Could Nebraska be the next to offer?

Nebraska is taking a very limited number of offensive lineman in the 2015 recruiting class and there is already one offensive tackle in the class. Scott Frantz might be in a good spot to get an offer though as the other offensive tackle in the class.

Scott Frantz is a bit of a new name for Nebraska fans to talk about. The 6-foot-6 and 280-pound offensive tackle from Lawrence (Kans.) Free State High School is really on the rise picking up recent offers from Miami and Iowa State.

"I just got done with my second workout of the day," Frantz said. "I workout Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the school. I have a personal trainer that I works with on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. When I am not working out I am working."

Frantz has been communicating with Nebraska commitment Christian Gaylord about the 2015 class. Frantz was in Lincoln this weekend checking out what the Huskers had to offer.

"I was in Lincoln on Saturday. That was my first time visiting Lincoln. I drove by the stadium the night before and I was shocked by how big it was. It's huge.

"I really like Coach John Garrison the offensive line coach. The facilities are very nice and they have the best fans around. There was just so much that I liked about the visit. It was awesome; just a fun day."

Away from the field and the facilities there was an opportunity to meet with the Nebraska staff. There was a discussion about an offer and the numbers that will be taken along the line in the class.

"We talked about an offer and they told me that they are only taking three offensive lineman; two tackles and one guard. They have Christian Gaylord already at one of the two tackle spots.

"They told me it's a low year in terms of numbers in comparison to other years. They typically take five offensive lineman. They said if it was a normal year -- normal numbers -- that I woudl probably have an offer right now."

The Huskers are definitely interested in Frantz and will be by his high school later in the month to see him during the evaluation period. The Nebraska staff want to see him move around a little bit and work out.

"Coach Garrison told me that he really wanted to see me in person and now that he has he's impressed," Frantz said. "He said that he's coming to see me during the evaluation period and see me at one of my workouts."
