More Cali offers

Big Red Report has learned of three new California offers, with one player reporting he will be in Lincoln for "Big Red Weekend."

With what seems to be an increased look at California in the 2013 recruiting class, Big Red Report has learned of three more offers to prospects in The Golden State.

Harlow says the plan is to be in Lincoln on June 16th
It started with three-star offensive lineman (No. 21 guard in the country) Sean Harlow. The San Clemente high school product played alongside 5-star offensive tackle Kyle Murphy last year. After playing right tackle last year, the soon to be senior will move to left to fill the void left by Murphy.

"It was great watching him and it was fun playing with Kyle," said Harlow to Fox Sports yesterday. "We are really good friends. He had to work hard for what he got, and I have to do the same thing. I took a lot away from him and was conscious of how he did things."

Harlow plans to be in Nebraska on June 16th for "Big Red Weekend." He currently has a double digit offer list. BRR will check in with the three-star prospect on Monday after he recovers from prom weekend.

Looking for a back

With the departure of Aaron Green, the running back position has become a greater need for Nebraska in the 2013 class and on Friday the Huskers offered four-star talent Craig Lee from Redlands high school. The soon to be senior is currently the nation's No. 24 running back.

"Lee is a complete back who does everything well. He has good size, and very good speed. His balance is exceptional and he has that rare ability to be both a home run threat and an every down back as well," said the Fox Sports West Coast recruiting team. "He won't shy away from contact and can get downhill as soon as the hole opens up. Lee also catches the ball well out of the backfield and will make you miss in the open field."

After posting over 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2011, Lee has offers from schools all along the west coast including UCLA, Washington, and Oregon.

"I want to go to a school with a great business school, so that's first and foremost," Lee told in late February. "I also want a school with a good pharmacy school and I may decide to do both so that I could open my own place eventually.

Last but certainly not least

After Fox Sports National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins broke the news about Lee, he reported again on Saturday about a new Nebraska offer. This time to Buhach Colony offensive lineman Aaron Cochran.

A three-star prospect (No. 64 offensive tackle), Cochran has offers from schools like Cal, Oklahoma, and Purdue. He is the brother of Matt Cochran who signed with Cal in 2011.

"Schools that are showing interest in me, I want to respond my showing interest in them and getting a good look at them," said Cochran in April. "I want a place where I can feel comfortable."

It's unknown at this time if the soon to be senior has plans to visit Lincoln anytime soon. He already made one Midwest tour earlier in the year.
