Huskers offer four-star WR

After landing a four-star wide receiver out of Big Ten country in the 2012 class, the Huskers are trying to do it again in 2014.

Nebraska's motto when it comes to committed players is this – if a guy is visiting elsewhere, he's not committed. There is no such thing as a soft verbal.

It's the stance they will take Grand Rapids Christian high school 2014 wide receiver Drake Harris, who received an offer from the Huskers today. Harris is currently a Michigan State commitment, but is planning on visiting schools this spring.

Harris is currently the No. 6 wide receiver in the country in the FOX Sports NEXT early 2014 rankings and could be the best player in the Midwest, according to national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu.

"I believe the strengths of my game are to go vertical and just have the quarterback throw it up to me because I am a bigger wide receiver and I can jump and have speed," Harris told FOX Sports NEXT on Wednesday. "Also catching the ball underneath and making people miss is a big part of my game. I also have really good hands. Then probably my weakness right now is probably just my strength. I need to get stronger in the weight room but that will all come in time. Right now I am 6-foot-4 and 180-pounds, with a 4.39 and 39 inch vertical."

Harris' offer list in the double-digits, with schools like Michigan, Florida, Alabama, and Ohio State all putting scholarships on the table.
