Onwuasor set to see Nebraska

Nebraska went out to California and nabbed a very under-rated wide receiver in Quincy Enunwa who has seen time this year as a true freshman. On paper, Enunwa and Patrick Onwuasor look very similar and Onwuasor is coming in to see Nebraska to play Texas this weekend.

A big visitor to add to the list this weekend for Nebraska is Inglewood (Calif.) wide receiver, Patrick Onwuasor. Coach Victor Prince confirmed that Onwuasor is coming in and he's trying to as well.

"He'll be there," Coach Victor Prince said. "I am working on going, but as of right now it doesn't look like I will be able to go. Patrick is definitely going to be there."

Onwuasor has been keeping his cards pretty close to his vest when it comes to favorites, but Coach Prince says he has a pretty good idea what Onwuasor thinks of Nebraska.

"I think that he likes Nebraska. He likes Nebraska a lot. He really doesn't want to be on the west coast. He's really feeling Nebraska a lot.

"That's all I can really say. Oregon, the Washington schools, USC and other schools showed a little interest, but he's really high on Nebraska. He might get mad at me for saying that, but he really likes Nebraska."

Coach Prince has high praise for Onwuasor on the field and off the field. He really says that Onwuasor's best days of football are ahead of him.

"He's physical. He works hard. He eats weights. He can run, really eager to run. He's an empty sponge right now. He's just eating ball out."

Onwuasor is a 6-foot-2 and 175-pounds and it's said that he runs a 4.5. That could equate to playing either the flanker or the slot, but Coach Prince thinks that Onwuasor is better suited to play one over the other.

"I think that he's better suited for the X spot. He's more of a one on one guy. I don't think that he has the speed to play inside, but on the outside can out maneuver a corner or just be more physical.

"He gets vertical though, quick. I know that people say that he runs a 4.5, but on Friday nights when he's running game speed it wouldn't surprise me if you timed him and he was faster than that."
