Nebraska Prepares To Host One Massive DT

An area that appears to be fairly strong on the Nebraska defense is the big boys up front. Nebraska's defensive line has been able to put up some impressive numbers this year and hope to have the trend continue with players like Charles Deas. We were able to speak to Charles about his most recent game, his relationship with Nebraska and his perspective on when he thinks he'll be committing.

When building an offense or a defense, it's crucial to set yourself up with solid big men to move the other guy's big men around. Do this and chances are you can have a pretty decent eleven on either side of the ball. Nebraska's defensive line has had an up and down year, but has still managed to put up and impressive number of sacks, tackles and hurries. The Cornhuskers have been able to add some depth to this unit last year and are looking to do the same this year, possibly with the help of Charles Deas.

Deas, a Lauderdale Lakes, FL. resident, has received no new offers and is still sporting approximately 10 in total. His team won a 28-24 decision last week in which Deas has five tackles and two sacks. Charles comments that throughout the year, he's been able to become a more dominant athlete overall, which at 6' 4" and 326 pounds is a scary thought for offensive coordinators in his eventual conference. "I'm reading plays better and just overall becoming a better athlete," Charles said.

Charles reports that he will be on the sidelines for Nebraska's final home game against Kansas State this Saturday and has not scheduled any other official visits besides Nebraska, nor does he claim any particular leader or favored schools. He informed us that he wants to wait until Signing Day to make his commitment announcement.

Throughout the recruiting process, one thing is for sure: If you're being recruited by John Blake, Nebraska wants you and wants you badly. Such is the case for Deas who enjoys the man who would be his position coach if he chooses to be a Cornhusker. "He's joking and laughing all the time, he's just very easy to talk to," Deas reported.

We'll be catching up with Charles following his visit to Lincoln and find out what the impressive big man thought of his Big Red experience.
