Amie breaks down decision

It's coming down to the wire Tyler (Texas) Lee three-star wide receiver Jacob Amie. Currently there are two top schools on his list but his late summer pick may not be the end of the recruiting process for this talented Texan.
The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder has been favoring Texas Tech and Nebraska over several other scholarship offers from the likes of Baylor, Colorado, Kansas State, Missouri, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and several others. Those two teams may be leading but some other schools are in the mix and fall visits aren't out of the question.
"Right now, I'm looking at the next two weeks to make a decision," Amie said. "We start two-a-days on Aug. 14 and I want to know before then. Texas Tech and Nebraska are going to be the two schools I probably choose from but Missouri, UCLA, and Oklahoma State are also up there too.
"Today, though, I'd say Texas Tech has an edge."
The edge to the Red Raiders has to do with several reasons, but none more important than position preference and recruiting attention.
"Well, I was talking to Tech really before anyone else," Amie said. "Since this time last year, I've been hearing from them. Plus, I really want to play receiver more than tight end. Nebraska wants me to play a tight end/H-back type of role."
Amie says there is a catch to his commitment in the next few weeks.
"My decision may change," Amie said. "I might have to change where I go after I take some visits this fall. I still plan on taking those even after my decision. I know I'll go to Tech and Nebraska and I'm trying to see Oklahoma State, Missouri, and UCLA."
The No. 72 rated prospect in Texas says that he hasn't had a ton of contact with UCLA since his phone numbers changed, but is still interested. Missouri's spread out offense and Oklahoma State recruiter Joe Wickline are big reasons why both of those Big 12 schools are in the mix for official visits.
Nebraska is at No. 2 and Amie says that though they're behind Tech, he still has high interest in their program.
"Well even though it's at tight end, I do have a chance to play early since they're going to be losing some of those guys in the next couple years," Amie said. "Coach Randy Jordan has been real cool and straight about things with me."
Regardless of what happens after his commitment, Amie is very honest about his position.
"It's looking like I'm going to commit to Texas Tech," he said. "That's how it is today at least."
