Huskers standing out to Newby

California running product Marcus Newby talks about the latest in his recruitment.

Chaminde College Prep's (CA)Terrell Newby is one of the top ranked running backs in the country. Coming off a dominating junior season, Newby is looking get even better during his senior season, which could see tough with the offer list that he already has.

"I have offers from 12 schools (Cal, Nebraska, Oregon, Washington, Arizona State, Colorado, Minnesota, Boston College, Oregon State, Utah, Washington, Washington State)," said the soon to be senior.

Newby doesn't have a top school or list, but four teams seem to stick out, with one sticking out more than the other three, or so it seems.

"I've visited Nebraska, UCLA, CAL and USC, I don't not have any more visits planned as of now, but I'm itching to get out to Oregon," said Newby.

As it seems with a lot of recruits, Newby is seeing a large push from Nebraska, who will lose their senior running back next season.

?"I'd have to say Nebraska is recruiting me the hardest they have really stressed how much they need me more than a want," said the California product.

"I feel like I can be used in many ways like Rex (Burkhead) is used now and try to incorporate my speed anyway. I can use that in either catching or carrying. And coach Beck and I went over all the ways I would be used going over for about an hour and thirty minutes of film when I was over there."

Newby doesn't have an exact date for when he would like to make his final decision. But he will for sure do his homework before committing to any school.

"I'm not sure when I want to commit, but I'm leaning towards going on all of my official visits first," said Newby.

Newby is currently ranked the No. 39 running back in the nation according to
