The Huskers today picked up the commitment of tight end Reese Leitao. He hails from Tulsa (Oklahoma) Jenks High School.
Leitao, who is 6’4 and a listed 235 pounds, is the 35th best tight end in the 2017 recruiting cycle and the 11th best player in the state of Oklahoma.
Besides Nebraska, Leitao held offers from Maryland, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Minnesota and Houston.
(normally I have the Hudl for the prospect, but Leitao’s page is private. If/when I get a public tape, you’ll get it)
The Huskers offered Leitao back on April 11th, and visited for Friday Night Lights in June. After his visit, he put the Huskers in his Final 4 earlier this month.
Leitao will join Austin Allen as being the second tight end in the 2017 Nebraska recruiting class. There is a thought that the Huskers will be also taking Kurt Rafdal in this cycle also. They will replace Sam Cotton, Cethan Carter and Trey Foster who will be done with their eligibility after this season.
That makes 14 verbals for Nebraska in this cycle, and nudges up the 247 average a bit. Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
