Huskers still in the picture?

Nebraska started making a push for a tight end a few weeks into the season and one of the top names they came across was Darien Bryant. Bryant, a tight end from Pickerington (Ohio) North has already seen Nebraska, just returned from North Carolina and is eyeing a trip the first part of December to Hawaii. Are the Huskers still in the picture?

Darien Bryant has been busy recently. He's been to see Nebraska and North Carolina officially in the past 4-5 weeks and is set to leave on another official visit next weekend. Those will be his three official visits.

"Things are going good," "I just went to North Carolina. I am going to leave December 2nd and come back the 7th from Hawaii. Those are my two officials beyond Nebraska."

Bryant did take a fourth trip in there, but that visit was actually an unofficial visit as opposed to an official visit. "I went to West Virginia, but that was an unofficial visit. That was for their homecoming visit, but it wasn't an official. I was there for an unofficial visit."

The Nebraska staff has been contacting Bryant as much as they can, once a week, and driving home how much they want him. Bryant is at the top of their tight end list it seems.

"We have been staying in touch. I talk with Coach Ron Brown at least once a week as a matter of a fact he called me tonight and I am going to call him back.

"He was telling me that there is one spot in the class and he told me that I am the guy he wants. They had a lot of injuries this year and they need someone to come in.

"When they went through all of those injuries someone gave him film of some top tight ends and I was the guy they wanted to come after. He has been stressing to me that I am his guy."

Bryant was trying to graduate at mid-term and at the time of the Nebraska official visit it wasn't looking too good. It seems that there have been some improvements in this area since his official visit. "It's looking better. It's not 100% sure for me yet, but it's looking good."
