Nebraska has been sending recruiting mail to Christo Kourtzidis for some time and earlier this week the Huskers finally offered the Orange (Calif.) Lutheran tight end who's up to five offers early on.
"They've been sending me stuff for a while," Kourtzidis said. "I like them. They definitely have the college town going for them. Over there in Lincoln, that's what they're about is college football."
Nebraska, Colorado, Florida State, Washington and Washington State have offered the 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect who said he's in no rush to make a decision. The atmosphere at Nebraska does stand out to the Southern California prospect who will probably visit before his senior season.

"I like to lean toward more of a college town instead of a town where no one really cares about the team," Kourtzidis said. "I think I'm going to try to get out there over the summer whether it's just visiting the school and meeting the coaches or for a camp but I'm going to try to get out there.
"They have two guys who are going to be juniors this year at tight end so they'll be there for a year but other than that I'm not sure."
A trip to Florida State is also expected next month. He will be in Tallahassee to check out the campus and talk to the coaching staff although Kourtzidis claims no favorites at this point in his recruitment. He said he plans to take visits to all the other schools that have offered him as well.
On top of the five offers Kourtzidis has already received, he is also getting interest from Cal, Oregon and others.
