Nebraska latest to offer Khalil Tate

Nebraska just offered one of the top athletes in the nation. The Huskers see this high school starting quarterback playing wide receiver at the next level.

Khalil Tate from Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra is the starting quarterback, but the special athlete is being looked at to play at other positions in college. Nebraska is one of the latest offers for Tate.

"Nebraska likes me as a wide receiver," Tate said. "I have good size, body control and strength in my hands when it comes to playing the receiver position."

Coach Keith Williams is recruiting the 6-foot-1 and 195-pound Tate. Tate has spoken with Coach Williams about the offer from the Huskers and what he likes about Tate.

"Coach Williams says that he really likes my potential. He also likes my hands and says that I am a good fit for the offense at Nebraska."

The Nebraska offer makes it a baker's dozen for Tate. There are some schools that stand out to Tate as of right now. "I would say USC, UCLA, Nebraska, Florida State, Arizona and I have been hearing a lot from Boise State."

Tate says he is looking for a family environment in a school as well as the offense. He is also trying to remove football from the equation to see if he would just like to be a student and not a student-athlete.

"I've been to the USC junior day," Tate said. "This upcoming week I am going to Texas Tech, Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas A&M. I am planning on going to Arizona on March 14th after I take the SAT."
