Gifted 2018 WR Kamryn Babb has first offer from Nebraska

St. Louis (Mo.) CBC wide receiver Kamryn Babb is only a sophomore, but recently picked up a Big Ten offer and has the talent to draw many more.

Kamryn Babb enjoyed a breakout season as a sophomore catching 39 passes for 832 yards and ten touchdowns while grabbing five interceptions while showing the talent and athleticism to be a major prospect in his first extended action with the varsity.

"I played a little varsity [as a freshman] but it was mostly JV," he said. "At the beginning, I think the seniors helped a lot. We had a great group of seniors and the coaching staff helped me a lot. As the season went on, I think I got stronger, worked on my craft throughout the season and got better as a player and a person as well."

Nebraska, who has already secured a commitment from senior teammate Tre Bryant, extended the first scholarship offer to Babb, an experience he won't soon forget.

"It was unreal, the first big offer coming in. It was exciting, but it shows me that I have to work harder and harder each day because the offer came in," Babb said. "I'm going to visit soon, probably with Tre, go up there with him and see the campus and get to know the school more."

The Huskers offered as a wide receiver, although cornerback was discussed as well.

Missouri, Illinois and Purdue have also shown interest and there is little doubt that more will join in, especially once he continues making the improvements he plans on making this offseason.

"I'm training. I stopped basketball this season to focus more on football but I'm going to be joining a 7-on-7 team probably and then I train with my coach, Coach Pitts, so I'm going to be working out with him and then working on my routes and getting better."
