Nebraska extends offer to Miclisse

The Nebraska staff isn't catching their breath too long following national letter of intent signing day for the 2013 season. On Thursday night, they offered a Florida linebacker.

Greg Miclisse from Palm Bay (Flor.) Bayside starts spring ball with his team mates on May 1, but he's already sitting on a double-digit offer total. The 6-foot-1 and 235-pound linebacker picked up his latest offer today from a Big Ten program.

"Nebraska offered me today," Miclisse said. "They offered me tonight around 7:00. That makes 11 offers I think. I have other offers from South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Louisiana, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Nebraska and a few others."

Miclisse does play some offense, but he's being looked at by all of the schools he's spoken with to play defense. Miclisse is a linebacker that is really a physical presence on the field and he has tremendous athleticism. College coaches see him at all three of the linebacker spots potentially.

"I do play tight end, but linebacker is my main position. The college coaches like me at all three of the linebacker spots, but I like middle the best. I like to read the guards and the tackles and plug the holes."

There are a lot of trips that Miclisse is planning on taking starting next weekend. He has plans all the way out through the end of next month as well.

"I will be in LSU next weekend as well as Louisiana on Friday. After that I am planning on visiting Cincinnati, Tennessee, Louisville and at the end of March I want to go and look at Ohio State. I will be visiting Georgia Tech for their junior day in early March."

There are going to be a lot of opportunities for Miclisse throughout the process. He says that he has told all of the coaches that he's spoken with already what is most important to him and that distance or staying close to home will not matter to him in his decision.

"It's academics first for me. I tell all of the college coaches that I talk to that. Looking at football I am really looking at playing time. I want to go somewhere that I can make a name for myself, a place where i trust the coaches and be successful."
