Huskers could get official visit

It's always something to say that you offered first and Nebraska can do that with standout wide receiver, Jordan Cunningham. Since Nebraska extended an offer to Cunningham he's picked up over 35 other offers to go with it.

Fort Lauderdale (Flor.) University wide receiver, Jordan Cunningham, is getting out on the road a bit. He's been to three junior days, after this weekend, and says that while he doesn't have any others set up right now he's not ruling any others out.

"I have seen Miami, South Florida and Florida State," Cunningham said. "I don't have anything else scheduled to go and do, but something might come up and I am going to try and make some more trips."

Cunningham does have some options when it comes to schools to visit. He says that he is getting close to having 40 offers and isn't close to naming a list of favorites or trimming his list anytime soon.

"I think 35 or so. I almost have 40 offers. It's very early and I have a lot of options. I am going to take my visits, check out some schools and meet some coaches. I haven't gotten a lot further than that."

Cunningham is about 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds. He says that he's a physical receiver that can go up and get the ball and take the ball away from the defender. He also says that he catches the long ball well and can mix it up underneath.

"I think that my strengths are being able to spread out the defense and the ability to catch the deep ball down the field. I can mix it up too and do some things underneath and be more of a possession guy."

Cunningham had a solid junior year hauling in 32 catches for 574 yards and eight scores. "I was all-county from the Herald and Sun-Times and I was already invited to the Underarmour All-American Game."

When Cunningham does get around to making a college decision he says that academics are the first thing that he will be looking at. After that he will look at the team when it comes to the offense and the coaches. He also says that distance won't play a big factor in his decision.

"I am definitely looking at the academics. I also want to look at the type of the offense they run and how the coaches interact with the players. Distance doesn't matter to me a lot. I just want to find the right place."

The Huskers are one of the 35+ offers for Cunningham and while he might have problems thinking of all of his offers the Nebraska offer will always stand out. The coaches from Nebraska were the first to offer Cunningham.

"Nebraska was my first offer. I picked up an offer from them before the season for sure. It might have even been in the summer. The coach that is recruiting me is Coach Rich Fisher.

"I think that they have a good program and when the time comes they will be a team that will definitely be in consideration for one of my five official visits."
