Huskers in the hunt for top RB

The season is going strong for Kalen Ballage and Falcon (Colo.). The standout running back is having a tremendous senior season and he says that he will wait to take official visits until after the season. Where will he visit?

Falcon (Colo.) had some coaching changes in the off season and they are putting together a solid season. They are 6-1 overall while going 3-1 in district play.

One of the main reasons for Falcon's success is because of Kalen Ballage. Ballage, a three-star running back recruit, is one of the top athletes in the nation and could play on either side of the football at the next level.

Ballage is 6-foot-2 and 215-pounds through seven games has 126 rushing attempts for 1288 yards rushing. That's good enough for a 10.22 yards per attempt average and he's averaging 184 yards per game and has scored 14 touchdowns this season.

It's no wonder why Nebraska had identified and offered Ballage very early in the process. The good news for the Huskers is that they are still very much in the hunt for his services and he will officially visit Lincoln.

"Yes, I am still considering Nebraska," Ballage said. "I am planning on taking an official visit to Nebraska, but I don't have any visits set up yet."

The official visits won't start for the No. 32 running back in the nation until after the end of the season. Ballage says that there are three schools right now that he is pretty sure that he will be visiting.

"I won't take any official visits to any schools until after my season. Besides Nebraska I will also take official visits to Michigan State and Boise State for right now."

If there is a team that could get one of those final two official visits it may be one of teh schools that just offered. "Notre Dame offered me earlier this month."
