Nebraska offers one of best in Central Texas

There are things in life you can say you never have enough of. You can never have enough time, enough money or this or that. As a football coach though, you can never have enough 6-foot-4, 200 pound receivers that run a 4.4/40. That is why the Huskers stepped up with an offer today.

It was only a matter of time. Even in Texas you can't hide size at the wide receiver position that can run like a gazzelle. Terrell Reese is destined to become a very popular person very quickly.

The Cornhuskers were in to evaluate Reese this past week and today he received a special letter from Nebraska. "I got a letter today from Nebraska with their offer," Reese said.

"It's been a busy day actually. Arizona called me earlier. They say that they are sending me an offer soon. Someone from Nebraska is still calling me tonight."

What a day it was. In the package from Nebraska was a written offer for Reese and a handwritten letter from none other Bill Callahan the head coach at Nebraska.

While Nebraska and Arizona seem to be leading the charge on the offers for Reese from Pflugerville (Texas) Henrickson it seems many others are about to follow suit and offer as well.

"Missouri said that they'd be offering me pretty soon. I'd also say that Purdue and UTEP are close. That is all I can really think of right now that are close."

People see potential when they look at Reese. They see a 6-foot-4 and 200 pound receiver flying down the field at 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, but it's only a vision. He only played in two and a half games last year before injury and mostly as a quarterback.

"I am not sure what my stats are actually from last year. I didn't play alot because I got hurt. I played as a quarterback and ran a lot out of hte shotgun."

Reese can see himself getting more opportunites this year to play quarterback again, but he is planning on leaving his mark that will be remembered on the year as a receiver.

"I am really working on catching the ball better right now. I catch it well right now, but you just can't be too good at catching passes."

Reese ran track this spring and did all of the relays as well as the high jump. "I ran second leg in the 4x100m, anchor in the 4x200 and second leg in the 4x400m. I did 6-foot-4 in the high jump."

If Reese had to name names when it came to talking about his favorites, his offer in hand and offer on the way are at the top. "Now? I'd say Arizona, Nebraska is always a favorite, Purdue, Wisconsin and Texas. Texas was writing me a lot before, but I don't get a lot of things from them now."

Scout.com subscribers will get a better idea about Reese following the U.S. Army All-American combine in Waco, Texas on May 22.
