Is Texas LB still considering Nebraska?

Anthony Lewis is one of the most sought after linebackers in the state of Texas and the nation. The linebacker has already hit 30 offers, but he hasn't started to really narrow things down in terms of his leaders or where he will be spending his official visits. Nebraska is one of the 30+ teams having offered, are they still in the picture?

Life should be laid back for a player with 30+ offers, but it isn't for Anthony Lewis from Haltom City (Texas). Lewis is trying to improve himself and the team through their conditioning workouts that are being held by the other members of the team.

"Yeah, we have been working out," Lewis said. "We have been meeting as a team all summer. We are back into a conditioning program. It's led by the players, not by the coaches."

"I want to work on my quickness. I'm not slow, but I want to improve my 4.6 40 time. Schools are looking at me as an inside or an outside linebacker."

This summer has been busy and Lewis wasn't able to get to any camps or combines. However he did get a chance to take a couple of unofficial visits this summer and check out a couple of campuses.

"I didn't get a chance to do any camps or any combines. I went down to see Texas A&M for their one day camp. I had been there a couple of times before. I went to see Florida as well. It was hot there."

Not getting to camps hasn't hurt Lewis. The 6-foot-2.5 and 225 pound linebacker had his play last season to stand behind. Lewis had 110 tackles, 5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 2 INTs his junior season. "I am up to around 30 offers. I have thought about my official visits, but I haven't set any up."

Distance appears to be an issue for Lewis, but the issue is easily soothed over considering the ease of travel for him and his family. "Distance is a big thing for me. Florida isn't too far away for me though. My parents both work for airlines so it's easy for them to get there to see me play."

One of the 30+ offers is from Nebraska. Although Nebraska targeted Lewis early on in the process, it wasn't the school, the distance or other offers to accelerate other offers from other schools past Nebraska.

"I do have an offer from Nebraska. I like Nebraska. They really haven't been that open to me. Since getting their offer I haven't got a lot of information on them. I was interested in them when I got their offer, but I just never really got a lot of information on them."
