Latest News on Nebraska High School Football College Offers and Commitments for Class of 2013
Lee Carhart, a 6-5, 275 lbs. O-lineman out of Creighton Prep, recently committed to the University of Northern Iowa.
In 2012 Carhart was a consensus first team all-state selection for the Junior Jays, grabbing the honor from both the Omaha World-Herald’s All-Nebraska and the Lincoln Journal Star’s Super-State football teams.
The UNI Panthers have consistently been ranked among top FCS football programs in the country ever since they began competing in the Missouri Valley conference back n 1985. In that time span UNI has won a remarkalble15 Missouri Valley Conference championships. However, the Panthers uncharacteristically took a step backwards in 2012 by only posting a 5-6 record. It was the Panthers first losing season since 1982.
Although I know the the Panthers recruit Nebraska, for some odd reason it’s rare —and unfortunate—that they actually land one. I mean UNI is really a top-notch football program that always seems to compete well against the supposedly superior FBS schools.
Carhart looks to be a strong pickup for the Panthers program: He’s:an agile big man with a long frame—capable of playing at every position across the O-line. If he stays healthy and progresses as expected, Carhart has the base frame and skills to develop into at least an all-conference-type lineman for the Panthers.
