E.J. Falkner, a 6-foot, 175-pound, wide receiver from Omaha (NE) Central has been hearing from several schools the past couple of months.
Central Head Coach Joe McMenamin says it's a matter of time before someone offers a scholarship.
"E.J. was a Nebraska camp standout last year," McMenamin said. "He broke Mark LeFlore's performance index record at their (Nebraska) camp by 20 points.
"The problem with E.J. is that he hurt his wrist last year and only played three games for us. He's a terrific athlete that's going to be a good wide receiver at the next level. E.J. has 4.4 speed and he's got excellent hands and leaping ability."
Falkner doesn't have an offer yet but look for Iowa may be the first to pull the trigger and they might be doing that very soon.
"My favorites are Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Oklahoma and Oregon." Falkner said. "I'll probably camp at Nebraska this summer."
I mentioned to E.J. Falkner that I'd be in town for Central's game with Creigton Prep on September 6th. In true wide receiver fashion he said, "Great. I can't wait to put on a show for you."
One more before you go
One of the top sophomore prospects in the state is also at Omaha (Central). Courtney Grixby is a 5-foot-10, 170-pound, dual-threat quarterback with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash.
"Nebraska, Colorado and Iowa have already offered Courtney (Grixby) a scholarship," said Central head coach Joe McMenamin.
"Courtney is the younger brother of (Nebraska I-Back) DeAntae Grixby. I think Nebraska sees Courtney as a quarterback and Colorado and Iowa are looking at him as an athlete.
