Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini was spotted at two schools (that we know of) today -- Countryside and Tarpon Springs.

Countryside junior OT Tyler Moore is a Cornhuskers commit, but Pelini also is showing interest in Cougars junior DB Alex Dixon, according to Moore’ father. Apparently, Nebraska would like Dixon, who has offers from Florida State and West Virginia, to attend the program’s Junior Day this spring along with Moore.

After stopping at Countryside, Pelini made his way to Tarpon Springs.

Spongers coach George Kotis confirmed Pelini’s visit, and said the coach was there to check out four juniors -- RB Darius Daniels, OL Zach DeBell, PK Michael Hill and DT Brodrick Lee. DeBell already has an offer from Minnesota; Lee, however, might be the top prospect of the bunch.
