Huskers still in it for David

Nebraska appears to still be looking for a player at tight end despite the commitment from Sam Cotton from Lincoln (Nebr.) Southeast. One of the prospects that Nebraska is still in touch with is Orlando David. David says that the Husker communication hasn't been very consistent recently, but he did just talk to a coach at Nebraska yesterday.

Orlando David from Hollywood (Flor.) Chaminade Madonna is enjoying a good season. The 6-foot-3 and 215-pound tight end/wide receiver says that the knee which he hurt last year is back to 100%.

"Everything is fine, everything is blessed," David said. "I am working hard and staying humble. My knee is fine. It's back to 100%."

Official visits have had to wait so far with David. He's needed to wrap up some personal things and says that he should be able to start scheduling and taking visits soon.

"I haven't set up any visits yet. I will start to take visits coming up soon. I have been trying to get around a lot of stuff personally to take the visits."

There are two schools that David says will get official visits from him. There are two others that are at the top of the list that he said he is considering for his remaining visits.

"I will be taking visits for sure to Alabama and Cincinnati. I am also looking at Louisville and Marshall is two schools that I am considering for visits."

Nebraska had been a school that was toward the top of David's list all summer however things have changed. He hadn't spoken to Nebraska in a while, but said that they called him yesterday.

"I spoke to Nebraska yesterday. It was their first time talking to me in a while. Nebraska is a school that I wouldn't consider in my top five, but I am still considering them."

The Nebraska assistant coach that called David said that the Huskers are still interested. Nebraska likes David as a tight end at the next level because he has good hands and makes plays after the catch.

"I think that it was Coach Rich Fisher. He told me that they are still interested in me as a tight end. They wanted to see about my season and said that they like my style catching the ball and making a play after the catch."
