Ben Stille picking up steam

Nebraska has already offered two in-state players in the class of 2016. One of them has signed up to be a future Husker, but a third is trying to get the eye of the Nebraska staff and already has a couple DI offers to his credit.

Ashland (Nebr.) Ashland-Greenwood DE/TE Ben Stille is a name that Nebraska fans are getting to know. The 6-foot-5 and 225-pound recruit is working hard this off-season trying get ready for his senior year and generate more college interest.

"I go into Millard and work out," Stille said. "I am doing mostly speed training and some vertical work. I am also doing a lot of explosive lifts."

Stille has already taken a couple of trips. One of them paid off with an offer just a few weeks ago. The other was to the in-state school which was the following week.

"I visited Wyoming two to three weeks ago and they offered me. I went two weeks ago to Nebraska. That's about it right now."

The Huskers hosted Still for their junior day. Stille said that the visit went well. He took a tour and saw everything that Nebraska had to offer.

"The visit to Nebraska was for their junior day. It went pretty good. I saw most of the football facilities, talked to the coaches, saw practice, saw the academic facilities and the life skills offices."

While Stille made it to Lincoln for their junior day there are still some questions about which coach is recruiting him. He said that still might be getting sorted out as bit as the coaches are moving to the state.

"I'm not exactly sure which coach is really recruiting me from Nebraska. I exchanged numbers with the position coach. They are all still settling in. I couldn't tell you who I speak with the most."

The defensive coordinator at Nebraska came up to Stille at practice while on the junior day visit. Stille said that there really wasn't anything too specific discussed, but he says that he would like to get back to Nebraska a couple of times this fall.

"Coach Mark Banker came up and talked to us at practice that weekend," Stille said. "It wasn't anything too personal. Just some time. I don't have any plans to get back to Lincoln yet. I would probably see a couple of games this fall."

Stille says that getting back to Lincoln this summer for camp could help him and his effort to get a Nebraska offer. He says that his performance in one-on-one drills could help land in landing that offer from the Huskers.

"A summer camp at Nebraska couldn't hurt," Stille said. "Getting in front of the coaches in live situations would help. I do plan on going to Nebraska for camp this summer."
