Offer dateApril 6, 2016

Judge Culpepper received an offer from the Huskers on April 6, 2016.

Culpepper could play tight end or defensive end on the next level. While many schools are recruiting him to play offense, the Huskers are interested in him as a defensive lineman with John Parrella as his lead recruiter. NU was the first school to offer him as a defensive end.

On March 17, Parrella tweeted about looking forward to welcoming a recruit from Tampa for the spring game. Culpepper would make that visit about a month later, attending NU's spring game on April 15.

Afterward, Culpepper spoke highly of the visit in an interview with The World-Herald:

“Nebraska really wants to have me and they were excited about me being up,” Judge Culpepper said. “My dad and Coach Parrella, they played around the same time so they talked some old ball for a little bit. It was just a really good, productive visit. It was good stuff.”

He also posted a tweet that said: "Thank you @HuskerFBNation @Huskers @Coach_Parrella for a great day! There is no place like Nebraska!"

But Culpepper committed to Penn State on July 14.

Culpepper's father was a defensive linemen at Florida and then in the NFL. His brother signed with Syracuse as a quarterback in the 2016 class.
