Nebraska goes in-home with OL, Scott Krehbiel

In-home visits are in full force and coaches around the country are counting them down, trying to keep themselves in the minds of players or trying to keep some players still in the fold. One of Nebraska's latest stops was Kansas as tight end's coach Scott Downing visited Scott Krehbiel, one of the top offensive linemen in the Midwest.

As the weeks have progressed from the end of the high school football season to now, Pratt, Kansas offensive lineman Scott Krehbiel has become increasingly popular. Instead of taking advantage of what offers he had a few months ago, now he's got the ability to choose amongst the offers he has.

Scott had narrowed that list to a degree, Colorado State, Tennessee, Kansas, Kansas State and Arkansas making up his fluctuating final five. For Husker fans, the question is obvious: What happened to Nebraska?

Krehbiel has been looking at the Huskers, but it seems with time that NU has fallen down the list. That happens and the in-home visits allowed during this time of year are a way of coaches to try and keep themselves in the minds of players or in this case, try and get back.

Tight end's coach Scott Downing visited Krehbiel at school this last week, just to do that. So, did it work?

"I'd say Nebraska is where they were before the visit," Scott said. "I am kind of looking at those main five, Colorado State and Tennessee with probably just a little edge on the rest.

It's no offense to the Huskers as Scott said that he likes Nebraska, but between the recruiting from those schools and the relationships he's developed, he just sees elsewhere some potentially better fits. "There are a lot of schools that I like, but I only get to visit five and these are the five I have right now."

Krehbiel said that he'll visit Tennessee on the 14th of January and he's scheduled to visit Arkansas on the 22nd and 23rd of this month. Kansas State was a visit he was supposed to take this weekend, but they hadn't officially named their coach, so that visit will get pushed to another day.
