With one tight end in the class, Nebraska is open to another in 2016 and Lansing Catholic Central (MI) ATH Tony Poljan might fit the need.
The Gatorade Player of the Year in Michigan, Poljan was a high school quarterback, but is open to playing another position at the next level.
Previously committed to Minnesota as a quarterback, Poljan opened up his recruitment after head coach Jerry Kill decided to retire. Nebraska quickly jumped in the mix with an offer and Poljan took an official visit to Nebraska over the weekend.
“I definitely enjoyed seeing Nebraska and what it was all about,” said Poljan. “I think I underestimated how big everything is at Nebraska and how much support the fan base really gives the football program.
“They said they really use the tight end a lot and it’s a main part of the program. They thought I could really be effective in their offensive scheme.”
Poljan says he will likely visit Central Michigan on January 15 and could possibly visit Iowa State down the road.
“Nebraska didn’t really have a timetable for me need to commit,” said Poljan. “I will definitely remember the coaching at Nebraska when thinking about my official. I’m looking for a place who has really good coaches, because they are going to recruit high character guys. That is the team I want to be part of.
“I would say the visit was a nine. I don’t know what could have made it a ten.”
