Pittsburg high school (Kansas) 2017 prospect Trevor Kent received an offer from Nebraska on Wednesday, adding to his already impressive list of suitors that includes schools such as: Michigan, Missouri, Northwestern, Penn State and others.
“I know they are a historic program and have great facilities,” said Kent. “The fan base is almost unmatched there because Nebraska doesn’t have any pro teams to support. I have some family up that way in Northern Missouri and they are all big Nebraska fans.
“I didn’t expect this many offers. I was just happy to get one offer. Even my sophomore year I thought that might be out of reach. I kept working for it, and to now have nine offers is crazy. It seems unreal and is really humbling.”
Kent says at the moment no schools are standing out. He has plans to visit Missouri later this month and Kansas next.
“I will be out of town for Nebraska’s junior day, so I won’t be able to go, but I’m going to schedule a spring practice or the spring game,” said Kent. “It’s hard without official visitors to be able to go someplace like Penn State. I’m not going to be able to go all across the country.”
Schools are stuck on where to project the Kansas product. Some like him at tight end, his current projection on Scout.com - others like him at defensive end.
“Nebraska has really said, tight end, offensive tackle, or even defensive end,” said Kent. “I talked with one of their grad assistants today and he said they were all fighting over me…It’s going to be interesting to see what happens. I’m open to all three positions. I don’t have a favorite. Whatever is going to get me on the field, I’m okay with.”
Kent describes himself as a player who goes until the whistle stops and never takes a play off. We will continue to monitor his recruitment on Big Red Report.
