Nebraska makes final three for 4-star OL Chuck Filiaga

Nebraska has made the final three for offensive lineman Chuck Filiaga - a four-star prospect in Texas.

Fresh off a state championship over the weekend, Aledo (Texas) offensive tackle Chuck Filiaga released his final three on Thursday.

Nebraska, Michigan and Oklahoma are the schools Filiaga will choose from at the Army All-American game on January 7. 

Filiaga has visited all three schools, with his trip to Lincoln being the most recent. 

The All-Midlands player is friends with graduating Nebraska senior offensive lineman Corey Whitaker, who played at Murrieta (California) Vista high school. Filiaga used to play for the Broncos before moving to the Lonestar state.

“I like the Nebraska coaching staff a lot,” said Filiaga before his trip to Lincoln. "Tavita Thompson is Polynesian. He's easier to bond with. We know each other although we don't know each other."  

Could Filiaga see himself in the Big Ten?

“I don’t know. Honestly it’s not about the conference. It’s about where I can grow up as a man,” said the four-star prospect. “I’m definitely looking at depth charts. Nebraska has definitely said I could be an early impact guy for them.”
