Chitty has Nebraska offer

It's pretty much a standard to grab one quarterback every year. Nebraska has thrown a wide net out there this year from California, to Iowa, down to Texas and out to Alabama. Alabama isn't typically a hotbed for Nebraska recruiting, but two years ago the Huskers pulled two out of the state of Alabama and wouldn't mind getting this athletic quarterback to come north too.

At 6-foot-2 and 185-pounds, B.J. Chitty has good size for a quarterback. You add legit 4.6/40 speed that helped him average over seven yards per carry and that is a weapon on the football field.

"I am lifting weights and running right now," Chitty said. "I don't play any sports in the winter. I used to run track, but I am not running this year. I am just getting ready for football."

The Dothan (Ala.) Northview standout is looking at an upcoming tournament in the coming months, but no recruiting trips are set up as of yet.

"There is the national seven on seven Florida coming up. I think that it's in Tampa. I haven't taken any recruiting trips, but those won't start until this summer."

When Chitty does get out to see some schools this summer it will be mostly schools in the area. Only one of the schools on the visit list has offered so far.

"I would like to go and see Florida, Alabama, Auburn and probably Florida State. I have offers from Nebraska, Duke and Auburn."

Chitty had a solid junior year, but wasn't able to remember all of his stats. He said that all of the honors typically go out to seniors as well.

"I think that I have a good arm. I can put it where you want it to be put. I have very good accuracy. I would consider myself a dual-threat guy as well."

Nebraska was an offer that really opened Chitty's eyes a little bit. The Huskers offered Chitty some time ago and have been steadily pursuing the dual-threat quarterback.

"I don't know very much about them, but it's a good offer. It's good to know someone is out there looking at me. I have been hearing quite a bit from them. When they talk to my coach they ask him to tell me to call them when I have a chance."
