Omaha (Neb.) Central tight end Nate Prater has had several schools call already this month as he has gotten his first game under his belt.
“I have gotten a lot of calls,” the 6-foot-4, 250-pound Prater said. “Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Michigan, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Nebraska are some of them.”
The Huskers are a new school to be pursuing Prater.
“They called and talked to me. It was one of the first times I had heard from them in quite a while. I went down to their game last weekend. The new passing offense looked pretty good. Their tight end Matt Herian caught seven passes, including two touchdowns and 98 receiving yards. For a tight end, that is a great day, and it certainly caught my eye.”
Prater is not nearing a decision.
“I’m really no closer to a decision. I’m just waiting. After my next couple games, I’ll have some more offers, I think. After those games, coaches will have more to watch of me playing. I don’t have any visits set yet. Some of them are talking about having me come, but I don’t have any dates set, yet. I’m thinking about taking an official in November to Kansas State. Nothing is set, though.”
In Prater’s first game, his team beat cross-town rival Omaha North.
“We won the first one. We beat Omaha North 33-20. We only threw 9 passes. We just pounded it down their throat. I caught a two point conversion and one deep pass for about 80 yards.”
