LeMay talks Nebraska offer

Nebraska nabbed a nice combination at quarterback and wide receiver last year with Tommy Armstrong and Jordan Westerkamp. This year Nebraska seems to be going the direction of "bigger is better" at one of the projected two wide receiver spots in the 2012-2013 class. Uriah Lemay says that's what he heard from Nebraska too. Where is Nebraska at with LeMay?

Uriah LeMay has been getting ready to run track recently. The 6-foot-2 and 188-pound wide receiver from Matthews (N.C.) David W. Butler High School says that he will be running four events this spring in outdoor track.

"I am running track," LeMay said. "I didn't run indoor, but I have been training while indoor has been wrapping up. I will run the 100m, 200m, 4x100m and 4x200m. My personal best 100m is 10.9, I think."

The interesting part about track season is that it's also time for football workouts for LeMay. He says that he goes in after school for football and when he's done with his workout there goes back outside to finish up his track practice.

"We don't really have spring practices for football, but we do have spring workouts. We just come in after school to lift and do some weird, crazy workouts that the coach comes up with. I typically do the football workout then head down to finish up track practice."

On paper you can see one of LeMay's strengths immediately. He's a big target, but he also has the attitude that it takes to make you a great big receiving target. He says that beating the defender each play increases your chances to be successful on the football field.

"I am a big target. I can see myself, from what people are telling me, playing more of that X. I like to go out there and be physical. Really beat the man across the line from me. When you do that you will likely have the best outcomes."

It's been a busy spring for LeMay who says that he's been to four schools already and has a fifth visit set up. He also has plans for a couple of combines in the coming months and would like to get out to still see some more schools this spring and summer.

"I have been to see Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia Tech. I will be heading to South Carolina in the spring. I am going to the Nike Camp on March 10th and the UnderArmour combine as well, but I don't know that date."

And there's a reason why LeMay has been looking at all of these schools and wants to see more; he has a lot of options. In fact, he has 26 of them currently and because he hasn't seen a lot of schools he says that he's not comfortable trimming his list or naming favorites yet.

"I am up to 26 offers. I am still in the evaluation process because I haven't been able to take visits to some of the schools that I want to see. Once I get through some more visits and probably mid-way through the season I will be able to start narrowing things down."

One of the 26 offers that LeMay has is from Nebraska. The Husker staff actually reached out to LeMay over Facebook and asked LeMay to call them. Nebraska told LeMay about the quarterback they nabbed last year and that this was a big year for them to get some quality receiving targets.

"Nebraska offered me on a Tuesday on my way to church. I got a message over Facebook from Coach Rich Fisher from Nebraska to call him so I called him on my way there. It was actually about three or four weeks ago.

"Nebraska sees me as being a big receiver target like most of the college coaches are telling me. They said that this is a big year for them to get a couple of wide receivers in their class. He said that they got a good quarterback last year from Texas and he told me that he liked my film and said that I could make an impact in Lincoln."
