Can Nebraska pull another out of Texas?

The stars at night are big and bright; deep in the heart of Aldine, Texas. The Huskers are the latest to offer a stand-out defensive lineman from Texas. He is claiming a solid leader too!

Jay Norvell was in town to see what has brought so many schools to Aldine, Texas. The spectacle was Paul Freeney. Paul is a 6-foot-3 and 225 pound sack machine of a defensive end who runs a 4.6 second 40-yard dash.

Like the coaches before him, Jay Norvell and his team, ended up offering Freeney. Paul is carrying five offers total with another on the way possibly.

"I just got off the phone with the Kansas State coaches," Freeney said. "They were here and watched me and some film. They are taking some film back and he was talking about offering. I think that they will."

"I'm up to five total offers so far. I have offers from Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Utah."

What they see in Freeney is a kid that in the largest class in Texas (5A) is totally dominant. Freeney also has the build to put on more weight and has a blazing fast 40.

"I'd say that I'm really quick off of the ball. I've got good strength. I can bull-rush and I can also get up-field and make the play."

His bench press, to him, is 'pretty good'. He benches 315, but he says that his real strength is just natural. He give his natural strength the credit on the 15 sacks he had last year.

Last year those 15 sacks earned first team All-District honors as well as an underclassman all-star honor.

Freeney claims that five or six schools have called him personally. Most of which were the schools that offered. He also said that Co-Nation Champions, LSU, were in town to see them too.

Despite LSU coming to see him Freeney said that his biggest thrill so far was an offer that he received.

"It kind of shocked me to get that offer from Texas A&M."

Freeney has previously stated that The Aggies were the team that he wanted to play for all long. Could the latest Nebraska offer sway him?

"I have to do some more looking into and checking out Nebraska. I need to learn some more about them."

Although Freeney claims that distance is not an issue it doesn't hurt to be an hour or two from College Station. Freeney claims that A&M is a solid leader followed by Oklahoma, Kansas and Florida State.

Freeney is planning on camping at A&M this summer and may end up taking another camp in or two. There aren't any plans set up for any unofficials this summer at this moment.
