Sean Fisher, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound, three-star linebacker from Millard North High School in Omaha (Neb.) has doubled his amount of scholarship offers in the last two months, upping his total to 14.
Some of Fisher's latest offers are from Colorado, Northwestern, Washington, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona State and Wisconsin. "My feeling now is that I'd like to decide before our season gets going," he said. "I want to enjoy my senior season and not have this decision over my head."
Fisher, ranked No. 21 in the midlands by Scout.com, continues to favor Nebraska, which he now says leads slightly over Oklahoma, Arkansas and Iowa State. He grew up following the Huskers but their large lead has taken somewhat of a hit with the recent influx of offers he's received.
"There's more to consider now because I have a lot more schools that have offered me. But I still really like Nebraska. I talk with them frequently and like the coaches a lot. I talk with (linebacker) coach Kevin Cosgrove and (offensive line) coach Dennis Wagner a lot. I know them pretty well, especially coach Wagner because he was the one that first started recruiting me and has been with me since the beginning. I really like the whole staff though and just feel comfortable around them. They say that I'd make a good outside 'backer for them."
He plans on attending the Huskers' camp this summer. Fisher visited both Oklahoma and Arkansas this past weekend. "I love the program at Oklahoma," Fisher said. "It's so well known. Everybody knows OU football. Coach Bob Stoops and his staff have done a great job. The main thing that stood out about the campus was how close everything was. Everything is just within a few blocks. All you need is right there.
"I also got to talk with the coaches and (assistant head) coach Brent Venables went over their schemes with me and how I'd fit in and everything. We even got to watch some film together.
"Arkansas was a nice place too," Fisher said. "They have great facilities and I really like talking with (head) coach Houston Nutt. He's just a really personable guy and easy to talk to."
Fisher says he hopes to make a decision before the end of summer. "I've already been to Oklahoma and Arkansas and I know Nebraska really well too. I'd like to visit Iowa State one more time and talk to their coaches before I make my decision."
He reports a 3.3 core GPA and has a 27 ACT.
