Stoltenberg returns to Lincoln

Mick Stoltenberg is one of three, in-state commitments for Nebraska. All of the in-state recruits were in Lincoln yesterday and you can expect that they will for every home game this season.

Mick Stoltenberg from Gretna (Nebr.) was in Lincoln last night as the Huskers opened up their 2014 season under the lights against Wyoming. This was the first time Stoltenberg was in Lincoln since June.

"It was my first time back at Nebraska since Big Red Weekend in June," Stoltenberg said. "It was a really cool experience. The east stadium was incredible."

Stoltenberg came away impressed with some things on the field last night despite the close score. He believes that there is definitely work to do and that the staff will help help them improve.

"I thought that the offense looked good. Imani Cross and all of the other running backs all looked very good. The defense looked OK, but they are going to need to improve and the coaches will help them fix it."

There is a reason Stoltenberg was looking at both sides of the ball. The Nebraska staff is open to the 6-foot-5 and 260-pound recruit playing multiple positions on offense possibly and that he could still play defense.

"I have been told that I will play possibly tight end or offensive tackle. I have also been told that I could play defense too. It's still open to Nebraska where I fit.

I am most comfortable on defense probably. I don't mind playing offense if they need me to. I was going to play tackle this year on offense, but was moved to tight end before the start of the season. I think that tackle would be a big learning curve."

Stoltenberg believes that he will be in attendance for every home game this fall, along with some of the other commits, and that will help the class overall. Stoltenberg sees them already behaving like a team when it comes to recruiting.

"As a class all of the home games will help us get closer. All of us are talking to the other recruits that are in Lincoln for their visit. It's a strength in numbers thing with all of us talking to the recruits."
