Lincoln North Star's Luke Reimer has scholarship offers from North Dakota, South Dakota and South Dakota State. He's hoping for more.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound linebacker was at Iowa State last weekend for an unofficial visit and Nebraska the week before that. He has an unofficial visit to South Dakota on Friday, South Dakota State on Saturday and Wyoming on April 21.
Reimer's journey to Lincoln North Star was a family decision after his father died last spring. Family is extremely important to him and that family feeling is first thing he looks for while visiting campuses.
"I care about how personable the coaches are and the relationships they are building with me and my family first," Reimer said. "The culture of the program and facilities are second."
Reimer and his high school teammates are going through a coaching change this season as Tony Kobza takes over for Mark Waller. When he isn't at a track meet or basketball game this spring and summer, Reimer will be working on getting to know Kobza and the new schemes.
"Coach (Kobza) is all about establishing a culture and trying to get a strong interest into building the program at North Star," Reimer said. "I am really excited to get to work with him."
Reimer is planning to attend camps at South Dakota State and Nebraska this summer. Kansas State, North Dakota State and Iowa are three other camp possibilities.
"This spring is important for me to get faster on the track," Reimer said. "At the same time, working on football-specific drills to get ready for camps."
Reimer grew up in southwestern Kansas and has siblings that attended Kansas State, but K-State isn't his dream school.
"If I had an offer on the table," Reimer said, "it would be Nebraska," because he doesn't "want to go through another coaching change."
