With the graduation of three scholarship tight ends, the plan was for Nebraska to take at least two, possibly three in the 2017 class. After the news on Sunday night, it will be a position of major need for the Huskers in January.
Jenks (Oklahoma) product Reese Leitao, who committed to Nebraska in the summer months, opened up his recruitment over the weekend. The three-star prospect recently picked up an offer from Texas (he officially visited) and in-state Oklahoma.
We will take a wait and see approach on who Nebraska targets during the last month of the recruiting cycle. With Aurora (Nebraska) high school tight end Austin Allen committed, the only other tight end the Huskers aggressively targeted during the last few months has been Inderkum high school nationally ranked prospect Josh Falo.
With offers from nearly everyone in the country, Falo seems like a long shot at best, but the four-star has indicated before he would like to visit Nebraska. Currently he’s taken two official visits, including to perceived leader Colorado. The Pac-12 rising program is a solid offensive fit for Falo and he has family ties to the program.
Here are a few other tight end offers Nebraska extended this recruiting cycle.
