"Coach Garrison pulled me and my family aside and said that he was offering me. He said that he really liked my film, that he liked how I played and liked how we worked together going back to summer camp."
The Huskers join an impressive group of offers that Gaylord already held. Still, the offer from the Huskers excited him because of the tradition, academics and the fans at Nebraska.
"This offer from Nebraska was exciting to me. They have great tradition and great academics as well as a great gameday atmosphere. Their fans are great."
The game on Friday wasn't the first for this top junior. He had been there one other time this season and again this spring for the annual Red-White game.
"I attended the spring game and went to the Wyoming game this season so this was my third time seeing a game in Lincoln.
"Their crowd gives me chills," Gaylord said. "Their fans are just very nice and it's just a great atmosphere. I did the tunnel walk with the other recruits before the Wyoming game."
Gaylord plays multiple sports for Baldwin City and the second one will be starting soon. He says that during the winter sport season he also trains trying to keep his weight and strength up.
"I play basketball and do track. I train while I am playing basketball trying to keep my weight up."
The visit to Nebraska will be the first of two that he will make this week with the second being today. Gaylord is heading east to check out this SEC school later today.
"I am planning on being in Missouri on Saturday and beyond that I haven't given any thoughts to any other visits or plans through the winter or spring."
