Kincade thinking about the Huskers

The search for a quarterback in the 2013 class for Nebraska continues and it now zeroes in on one from Dallas. Devante Kincade from Dallas (Texas) Skyline wasn't anticipating a Nebraska offer based on the words of his recruiting coach from Nebraska, but when he did get that offer it was a big deal.

Devante Kincade is a name that a lot of Nebraska fans talk about now when it comes to the quarterback spot in the 2013 class. Kincade is a four-star signal caller and is the No. 25 quarterback in the nation according to, says that the evaluation period couldn't have gone a lot better for him.

"It went great for me," Kincade said. "Every team came through to see me. I guess that they liked what they saw. When I knew that a team was there to see me I just tried to give them a show.

"At times it's been crazy. I have just been trying to take it all in slow. I am not trying to rush anything when it comes to this process."

As a player Kincade says that he just makes plays. He's versatile as well. He's not one of those quarterbacks that only works out of the shotgun and doesn't have great footwork. He can do it all. He's a throw first and run second quarterback.

"I think that my best ability is to make plays on the field. I can go under center, I can get into shotgun, I can do read-option, and I can make the throws and put it in a tight hole. I am a pass first guy and when that's not there I can take off running."

Kincade is holding a double-digit offer total and says that one of the biggest days for him was the day he reeled in three offers. Nebraska just happened to be one of those three schools to extend an offer that day.

"I am around 12 offers now. I picked up three in one day with Utah State, Nebraska and Michigan State. That was a great day. I am going to try and make the best out of this wherever I go. Where I go I am going to try and take over. That's just my mindset."

Kincade says that education is the biggest piece about his college decision and whether or not a school has a good sports medicine program. After that he will turn his focus on the field and look at a lot of different areas of the football team and program.

"First it comes down to education and my major. After that it comes to football like the offense, the depth chart, the style of offense, the graduation percentage of the offense and the coaching staff."

There were some doubts, at least by Kincade, about getting the Nebraska offer. He was sold on the idea by Nebraska that they weren't just offering anyone and that getting an offer meant that you were pretty special.

"It was a big deal to get that offer. The first time I spoke to Coach Tim Beck he said that they are going to take their time with offering quarterbacks. He said that they want to be careful.

"When they offered I was just shocked. Coach Beck said that he liked everything about me. He said that I had it like my swagger on the field and how I carried myself."

The summer is here, but Kincade says that there aren't a lot of things that he has planned in terms of trips and visits. Nebraska is a school that will likely have to wait to host him until the fall anyway on an official visit.

"I am not for sure on any summer plans. Nebraska would be a school that I would have to most likely wait to see on an official visit. They would definitely be a school that I would be interested in taking an official visit to see."
