Getting serious for Decker and Nebraska?

The only in-state offer by Nebraska is still to offensive lineman Michael Decker. Decker has been to Nebraska a number of times this spring and possibly has at least one more trip coming up for the spring game.

Michael Decker visited Nebraska for their junior day in early February. The 6-foot-4 and 280-pound offensive tackle from Omaha (Nebr.) North was in Lincoln again recently for one of the first spring scrimmages for the Huskers.

"I was in Lincoln for one of their first scrimmages of the spring," Decker said. "It was fantastic and exciting to think about football again. It was a great chance to hang out with the staff and some of the players too."

Decker didn't go around the Huskers introducing himself. It was the other way around in fact. "The players came up to me. I remember Jake Long and Alex Lewis coming up to me to talk to me. They were great guys; big guys."

While Decker is excited to get this dose of football he is actually in season again for North High School. He throws shot and says that he already has a meet under his belt and is trying to get better and beat his personal best.

"My track season started about a week ago and we have already had our first meet. We went to Lincoln for an indoor meet. My goals for track are to make it to state and keep improving. My personal best is 50'4" for the shot-put and I would like to improve on that."

The Huskers are trying to get Decker back to Lincoln in just a couple of weeks for the spring game. There are a couple of other schools that Decker might consider visiting, but nothing is set up yet. Getting the time to make the trips could be a problem.

"Nebraska is talking to me about visiting for the spring game and I am interested in getting there for the game," Decker said. "Other than that it's the same as last time and as of right now I don't have any other trips set up.

"My parents have had to work and travel last week so we haven't had a chance to talk about it. I guess that I would visit South Dakota State and Wyoming and they are schools I would visit if I had time."
