Phone calls coming for Nebraska TE

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.”
