Nebraska Football Recruiting: Huskers Targeting Four-Star Hawaiian OL

Nebraska Cornhuskers offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh has stated his desire to open a pipeline in Hawaii, 2016 four-star lineman Michael Eletise is his top target.

“Coach Cavanaugh and I talk sometimes,”Cavanaugh said, via 247sports. “We’ve talked about Nebraska. It’s a good school. I really like it and I’ve heard a lot about it. I have a shirt that says Nebraska on it. Two of the pastors my dad works with are from Nebraska so they tell us about it all the time. Coach and I are trying to build a relationship. The first time it was about the school and everything but now it’s more about just talking. It’s just stuff in general. He’s a very easy guy to talk to. I can tell him what I think. It’s easy to just let him know."

The 6'4", 302-pounder has visited Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA and USC, but said the coaches at Nebraska have been very complementary towards him.

“Coaches tell me I have a good technique and that I can definitely play, but more than that they say I’m a good kid because they’ve talked to my coaches,” he said. “They tell me they hear I’m a nice kid, I’m respectful and that I do my work. I think it’s just that I try really hard to make good on what I say I’ll do. Effort is in everything I do. I’m always trying to do everything I can and be respectful of everyone. Lots of people can play ball and the coaches say that but I think it’s my character that makes me stand out.”

Eletise has more than 20 offers, but said he has no leaders at this time.
