Huskers enter the picture for JUCO DT

The defensive performance by Nebraska, particularly the active defensive line play, impressed Terrell Clinkscales this weekend after picking up a Nebraska offer on Thursday. What are his thoughts on the Huskers?

Terrell Clinkscales is already sitting on a pile of offers. The 6-foot-4 and 315-pound Clinkscales got an offer that he was excited about though late last week. He says that he was waiting on Nebraska to extend an offer.

"I have to admit that I was excited about it," the four-star junior college defensive tackle said. "It was an offer that I actually was waiting on, but I was excited when it got here."

Following the offer the Huskers were on national television this weekend and ended the second longest home winning streak in the nation when they defeated Michigan. The talented defensive tackle came away impressed by the Nebraska defense.

"It was great to see them on T.V. this weekend. I thought that their defense played good. I liked the pressure that they were getting out of their ends.

"I did notice that their defensive tackles had some trouble separating once the offensive lineman got their hands on them. They have a young group of players though on defense."

The Dodge City (Kans.) C.C. product says that he can see himself in the Nebraska system potentially. He saw a lot of young players and says that he can come in and make the group stronger.

"I can see myself in their defense. I know that they have good players, but I can come in and work hard and make the group more solid."

Nebraska is now working trying to get an official visit set up with Clinkscales. He is taking one this weekend, took one last month as well and has another one set up in January already.

"I got a message today from the Nebraska coaches saying that they need to get me to Lincoln for a game. I have been on one trip already to Iowa State, I go to Kansas State this weekend and I visit Texas Tech in January."

Clinkscales will not be able to enroll until the summer session. He has two years to play two.
