Nebraska offer interests Beaver

Brandon Beaver has lots of offers but the Compton (Calif.) Dominguez cornerback picked up one Monday that really stuck out from Nebraska and now Beaver is trying to figure out when he can visit Lincoln.
A trip will probably have to wait for an official visit but Beaver, rated No. 114 nationally by Rivals.com, said he's really excited about the Huskers and their tradition of producing top-notch defensive backs.
"I really like Nebraska," Beaver said. "I've been waiting to hear from them. I really like the coaches and the players. I've talked with coach Carl Pelini and it's definitely a school I'm interested in learning more about it.
"I really like the history there with their cornerbacks and I just really like the tradition of the program there."
Nebraska is the latest offer for Beaver, who also has Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Fresno State, New Mexico, New Mexico State, SMU, Tennessee, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State on his offer list. Many other schools are showing interest.
Beaver said he definitely would like to visit Nebraska before making his decision.
"I want to get out there and see how the school is and I want to see what the environment is like," Beaver said. "It's something I'm going to be ready for."
Recently, Beaver and Compton Dominguez teammates Alphonso Marsh and Dejon Allen visited Washington and the Huskies have moved to the top of Beaver's list.
Although he's not ready to make a decision yet, Beaver said Washington is the school to beat at this point but with other major offers coming in nothing is a done deal yet.
"They're at the top of the list," Beaver said of the Huskies. "I'm going to wait it out. I was probably as close as you can be to committing over the weekend but I want to weigh some of my opportunities and see what else happens."
