As Nebraska continues its efforts in the 2020 recruiting class, it has also made scholarship offers across the country for 2021 and beyond. 

On Tuesday, one of those offers landed close to home. 

The Huskers offered a scholarship to Creighton Prep junior AJ Rollins, a multi-talented 215-pounder who is 6-foot-6 and being recruited as a tight end. 

This is Rollins' first known scholarship offer. 

Rollins is the third 2021 in-state prospect to earn the distinction, joining offensive tackle Teddy Prochazka (Elkhorn South) and defensive back Avante Dickerson (Omaha Westside). That means the 2021 class already features more in-state offers than the current 2020 crop, of which only verbal commit wide receiver Zavier Betts (Bellevue West) and wide receiver target Xavier Watts (Omaha Burke) have offers so far. 

Creighton Prep took part in Nebraska's team camp this week, and Rollins picked up the offer after NU coaches saw him up close and personal.
