2017 Nebraska offensive lineman Brett Kitrell previews his upcoming weekend visit to Minneapolis and the Golden Gophers

2017 Nebraska offensive lineman Brett Kitrell previews his upcoming weekend visit to Minneapolis to visit the Golden Gophers. Kitrell goes in-depth with GopherDigest.


"I'll be coming up to Minnesota on Thursday and I'm very excited to get up there!," Nebraska offensive lineman Brett Kitrell said to GopherDigest. "We'll be leaving on Thursday morning to drive the six hours to Minneapolis, have the unofficial visit on Friday and probably will be driving home immediately afterwards. I've been keeping in close contact with coach Miller this week about the visit and he's been telling me that they're excited for me to get up there for a visit and to see the place. I just camped at Nebraska on Monday as well, and I thought it went well. Coach Parella said he'd for sure be in touch here soon, so I'm not sure about an offer or anything like that. He just told me I had a good camp though, so we'll just have to see."


It'll be a full family affair this weekend in Dinkytown for the Kitrell's. 

"For family coming with, I'll have my father Brett, my mother Amy, my head coach Ryan Thompson and my younger brother Bryce Kitrell with," Kitrell explained to Scout.com. "We're going to see the football facilities and also see the academic side of Minnesota. I will also be spending a lot of time with coach Miller to see what he'd be like as a coach. I will also get the opportunity to have a meeting with head coach Tracy Claeys. I'd say what I'm most looking forward to about the visit this weekend is I'm excited to meet some more of their coaches and just to see if Minnesota is the right fit for me to play my college football at. Their location from home isn't bad for me and it's only about six hours apart."

A potential commitment isn't out of the question for the Nebraska offensive lineman. 

"I have serious interest in Minnesota as they're definitely very high on my list of schools," Kitrell told GopherDigest. "Coach Miller is a great guy and coach, and I can see myself playing for him. Minnesota has a great football program that I could possibly see myself being apart of. It'll be good to see more of what they have to offer on this trip. I don't know about a Minnesota commitment on this trip, but it's possible in the future. It will be good to take this visit so I can see everything up there again and see what my family thinks as well. I don't have any other visits or camps planned after this. Just some camps with my team."
