Clark rates Nebraska a "10"

There were five official visitors in Lincoln this weekend, but a lot of people were fired up to see James Clark from New Smyrna Beach (Flor.) on the visitor list. Those same people will be excited to hear that Clark enjoyed his time in Lincoln this weekend.

James Clark from New Smyrna Beach (Flor.) was in Nebraska this weekend for an official visit. The four-star wide receiver said that the visit went well and he was very impressed with the stadium.

"It went really well," Clark said. "I enjoyed it a lot. Probably the best thing I did all weekend was walking into the stadium. It was really amazing to see."

The Nebraska staff set up Clark with two hosts for the weekend. They both happened to be wide receivers which was important for Clark because he wanted to get an idea about being part of the team.

"My host for the first day was Jordan Westerkamp and on the second day it was Quincy Enunwa. It was good to spend some time with those guys. It's important to get a feel for the players."

One of the more humorous things to happen this weekend was when Clark posted on Twitter that he was eating fried gator tail on his visit. This after picking up a Florida offer just a week or so ago.

"Yeah, I didn't really even think about it until after I had posted that on Twitter. It was good. It was funny."

The facilities was something that Clark really came away impressed with. There is a commitment to the student-athlete at Nebraska to put all of the tools right there that are needed to succeed.

"Nebraska has the whole package when it comes to facilities. They have the athletic and the academic facilities. Ndamukong Suh has done a lot of great things too giving back to the university for their weight room and the iPads on the lockers too."

One of the concerns that people might have is bringing in a recruit from a warmer climate to Nebraska in January. Clark said that Nebraska was cold, but in a lot of ways it wasn't as cold as he would have thought.

"The weather was cold, but it wasn't too bad at all. It was really alright. I didn't think that it was too much that I couldn't handle it."

Clark gave the official visit to Nebraska a perfect score. He didn't know what to expect, but the visit exceeded any expectations that he did have. He couldn't think of anything that he would like to change.

"Rating the visit against my expectations I would say that the Nebraska visit was a "10". I really can't think of anything that I would want to change about the visit or the school."

Things are just picking up for Clark. He has two visits set up for the remaining weekends in January. There is another school that might be interested in entering the picture and could throw a wrench into things.

"I have a Clemson visit set up for next weekend and Florida is the week after that. Ohio State just called me and asked if they could get into the picture, so I don't know what's going to happen. I probably won't make a decision until signing day."
