Skyview lineman has eye of the Huskers

Josh Tschirgi's recruitment is heating up. The 6-4, 275-pound lineman from Vancouver (Wash.) Skyview was the focus of a few schools' attention this past week and Josh updated as to who was seen at Skyview High. There was one school in particular that caught Tschirgi's attention, and they weren't from the Northwest.

"This week, Washington, Washington State, Oregon State and Nebraska have made stops at my school," Tschirgi told The Huskers are high on Josh's list right now.

Tschirgi broke down the visits. "Coach (Mike) Levenseller from Washington State stopped by and said hi," Josh said. "He had a meeting with the coaches and our coaches seemed very excited about the opportunity for me to possibly play there. Coach (Gregg) Smith from OSU stopped in and also had a meeting with our coaches. Coach (George) Darlington from Nebraska flew in here and dropped some information off about a summer camp to our coaches. Coach (Randy) Hart from Washington came in, but I did not get to speak to him personally. Due to regulations I could not sit down and meet with any of the coaches during all of the visits."

From the sounds of it, the coaches had done their homework in regards to Josh and his abilities on the football field. "All of the coaches had seen game tape and were obviously excited enough to pay me a vist at the school," he said. "Coaches from Idaho State should be by soon, and (Steve) Greatwood from Oregon is due to be coming around during May."

Tschirgi is busy playing baseball for the Storm right now, and he's pulling his weight and then some. "We won the league title in baseball (5-1) and I went deep in the championship game," Josh said. "Very sweet. We play Curtis in Regionals." Top Stories
