One of the best in Nebraska

The search was on last year for Nebraska to bring in some offensive tackles. They were able to find one, in-state, in D.J. Jones from Omaha (Nebr.) Central. This year, Nebraska has another good one that has grown up outside the metro areas, but could be every bit as good.

Sometimes the players outside of Omaha and Lincoln get over-looked. It would be impossible to over-look Aaron Schulte simply from a size perspective. The 6-foot-6 and 304 pound tackle/defensive end from Norfolk (Nebr.) Catholic has helped lead his team to back to back state titles.

"We did pretty good, we won state again," Schulte said. "We went 13-0. I would have to talk to my coach about my individual stats. I am just not sure about that."

Schulte is a physical specimen that is for sure. While he comes in at 6-foot-6 and over 300 pounds he still has a 5.2/40. His athleticism at the tackle position helped earn him some nice honors. "I was all-state this year as well as all-district."

Last summer Schulte took in one camp. This summer he isn't really sure yet where he might go to camp, but he is considering Nebraska.

"I went to the Kansas State camp last year. I am planning on probably going to a couple of camps this year. I am thinking about the Nebraska camp and then I just don't know."

The recruiting attention is just starting for Schulte. He did take in a game in Lincoln this fall as an unofficial visit and he was invited to others.

"I have got letters from Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas State. I went to the Iowa State game at Nebraska as an unofficial. I was invited to two others, but I couldn't go because I had games."

Growing up in Nebraska, the Cornhuskers are hard to ignore. Schulte shared his thoughts about Nebraska. "I think that they did really good this year considering that they are re-building that program and everything. I was impressed by them. I am really considering them."

If you ask Schulte to break down his ability on offense and defense it isn't a comfortable thing to do. He is very humble about his abilities, but did pass along what his coaches have told make him so successful on the football field.

"I played right tackle and defensive end last year. At tackle, I am fairly quick I guess. The coaches say that I have good feet. I really don't know. On defense, I have been told that I am quick and I can get my hands up when I rush the passer. It really doesn't matter where I play. I haven't been told by anyone about what they are recruiting me as."
