Palm Bay (Fla.) Bayside defender Greg Miclisse picked up offers from Nebraska and Utah late last week. Miclisse is nearing double-digit offers and is hearing from several other BCS schools.
He feels fortunate to be considered as one of the top linebackers in the area.
Last summer, he attended the Rivals.com Underclassmen Challenge in Desoto, Texas and credits his performance in that event as a big reason for the college attention.

Miclisse said, "I feel very blessed. I'm humble with my opportunities. I like all of the coaching staffs that are interested in me. It just feels great to be in the position."
The Cornhuskers and Utes have told Miclisse that they like his film and what he brings to the table as an outside linebacker/rush end.
Right now he doesn't have a top five nor does he have a time frame on when he wants to make a decision.
The hard-hitting 'backer grew up a Notre Dame fan and has been in contact with a couple of Irish coaches. He has plans to visit South Bend in June and participate in the Notre Dame summer camp.
This fall he attended a USF game in addition to visiting Florida, Miami, South Carolina, and UCF over the last year and a half.
He enjoyed the trips to Gainesville and Columbia the most because of the facilities and the coaches at both schools.
Texas is checking in him as well according to Miclisse. He called Tennessee and South Carolina his biggest offers to date.
As a junior he registered 66 tackles, nine sacks, 18 tackles for loss, and three forced fumbles.
He benefits from playing alongside Rivals100 defensive tackle Travonte Valentine. Valentine commands double teams allowing Miclisse to operate one-on-one rushing the passer from a two-point stance. He is versatile enough to put his hand in the ground and drop into coverage.
