UPDATE 8:45 a.m: Scout.com has learned DiCaprio Bootle has earned an offer from Nebraska, after camping well yesterday.
"I thank God for presenting this opportunity upon me," said Bootle in a message to Scout. "I'm blessed."
Miami Southridge high school (FL) cornerback DiCaprio Bootle says he grew up watching Nebraska on television. Players such as Ndamukong Suh and Prince Amukamara were standouts. So when the soon to be senior found out the Huskers would be in Miami for a satellite camp, he knew he had to go.
“I felt that I performed well at the camp. I had a chance to showcase my speed, my ability to get in and out of breaks, my ability to attack the ball,” said Bootle. “Hopefully only good can from it. They said they would be in contact with me in the near future. We will definitely be in touch.”
“I ran a 4.34,” said Bootle. “I have bee hitting 4.4 consistently. The last five camps I have been around 4.4. I don’t know what it was. I guess it was because Nebraska was there.”
At 5-foot-11, 175-pounds, Bootle is still searching for his first power-five conference offer. While the offer would be evaluated just like every other school, it would be a game-changer in his recruitment.
“That would be big for me though. It would be huge to get that offer,” said Bootle. “Especially if it’s Nebraska.”
