Seward offensive lineman Tyler Lenz is taking his recruitment one day at a time.

The 6-4, 250​-pound senior holds seven scholarship offers and has been in regular contact with Nebraska and a few others.

Lenz took a game day visit to Nebraska for the South Alabama game on Aug. 31.

"Everything," Lenz said when asked about what he liked most. "It's every kid from Nebraska's dream to be in Memorial Stadium and to get the opportunities that I have gotten makes it even better. Everything about the place is just amazing."

Lenz visited perennial power Northwest Missouri State, NAIA Morningside and Midland this summer. Northwest Missouri State and Morningside have offered as well as UNK, Missouri Western State, Minnesota State Mankato and Division III Nebraska Wesleyan.

At the FBS level, Wyoming has shown interest. Lenz visited the Cowboys' campus in March and is planning a return trip this fall.

"We are trying to get up to Wyoming and finding dates that work it," he said."There are a lot of places and I understand there are a lot of schools that probably aren't talking to me now that could be inviting me in the future."

FCS South Dakota State and DII's Sioux Falls and Wayne State are three schools that have shown interest but haven't offered yet.

"I'll wait until after the season to make a decision unless an offer comes up that I know I don't want to miss out on," Lenz said.

Despite the recruiting attention, Lenz is focused on getting better on the and off the field.

"I always need to improve in the weight room and getting stronger everyday," he said. "Being a vocal leader and being there for my teammates and helping them understand what needs to be done. The third thing is my footwork. That is something I always work on and I worked hard in the offseason on my speed an agility."

Lenz said his work in pass protection is among his best attributes.

"I think I'm pretty good in the open field whether it be a screen or outside zone and putting our running back in a good positions," he said. "Also doubling down on the down block is something I think I recognize well."
