June 8, 2005The state of Nebraska typically puts out some quality Division I prospects and this year's haul appears to be following in those footsteps.

At the top of the list is Nebraska commit D.J. Jones of Omaha (Neb.) Central who collected offers from a number of regional schools before committing to the in-state Huskers.
The majority of the top 10 comes from the state's largest city in Omaha with fellow in-state commit Ricky Henry a two-way player who looks good on both sides of the ball.
From there the list shifts to the wide receiver spot in Lincoln (Neb.) North Star prospect Derrick Russell who sits at the No. 3 spot. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound stand-out player already holds his first offer from Kansas State after an impressive NIKE Camp performance at Kansas State.
Speed continues at the next two spots with safety Jeff Tarpanian (No. 4) and Russell's teammate Tyler Bullock (No. 5) who both fared well at camps this past spring.
A sleeper quarterback in North Platte (Neb.) gunslinger Nathan Enderle emerges from under the shadows to the No. 6 spot and his 6-foot-5 frame is already drawing plenty of looks from several colleges.
The Omaha area trend continues throughout the next few spots with large offensive tackle Cole Bunner of Elkhorn (Neb.) Mount Michael (No. 7) and two Millard North standouts in speedy safety Corey Young (No. 8) and inside linebacker Paul Homer who are both receiving regional interest.
Coming at the No. 10 spot is one of the better punters to come out of the state in the last several years in Alex Henery of Burke High School who may be receiving offers to go along with his vast amounts of special teams interest.
The list was compiled by Rivals.com regional recruiting analyst John Talman and HuskersIllustrated.com publisher Sean Callahan.
It appears that the state of Nebraska is being searched by more schools each year and this year's top ten is evidence of that.
