Nebraska Jumps Into Pac 12 Area Recruit Ryan Nelson's Recruitment

Nebraska seems to be putting extra attention on the offensive tackle position in recruiting and one Cali prospect reported an offer last week.

After landing five offers from Pac 12 area schools throughout the recruiting process, 2017 Buena Park high school (Cali.) offensive tackle Ryan Nelson has become a national recruit. Nelson received an offer from Nebraska last week.

“It was a good offer. I wanted to have opportunities to be recruited nationally, not just the Pac 12,” said Nelson. “I know a little bit about Nebraska.

“They intrigue me. What I found out was that Nebraska has the most academic All-Americans. They are leading by about 40 some I believe. Academically I want to be a history teacher, so the fact that it’s a smart school and not just a football school is definitely great.”

Nelson’s current offer list consists of schools such as: Cal, Utah, Arizona and Arizona State.

“I control my body well and know how to move as an offensive lineman. I really do a good job of keeping in front of offensive lineman,” said Nelson. “I called Coach Cav when he offered me. Coach said he saw a lot in me and that I fit their offense well. That is the reason he offered.”

Nelson says visiting Nebraska would be a “cool trip,” and while nothing is set up at the moment, it’s a place he would like to visit.

Buena Park has multiple Nebraska prospects/offerees on their 2016 roster. The Huskers have also offered tight end-wide receiver Taariq Johnson and wide receiver Jeremiah Hawkins.
