Likely to get a visit

Nebraska is looking for an experienced junior college defensive tackle up front and are hoping to land Calvin Heurtelou.

The defensive tackle position at Nebraska has featured talented youngsters this season, but experience is never a bad thing. With senior Jason Ankrah leaving after this year, a junior college defensive tackle makes sense and the Huskers have found a pretty good prospect in Scottsdale (AZ) talent Calvin Heurtelou. Reeling him in is going to to be the tough part.

Heurtelou has already taken official visits to Missouri and Miami, with a scheduled visit to Tennessee in November.

"I have two more open visits to take. There is a list of schools fighting for the others and I'm just taking it slow, seeing what I have," said Heurtelou. "Nebraska is likely going to be there. I'm excited about the offer. They have a great tradition and my favorite player is from Nebraska. I try to emulate Ndamukong Suh.

"Coach Kazenski keeps telling me they are young at the position and that I could come in and make an impact, not only stopping the run, but rushing the quarterback."

With a double-digit offer list and a busy junior college schedule, Heurtelou will have to find some time over the next month and a half to focus on recruiting. The defensive tackle will be a December transfer and participate in spring football for whatever team he signs with.

"This has always been the plan to eventually play at the college level," Heurtelou told "My family is excited about how far I have come especially with receiving these offers. They are really proud, but we were confident I would get some offers."
