Bar Milo had received word that Nebraska was looking at him and then the 2015 offensive tackle landed an offer from the Huskers, a big one for the West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade recruit who already has a connection to that program.
Last recruiting cycle, West Hills Chaminade four-star running back Terrell Newby signed with Nebraska and now Milo said he's going to take his new offer seriously moving forward.
"I heard they were looking at me," Milo said. "The day before I got it I got a letter from them and I was going to send in a questionnaire. I woke up in the morning and my coach told me to call them and I came up with another scholarship. It was a good way to start the day.
"Coach (Rich) Fisher gave the phone to the o-line coach, coach (John) Garrison, and we got to talk and he said if I went to Nebraska I'd have a great opportunity to get some playing time earlier. That always sounds good. I would have a chance to block for Terrell for one or two years."
The 6-foot-6, 305-pound offensive tackle said he would love to visit Nebraska but the off-season is coming to a close and there might not be a chance to get to Lincoln.
Milo planned to watch many Nebraska games this season to see Newby in the backfield and now he's definitely going to keep a close eye on the Huskers since he's been offered.
"I want to get out there but I know coach isn't going to want me to go out of state or anything," Milo said. "I might not even go up to Cal for a football game. Our first scrimmage is in like two weeks and then our first game is right after that and then there is no leaving. I have to commit myself to the team.
"I was already planning on watching Terrell play. I already had my eyes on Nebraska and now this gives me another reason to watch them."
So far, Milo has been offered by Cal, Miami, Nebraska and Washington. He said there is new interest coming in from Texas A&M, Tennessee and Indiana.
