Huskers offer Hendrix

The evaluation period is always a great opportunity that allows teams to come in and see you in person. Some times it leads to offers like it did for Payton Hendrix today after Nebraska stopped by Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne earlier this week.

Nebraska has been all over North Texas this week and extended a new offer to this safety from Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne. Payton Hendrix, a 6-foot-2 and 190-pound safety, says that the Nebraska offensive coordinator was at his school earlier this week.

"I got an offer from Nebraska today," Hendrix said. "They were here to see me and Jovan Pruitt earlier this week. I think that they were here Tuesday. It was the offensive coordinator, Coach Tim Beck."

The Nebraska offer was big for Hendrix. Hendrix says that he's caught Nebraska on television the past couple of years and noticed the high powered offense. He says that he will need to focus more on what their defense does in future games.

"I was real excited to pick up that offer from Nebraska. Nebraska is a big-time program. I catch them from time to time on television. I know that they have a really good offense, but I need to pay more attention to their defense now."

Hendrix is inching his way closer to a double-digit offer total after the offer from the Huskers. "The Nebraska offer makes number six for me. I also have offers from Colorado, New Mexico, Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech and Stanford."

Hendrix has seen a couple of schools this spring, including one to a school who has offered, and will take another visit this weekend. Hendrix says that he would like to make some more trips this summer to some schools that are further away.

"I have been to see Louisiana Tech so far out of the schools that have offered me. I went to the spring game at Baylor and I go up to Oklahoma State this weekend. I am going to try to get out and travel this summer to see schools like Stanford and Nebraska."
