Grixby Has Two Visits in Books, More To Come?

Very little has changed for Cortney Grixby, the No. 2 nationally ranked cornerback from Nebraska.

Grixby, who has already taken visits to Iowa and Nebraska, still has Kansas State, Notre Dame, and UCLA in his top five as well. Visits to the other programs are planned for January, though not officially scheduled yet. Each of the top five have extended offers.

"I want to visit all of the schools, but I could just one or two more," he said. "We'll just wait and see how everything goes for now."

But while saying he may decide to not take all his visits, he said he for sure wants to visit the Wildcats. His visit with the Cornhuskers was on the same weekend that K-State defeated Nebraska 38-9.

"It was good to see both schools on the trip, but I would have been at the game anyway because my brother plays for Nebraska," said the self-proclaimed Husker fan forever. "It was a good game, but it wasn't really uncomfortable being there for me because I'm being recruited by both schools."

But through the recruiting process, the aspect of K-State that continues to grab Grixby's attention is the winning tradition and players K-State sends to the next level.

"Overall, it's just a great program," said Grixby, who had 71 tackles and four interceptions as a junior. "They have good coaches and a solid foundation for turning out great players every year."

Ironically, K-State's victory in Lincoln, may have been the final straw regarding the future of Nebraska's coaching staff and may too put Grixby's future decision in question as well.

"If they left, I may reconsider and look at other schools," he said. "I'm not entirely sure right now. There's a lot that can happen. We'll just have to wait and see. I'm not sure what's all going on there with the coaches."

Grixby plans to have a decision in late January.


On growing up in Nebraska

"Everyone who grows up here follows Nebraska. They represent the state. It's all we have. Generations in my family have all been fans."

On a possible decision to attend KSU, while his family are Husker fans…

"They'll support me whatever I do I know. It might be hard for them at first, but I know they would cheer for K-State if I was there. They would get used to it."

On playing early…

"I really don't have a preference. If I need time to develop, I'll redshirt, but if I'm better than someone in front of me, I'd like the opportunity to win the position."
