One and done for Pasteur?

The Huskers are certainly closer to wrapping up the offensive tackle need at Nebraska with the latest commit, but the Huskers could even improve at that position after this weekend. Nebraska will host one junior college transfer and one high school player, of which the junior college player might be ready to pull the trigger this weekend.

Offensive tackle was a big need for the Huskers this year and it seemed in December they might be running out of options by being eliminated by some top prep recruits and a decommit of a junior college target. In steps Brock Pasteur.

Brock has the size that you want in an offensive tackle. The 6-foot-7 frame that carries 315 pounds, runs a sub-five second 40 yard dash, bench presses over 500 pounds and still has a 26 inch vertical jump.

"I am flying out to Lincoln tomorrow and will be in around 6:00," Pasteur said. "Next weekend I am planning on going to Middle Tennessee State. Well, more than likely I will visit Middle Tennessee State and then ECU next weekend."

Pasteur is originally from Orlando, Flor. and during our first conversation seemed like getting back closer to home might be a big part of his decision. Will distance keep Nebraska from landing Pasteur?

"It matters a little bit. I do get to see my family and friends on vacation and on breaks. It really comes down to which school is the best place to help me get to the NFL."

According to his head coach, John Weisner at Mesabi Range CTC, he feels like Nebraska is a great fit for Brock who has already been to see Nebraska at their spring game last year. Will those two visits be enough to keep him from seeing another school?

"I'd have to say that it would definitely be hard for me to say that I will commit this weekend. I definitely would love to, but other people have told me to see what else is out there. But, if everything goes the way I want it to I just might."

Nebraska hosts Ben Ossai from Bakersfield, Calif. as well this weekend. With the recent addition of Jordan Picou, the Huskers have done a great job of addressing a huge need in this recruiting class.
