebraska seems to be in a very good position with Lawler.  Kenny will be in Lincoln for three days with his father who has filled his son in on the dominance of college football by Nebraska in the 1990s.

Jaleel Johnson, DT, 6-foot-3/290-pounds, Montini Cathloic

Nebraska: unknown
Other camps: unknown

A teammates of Husker commitment Jordan Westerkamp, the 3-star DT is still being evaluated by Nebraska. But, it appears he is hoping for an offer, saying the Huskers will be near his top if he gets one.

Mike Shoff, OL/DT, 6-foot-6/280-pounds, Cambridge

Nebraska: June 7th – June 9th (three days)
Other camps: Kansas State and Iowa

"I will be at the first session, June 7th through the 9th. I will be there for all three days. I really just want to perform. I am going there to become a better football player. I am listening to Coach Barney Cotton and I agree with what he said about ignoring all the other stuff beyond just coming to Lincoln and working out. Everything else will work itself out."

Jake Schany, LB, 6-foot-2, 210-pounds, Blair

Nebraska: June 14th (one day)
Other camps: Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Colorado and Stanford

"We'll see how all that goes. Hopefully get some offers at the camps.  I think that I have six offers right now. Tulane, South Dakota State, Colorado, Ohio, North Dakota and I think that there is one more. There has been a lot going on."

Sam Cotton, TE/DE, 6-foot-4/230, Lincoln Southeast

Nebraska: June 7th – June 11th (both sessions, one as a tight end and one as a defensive end)
Other camps: None set

"I got offers from Ohio and Tulsa.  It feels great to just get an offer, but then you have to consider that Tulsa and Ohio are pretty good schools.  I am going to both of the first sessions at Nebraska. I am going to do one as a tight end and the other as a defensive end."    

Garret Johns, OL, 6-foot-1/275-pounds, Aurora

Nebraska: June 7th – June 8th
Other camps: Iowa, Kansas State, and South Dakota State

"I think if I go out there and perform well at camp, I have a pretty good shot at getting an offer. My dad has been talking to them quite a bit, including Coach Pelini," said Johns. "They haven't really talked to me about my senior year, so I think the camp is important."  

Kai Wolfe, OL/DT, 6-foot-4/310-pounds, Alma HS

Nebraska: June 8th (one day)
Other camps:  Football University (Denver) – June 10th-12th, North Dakota State – June 25th, Kansas State – July 30th
Possible camps – South Dakota (Vermillion) – July 17th, Kansas

"I haven't heard a lot from Kansas since Junior Day, so I that camp is borderline.  When I go to Nebraska I will be working out as an offensive lineman.  I am pretty sure that is where they want me."

"During the evaluation process North Dakota State, Kansas State and Fort Hays State came by the school.  I think that there could be an offer for me at North Dakota State depending how I do at camp."

?Dylan Utter, DT, 6-foot-3/300-pounds, Papillion-LaVista

Nebraska: June 8th (one day)
Other camps: Kansas – June 4th, Iowa State – June 17th.

Jasnowksi hails from one of the Nebraska in-state programs that is known for turning out top talent.  Jasnowski has good size and speed coming off of the edge.  He isn't holding any offers yet, but a strong showing at the various summer camps that he is attending could help him get that first offer.

Terry Grigsby, WR, 6-foot-2/185-pounds, Omaha North

Nebraska camp: First session (either all three days or just one day)
Other camps: Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas and possibly North Dakota and South Dakota (all one day)

"I went to the spring game at Kansas State.  I spoke to Coach Cotton and I am still not sure if I will be doing three days or one day in Lincoln.  I got invited to some other camps that I might go to too."

Drew Farlee, K, 6-foot-0/175-pounds, Norfolk Catholic

Nebraska: June 12-13
Other camps: Iowa – June 18th (one day)

Matt Miller, TE/DE, 6-foot-5/230-pounds, Omaha Skutt Catholic

Nebraska: June 10th
Other camps: Iowa State – June 5th, Missouri – June 7th and Kansas – June 11th

"I will go one-half as a tight end and the other half as a defensive end.  Coach Barney Cotton has been my recruiting coach.  Nebraska likes my film on offense and defense.  I like both positions the same."

Drew Ott, DE, 6-foot-4/235-pounds, Giltner
