Andre James offer list is rounding out nicely. On Wednesday, Nebraska joined the fray and became the tenth school to invite James, 6-foot-5 offensive tackle, to join its football team.
Nebraska is the second Big 10 school to offer James, but the Herriman (Utah) High School prospect has no conference preference. Instead, he's inspecting individual schools, and there's a long way to go in the process of familiarizing himself with the Huskers' program.
"I don't know too much, but I'm excited," James said. "The timing kind of surprised me because they stopped talking to me for a little bit before they offered, but it's exciting."
James doesn't plan on taking many unofficial visits this offseason and touring schools particularly far away from his Utah-based family home will be especially difficult. He may wait until it comes time to take official visits to do much traveling. But that's not necessarily bad news for Nebraska.
"I've been talking with my parents, and we're kind strapped for funds for any more visits, but I could see myself taking an official out there for sure," James said. "I definitely want to visit and learn more."
Nebraska assistant Ron Brown is spearheading James' recruitment for Nebraska. Other schools heavily involved in James' recruitment include BYU, Oregon State, Notre Dame and USC. No member of that group has offered a scholarship at this juncture, but their involvement is the reason James shies away from naming frontrunners or discussing favorites.
"I want to just keep an open mind to all schools," he said.
