Junior offensive lineman Alex Conn has received offers from Nebraska, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Arizona and Texas Christian University.

“The first one was expected,” Conn said. “Then I got six more and I was surprised.”

Conn, who is 6-foot-6, has the size that college coaches want for offensive linemen.

“With his size and speed it doesn’t surprise me at all,” coach Brandon Clark said. “He has D1 written all over him.”

Conn has some time to decide where he wants to go. He has gone on a few visits to some of the schools and watched them play.

“I’m just staying humble about it. I mean it’s only seven offers,” Conn said.

Conn plans on attending some camps over the summer to see how he likes the different ways the various colleges do things.

As of now he is undecided, but says he has a couple schools in mind.  

“Enjoy it,” Clark said. “College is fun and you have a lot of opportunities, but have fun this senior season and don’t forget about the guys you’ve always played with.”
