Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike four-star defensive end David Kenney was Iowa's first commitment in the class of 2013, but his recruitment has continued into the fall and on Tuesday he landed an offer from the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
"It came out of the blue," Kenney said. "I know the d-line coach pretty well because he was a coach at Iowa."
Kenney said he is happy to have the offer from Nebraska, but is not sure how they will factor into his recruitment going forward. He has not discussed taking a visit to Lincoln, and is not sure whether one will happen during his recruitment.

Kenney has made a couple visits to Indiana this fall to attend Hoosiers home games, but he said there was not much to read into those trips.
"They weren't really trips," Kenney said. "I just went up there to watch the game. I just have a lot of friends up there.
"I'm still verbally [committed] to Iowa."
Kenney has helped Pike get out to a 6-3 record this season, and has totaled five sacks from his defensive end spot. He is seeing much less activity on his side than he did a year ago when current Iowa State freshman Pierre Aka played the opposite defensive end spot.
"They'll try to run at me at first, then see that's not going to work," Kenney said.
