Huskers extend offer to TE/OLB

The only offer that was immediately known about after the Nebraska summer camp was to Sam Cotton. Cotton, the son of a Nebraska coach and the younger brother of two current Nebraska players, committed shortly after getting that offer. Now, there is a second offer out after summer camp. This offer though, despite Nebraska being a clear favorite, may be on the table for a while though.

Keoni Bush-Loo from Honolulu (Hi.) Kamehameha has a DI offer. The standout tight end took some time over his summer to hit some camps and it's paid off for him and his family.

"I got an offer from Nebraska," Bush-Loo said. "I got it last week. It was overwhelming to get it. We had been waiting so long to get that offer and when we got it we didn't know how to feel. We are excited about it."

The offer from Nebraska is the first for Bush-Loo. He views this offer, beyond it coming from any school, as an opportunity or tool for him to get further in his life.

"We were really waiting for the first offer, but we were waiting for Nebraska to extend an offer. It's really a blessing to get the opportunity to play college football. I can use this tool to get me further in life, get a degree, get a job and start a life for myself."

Bush-Loo had been waiting for that first offer and was in pretty consistent communication with the Nebraska staff that he thought one could be coming at any point.

"The coaches at Nebraska were telling me not to worry about the offer and that it was going to come. It is a dead period so things have slowed down some, but they were able to at least meet about this and they made me the offer."

The fact that the offer was from Nebraska goes a long way with Bush-Loo. He has always had Nebraska on top and despite the offer coming from Nebraska he's going to be taking his time with his decision.

"Nebraska has always been my #1. This gives them a bigger lead. They were the first to offer me, but I am going to take this process slow. I am going to take my time, but Nebraska will be my #1."

Bush-Loo isn't certain when he would like to make a decision. He would like to take his time, but he knows that things can change on the fly and he needs to keep flexible about when to commit.

"I will probably wait until about the midway part of the season or something might happen and offers might start getting pulled. I need to just be able to weigh my options as I go."

The Nebraska staff hasn't singled it down for Bush-Loo which position they like him at the best. The Nebraska staff is going to continue to evaluate him as the season goes and they see film both on offense and defense.

"They are recruiting me as both. Nebraska wants to see my senior film as it goes because they are still evaluating where they want me to play. They are talking about offense and defense.

"On offense Nebraska is saying that they like me as a tight end. On defense they like me as an outside linebacker. That is where I played at camp and they said that they really liked me at camp. They need help there."
