Blair (Neb.) linebacker Jake Schany received four written offers in August from Colorado, Tulane, Ohio and South Dakota State. One of those schools currently holds a slight lead for the 6-2, 210-pound linebacker, but he is not yet ready to commit.
"My thinking right now is play probably the first two games, get my film together and send it out to the schools that are on the borderline, which would be K-State, Iowa State and Iowa," Schany said. "I'll see what they think from there and if they don't want to do anything, I'll probably commit somewhere after that."
Atop Schany's leader board is Colorado, where the Nebraska prospect visited for a camp earlier this summer.
"They are probably, right now, the school that jumps out to me the most," Schany said. "I think I will go and take official visits to Tulane and Ohio just to see them and not completely rule them out."
Colorado assistant coach Brian Cabral is Schany's recruiting contact in Boulder. With preparation for football season underway, it has been a little while since the two parties have talked, but Schany still has fond memories of his camp experience.
"The campus is great, I really like the coaches and it was just kind of a nice environment out there," Schany.
The Buffaloes project Schany as an inside linebacker in the defensive scheme. The Nebraska native feels that is a good fit for his skill set, and received positive feedback on his play there from Cabral.
"I went to their camp and he really liked me there," Schany said. "I think they said they are taking one or two more, so I still have a little more time."
Other schools Schany may visit this fall include South Dakota State and Nebraska, although he has not been in contact with the Cornhuskers for some time.
Schany opens his senior season Friday night. He is looking to improve upon a junior season in which he recorded 126 total tackles, including 83 solo stops.
"I definitely want to improve from last season and show people I can be a playmaker out there, not just a difference-maker," Schany said. "Hopefully I will get a little more pass [coverage] experience because last year we didn't have teams pass on us that much and that is one of the things a lot of coaches said they couldn't see on film."
