Huskers throw down offer

Nebraska could be looking for as many as two quarterbacks in the 2013 class and their latest offer went out just a couple of weeks ago. Bo Pelini said how important it was to recruit a radius of Lincoln and that means getting into that Big Ten footprint. The latest offer to a quarterback by Nebraska is right in the middle of the Big Ten footprint.

There just aren't a lot of offers out there by Nebraska to quarterbacks for 2013. Nebraska has been selective and calculated when it comes to extending offers at the quarterback position since offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Tim Beck took over a couple of years ago.

The handful of offers that Nebraska did have out to quarterback recruits grew by one recently. The Huskers extended an offer to Park Ridge (Ill.) Maine South signal-caller, Matthew Alviti, recently. But, not as recently as some might think.

"Yes, Nebraska offered me," Alviti said. "I actually got the offer from Nebraska a couple of weeks ago."

Alviti said that it wasn't a good time to catch up right then and said a longer interview would be possible later in the week. Alviti was recently given the #11 quarterback rating by and is currently rated a four-star prospect.

Nebraska joins a long list of offers for Alviti. That list includes Notre Dame, Northwestern, Purdue, Michigan State, Boston College, Indiana, Illinois and others. Alviti finished the 2011 year with 2,210 yards passing with 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
