Sean Fisher, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound linebacker/safety from Millard North High School in Omaha (Neb.) finished his junior season with 92 tackles, 70 solos, four fumbles caused and three interceptions.
"I'm real physical," Fisher said. "I just try to be a leader and take charge on the field. I'm aggressive and go hard. I cover the whole field well and help anywhere I can.
Fisher benches 275 pounds, squats 495 and has a 33-inch vertical jump.
"I want to improve my overall speed, but I still want to add some weight," he said. "I'd like to be at around 225 pounds."
Fisher favors Nebraska and says the Huskers lead solidly over Iowa, Iowa State, Oklahoma and Colorado. The Sooners and Buffs have not offered yet. He also has offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado State and Vanderbilt.
"I'd really like to get an offer from Oklahoma," Fisher said. "I'm thinking about going to their camp this summer to get more attention from them. They are recruiting me, but we haven't talked about a scholarship.
"Oklahoma has always had a good rivalry with Nebraska and in the last five years they've been one of the top teams in the country."
Fisher grew up following Nebraska because his dad, Todd, played cornerback for the Huskers in the '80s. "They have great tradition and I love the fans," Fisher said. "Everyone in the state worships Nebraska football. Also, the coaches have done well considering the circumstances. They've changed their whole offense around and the team is getting back to their old winning ways. They even made it to the Big 12 championship last year. I've been impressed with what they've been able to accomplish."
The Huskers were Fisher's first offer in January and are only 45 minutes from his home. "I would definitely like to stay within driving distance. It'll be a factor."
He also attended the Nebraska Junior Day several weeks ago. "I can confidently say that they are my number one choice right now."
He also attended junior days at Iowa and Iowa State and will be attending the Kansas Junior Day on April 15. "I really like the campus at Iowa," Fisher said. "I like that they practice really hard and they have a really up-tempo and fast style. Everyone does what they are supposed to."
Fisher plans to make his decision during the early part of his season. "Tradition is important to me," he said. "The atmosphere is different at schools with good tradition. I want to play for people that care about football. It's a big deal for me and I want it to be a big deal to them too.
"I don't want to commit too early," he said. "I won't wait until February or anything, but it'll probably be around the beginning of the season."
He reports a 3.3 core GPA and is taking a first-time ACT on April 14. "I want to get into medicine and would like to go to med school."
