New name starting to emerge at DE

Nebraska is looking for a few defensive lineman and checked in on a possible future offer on Tuesday.

As Nebraska tries to fill out their class, the defensive line is a major need. The Huskers could likely take two more prospects between defensive tackle and end.

On Tuesday night, Big Red Report learned of a new name starting to emerge. Dekaney high school (TX) Isadore Outing, a three-star defensive end prospected, hosted a Nebraska coach at his school on Tuesday. A former Cal commit, Outing is looking for a place to call home.

"If they offer, he'll commit on the spot," said Dekaney assistant coach William Blaylock. "Nebraska could be a major life changing offer if it happens.

"They told him that they have two defensive line spots and are looking at six kids. He's one of the six."

Outing is currently rated the No. 102 DE in the country according to He still holds offers from Cal, Colorado, Iowa State, and North Texas.

"They are supposed to contact him this week unless they decide on other guys," said Blaylock. "He's a legit defensive end and a high character kid."

According to Ahmard Vital, Nebraska watched Outing earlier in the season when the network was present.

Outing helped lead his defense to a 5A Texas State Championship in 2011, racking up 33 tackles, three sacks and four forced fumbles and earned 13-5A Honorable Mention honors as a junior in 2012. In 2013, he was named a 13-5A first-team district player.
