"I know that he has been in touch with the Nebraska staff after the offer," Mr. Iese said. "Nate has been talking with Coach John Garrison about getting up there to Nebraska for a visit. He's really, really excited about that."
Mr. Iese believed that Nebraska liked his son more on defense, but he knows that the tight end position coach has been the point of contact with Nebraska. Iese is being recruited to play multiple positions by various schools.
"I think that they are recruiting him as a defensive end first. I know that Coach Garrison is debating with the defensive ends coach about position. He's being recruited as both by various schools.
"Oregon State likes him as a tight end. UCLA offered him as an athlete. Nebraska I think that it's same as UCLA. Coach Garrison was watching film and liked him and the defensive line coach came in and they liked him too. They are debating."
Iese literally outgrew the wide receiver position, which he started out playing, and has since moved to tight end and defensive end. He has taken a liking to defense though and now favors playing on the defensive side of the ball.
"Nate used to love the wide receiver position, but he outgrew it. His favorite position is now defensive end, but it's nice to have the option to play a couple of positions in college."
The Nebraska offer makes a dozen for Iese. "Nate is holding 12 offers I believe. It's Oregon State, Washington State, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, San Jose State, Nevada, Nebraska, Idaho and there are a couple of others that are slipping my mind."
