The Nebraska football recently hosted a talented defensive end and it appears they were able to impress him with what they showed him. Regen Terry is one of those players that would go a long way towards making sure the Huskers can have a defensive front that would strike fear in opponents. The issue now, of course, is that there's still plenty of worries that he might commit somewhere else.

Lone Big Ten team

During his visit to see the only B1G team that that has given him an official offer, Terry announced that he was quite impressed with what he saw. "Had a phenomenal visit at Nebraska today," he said, and then went on to thank the three coaches who had hosted him on the visit.

That could be an in for the defensive end, who is "just" a 3-star prospect but has seen the number of teams that are after him grow quite quickly. He's the 17th best player in the state of Arizona and the 27th best defensive end in the 2020 class overall.

Neither of those numbers are likely to get people too excited but they are also impressive enough that the Nebraska football team should indeed be aiming to bring him to Lincoln. They're going to need to get past a swath of Pac 12 schools as well as one program from the east coast if they end up landing him.

Including the Cornhuskers, Regen Terry has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, and others. He's also gotten offers from Kansas State and Boston College.

The BC offer might be the most interesting simply because it's a part of the country that he doesn't have a ton of interest from.

Defensive line a focus for Huskers

The Cornhuskers have clearly made the front a big focus for their recruiting efforts in the last few weeks. That includes hosting players like Perrion Winfrey for official visits.

Winfrey is in a different situation for a couple of different reasons, including the fact that he's a more polished college football player, thanks to his time at Iowa Western.

Winfrey is also a defensive tackle, as opposed to working on the end. Both he and Regen Terry are in the 2020 class and it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility that both could end up Huskers.

If Scott Frost and company are going to land Terry, they are going to have to overcome the regional bias that comes from most players on the west coast.

The Nebraska football team is going to have to make sure they show the defensive end what it is about the state and the city of Lincoln that makes Memorial stadium a destination for players from around the country. In that regard, it appears they have made inroads. Now it's all about keeping the pressure up and trying to get him back to Lincoln for another visit so that he starts to think of it as home.
