Huskers extend offer

When a college football team has a way of dipping into a particular school for recruits it's a huge advantage. It doesn't hurt when that particular school has DI athletes year after year. Fort Scott (Kans.) Community College finished runner up in the National Championship game last year and had some outstanding talent. This year seems to be more of the same.

Over the past two years the Nebraska Cornhuskers have gone to Fort Scott (Kans.) Community College to get Brandon Kinnie, Jermarcus Hardrick and LaVonte David. A little earlier today the Nebraska staff extended an offer to Stanley Jean-Baptiste.

"I got a Nebraska offer today," Jean-Baptiste said. "I got it earlier this afternoon. That makes a couple offers for me now. I have offers from Memphis, Northern Illinois and Middle Tennessee."

The offer was a big one for Jean-Baptiste. One of the reasons it was a big one was because he knows some of the players up at Nebraska right now.

"Oh man, it feels good. It's exciting. I already know people there at Nebraska. I was talking to Brandon Kinnie a few minutes ago."

Jean-Baptiste's eligibility could be interesting. First off, he can graduate in December and go three for three. However, according to Jean-Baptiste, there is a chance he could leave Fort Scott early.

"After I graduate this December I will be a three for three. If I can leave early, that is if I can get all of my academic work done this summer, I could be a four for four.

"I redshirted last year at Fort Scott. I failed to qualify out of high school and I went to prep school in North Carolina. I didn't get through clearinghouse in time and had to enroll at Fort Scott instead of Colorado."

If Jean-Baptiste pulls the trigger blind on a Nebraska commitment don't be surprised. Beyond the people there, and going there, he's already visited Lincoln before.

"I have been up to Nebraska already before. I went up to their spring game with Lavonte David. I was up there with some of my coaches too."

The list of players from Fort Scott that Nebraska is interested in doesn't seem to end there either. The Nebraska staff seems to have interest in the other receiver at Fort Scott as well.

"Nebraska is also interested in Malcolm Moulton who is from Georgia originally (Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett)."
