Carnes touches base with Frazier

The news of Brion Carnes' decommitment from South Florida has been greatly exaggerated, it would seem. But we know that the Bradenton (Manatee), Florida standout is keeping his options open. When it comes to Nebraska, are they in it? Carnes did say that he actually did talk recently to his well-known cousin, former Husker Tommie Frazier.

Recruiting is crazy

Just as Brion Carnes, a dual-threat quarterback who has been committed to South Florida since February. But one recent report on him had him as a DE-commit from the Bulls. Carnes has since said that the report wasn't true. It was one visit which was obviously interpreted wrong. "I just went to camp at UGA (Georgia) and that was it. I didn't change my mind," he said.

But Carnes admits that he is keeping his options open. He has for some time, actually, but always maintaining that he's a commit to USF.

In addition to heading to Georgia for a camp, Carnes has been thinking about where he might take some of his official visits. Clemson seems to be high on the list as does West Virginia. And it seems Nebraska has come up as a possibility, too.

With the commitment of Tyler Gabbert, a Missouri prep QB, Nebraska is likely full at the position, though, they still have a shot at Detchauz Wray, a dual-threat type, like Carnes, who is being recruited as more of an athlete by the Huskers than a pure QB.

As of right now Carnes said that Nebraska hasn't offered, but he's been talking to one of the legendary former Huskers and his cousin, Tommie Frazier. "We talked a bit about Nebraska, and I talked to him about potentially taking an official visit up there. But I don't know about that yet," he said.

Carnes said that at the last point of his conversations with the Husker coaches, they were recruiting him as a QB. But again, no offer has been extended as of yet.
