Sellers trying to turn heads in Lincoln

Luke Sellers is camping at Nebraska, trying to prove he's got what it takes to be a D-1 football player.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Papillion La-Vista high school (NE) 2015 prospect Luke Sellers is in Lincoln for Nebraska's three-day high school camp and the soon to be senior is turning heads.

"So far I have done the Iowa and Tulsa camp and I think today was by far my best camp performance," said the fullback/linebacker prospect. "I was really confident from the start… The linebacker's coach (Ross Els) and I talked for a little while and he told me to make sure to call him. That was good. We will see where that leads I guess."

Sellers currently sits at 6-foot-1, 235-pounds and has run a reported 4.6 to 4.7 forty at various combines and camps according to people close to his recruitment.

At this point, Sellers is being recruited by Wyoming, Iowa, Kansas State, Tulsa, North Dakota State, and South Dakota State.

So what about Nebraska?

"Honestly I haven't been hearing from them a lot," said Sellers, who recorded over +110 tackles in 2013. "I'm just doing what I can and showing what I got. They don't offer a bunch of in-state guys so I was just trying to standout. There are also smaller schools out there and if Nebraska is talking about me, that's only going to help my recruitment."

Sellers started his sophomore season as a fullback, but didn't start playing both ways until his junior year.

"I had a breakout year," said Sellers. "I'm just really confident. Before my junior year started, I wasn't talking to any schools. My play made that happen."
