Offensive lineman Luke Pinkelman, from Cozad, (Neb.), is one of the strongest players in the Midwest region. The 6-foot-2, 275-pounder reports a max bench press of 415 pounds and a squat of 535. The in-state Huskers have a tradition of producing powerful blockers, but who is recruiting him the hardest?

Last year Nebraska offered four in-state players and accepted commitments from all of them. There were about 10 high school players that accepted scholarships to play division one football, another handful that will be on their way to play division two ball and another handful that will be walking on at Nebraska or at other schools. There was a knock against "top" talent in-state last year, but there was a lot. This year there seems to be more top-talent as well as a lot.

The in-state talent for 2007 for the state of Nebraska could be very good next year and led by a "strong as an ox" of a lineman from Cozad (Nebr.). There is rich tradition from Cozad and Husker football. Brendan Holbein and Chris Dishman both came from Cozad and were important parts of Nebraska's success in the mid-90's.
