Huskers step up with offer

With offers from the likes of USC, LSU, Oklahoma and Florida; it might be tough for other schools to standout if they haven't already offered. Tom Wort is already holding offers from those four schools and just picked up his most recent offer today. Before the offer, a phone call was made by the position coach to his school and the two had a chance to speak before the offer.

Tom Wort got word from his head coach that a coach from a school wanted him to call. Once Wort got a chance to call, he was talking to the new position coach in Lincoln.

"I spoke to a coach from Nebraska," Wort said. "Coach Mike Ekeler called the school and gave the coach his number so I could call him.

"We just talked about how much he liked my tape, how much he liked me as a player. He told me that he would be down in the spring.

"He was telling me about Nebraska a little bit. He told me how much they would like me to go up there and play for them."

The conversation discussed why Nebraska liked Wort so much, but did they like him enough to offer?

"Coach Ekeler told me that they offered. I should actually get it today, but I haven't checked the mail yet. He said that they offered me and that it was on its way."

It's a little too early to tell what the offer from Nebraska could potentially mean. Wort hasn't had a chance to to do any research on the school or the team yet.

"I am not totally sure since it's so new. I haven't done a lot of research on the school and I haven't had a chance to look into it.

"They are definitely a great school, they have great tradition, and they would definitely be a school that I would be honored to play for."

One of the teams that Wort has had a chance to research, and now visit, is Texas A&M. Wort was in Bryan/College Station this past weekend.

"I went to Texas A&M this weekend. It was alright. It's a good place. It's about a two and a half hour drive from New Braunfels.

"I liked the coaches, the facilities and the fact that it's so close to the town. It was a nice place."
