COLUMBIA, Mo. - One prospect that has been on the rise throughout the spring has been Omaha Westside tight end Tim Biere.
Biere has picked up scholarship offers so far from Colorado State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Ohio. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder continues to receive interest not only from the in-state school, Nebraska, but also several schools such as Iowa, Iowa State, and Northwestern. He followed up his recruiting success by picking up MVP honors at this past Saturday's NIKE Training Camp at the University of Missouri.
"Oh it was real nice," Biere said after the camp. "I wasn't expecting that at all. It was just real exciting for me. It felt good all day out there. You know, it's been about me going out and working everyday. It paid off out here."
"Coming to the camp, I just wanted to show my skills off and get my name out there a little bit."
The camps are not done for Biere who says he plans to get out to more campuses this summer. Some of those trips will be for camps and others will just be for unofficial visits.
"I think I'm going to get out to Iowa, Northwestern, Nebraska, Iowa State, and some others from there," Biere said. "Those will all be around June. Some of them I'll go to will be for one-day camps and some will be for unofficial visits. I can't say which ones will be which yet."
Biere says that he doesn't have a favorite school at this point let alone even a top five. He says that he still would like to get his commitment out of the way before his senior season, but he won't make that call until the timing is right.
"I'd like to have it done hopefully before the season so I can get it off my mind," Biere said. "It's really going to be whenever I feel comfortable."
Biere says that in-state school hasn't said anything about an offer yet, but he'll be looking to impress at their camp this summer.
"Nebraska coaches have just said they'd probably make a decision when I come to camp," Biere said about an offer from the Huskers.
