Chris Scott still taking official to Nebraska?

There is one glaring need for this recruiting class past the big three of the quarterback, wide receiver and running back. The offensive tackle position is in desperate need of help to come in and provide quality depth to a position that saw the only returning starter move to center for Nebraska.

Chris Scott could be that guy for Nebraska. At 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, Scott has quickness that the normal big man doesn't. He boasts a 5.3/40 which is key for a tackle to be able to stay up with ends coming off of the edge.

Rumor had it that Scott would be in attendance for the Western Illinois game at Nebraska. Have those plans changed? "No sir, I was. Are you talking about for the game? My official to Nebraska is the second weekend in December."

There were plans for the season opener in Lincoln to have Scott take an unofficial. However, those plans haven't been finalized and it could still happen, but things have still changed to what looked to be a good weekend for Scott to take an unofficial to Nebraska.

Although Nebraska won't get to have Scott in the stadium next weekend they have to be pleased with Scott's top five announcement. "I think that I have my top five: Nebraska, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi State and LSU in no particular order."

Coach John Blake has been hard on the recruiting trail for Scott who is currently rated four stars and the nation's No. 10 offensive lineman in the country by The Insiders. It just so happens that Coach Blake is one of the biggest reasons he thinks so highly of Nebraska.

"I like the tradition at Nebraska. They have been winning national championships since forever. They've been around for a while. I like the new coaching staff; Coach Callahan, Coach Jordan and Coach Blake. Blake is actually the one recruiting me. I've got to know him a little bit. I've got to talk to Coach Callahan and Coach Jordan. I've been talking to Coach Wagner as well. I've go to learn about the whole coaching staff in general."

Chris is planning on taking all five officials before making a decision about where to attend college. Additionally, all of his visits will follow the football season. You could expect a decision from Scott shortly after the fifth visit or not until signing day.

The season has already started for Lovejoy and unfortunately for them not in a positive way. "We played Thursday. Well, we lost. We lost 20-15. It was really against a good team. It came down to the fourth quarter and they just wanted it more. Personally, I didn't do my best. Whole bunch of mistakes on my part and on the team's part. I didn't do what I wanted to do or what I am capable of doing."

Scott will be ready for the next game though. Don't expect too many down games from Scott this season who is definitely one of the best tackles in the nation.
