Huskers Offer West Scranton Duo
"Nebraska offered me to play linebacker for them today," Bodtmann said. "My coach told me that they had been asking about me and I was just happy to be getting the interest, but then I called and spoke to the staff and they said I had everything they were looking for in a linebacker. Last night I called back again and was told that I had a scholarship from them."
"When I got off the phone it finally hit me and I was dumbfounded to be honest with you," Bodtmann explained. "I am very, very excited about this offer, not because it's my first, but because it's from Nebraska. My father grew up a Husker fan, so I did as well and it doesn't get any bigger for me. They just brought in the defensive staff from LSU and have great tradition and pride in their program. I really can't find the words to explain what's going through my head right now."
Other schools have also been showing increased interest in the Scranton athlete.
"Pittsburgh reviewed my film at fullback and liked it, so the defensive staff is checking me out at linebacker now," Bodtmann stated. "I also spoke with Coach Johns at Northwestern last night and he is about to start reviewing my film too."
Nebraska didn't stop at Bodtmann with the offers as they also extended one to his teammate Eric Shrive, putting him at roughly 24 offers so far.
