Talking USC visit, Huskers offer

It isn't very often that you hear a player from California say that they would like to get away from home to go to school. That is the preference though for Kevon Seymour when it comes to his college decision and with 10 offers already he will have his pick of where to go. The Huskers have offered Seymour, is he interested?

Kevon Seymour is getting a chance to get out and see some schools this spring. The 6-foot-0 and 170-pound cornerback from Pasadena (Calif.) Muir was at USC this past weekend for a spring game practice.

"I just visited USC on Saturday," Seymour said. "I was at one of their spring practices. I liked their practice. I saw around campus and the locker room. I like the way they have things organized at practice."

Seymour wasn't holding an offer going into the weekend and he didn't come away with one either. It seems that the USC staff will get a closer look at him later at a camp in April.

"I didn't get an offer yesterday, but we talked about it. It seemed like they were going to offer me yesterday, but I guess they are going to wait until the Rising Star camp in April 23rd."

USC might get a chance to host Seymour again as early as this coming Saturday; that is if he doesn't go to UCLA. He is also eyeing a camp in June up in Washington.

"I haven't been anywhere else so far, but I am probably going to go to a UCLA practice next Saturday if I don't go to a USC practice again. I might also go to the Washington camp in June. That's all I have planned."

Seymour says that he is committed to the sport of football on and off the field. He wanted to get better in every area from his junior year to his senior year.

"I just wanted to be more competitive. I am committed to the sport. I want to work harder in all areas, 24 hours a day; work, work, work.

"I really wanted to work on playing off in man, because I like pressing. It's different. I am a physical cornerback and take a receiver off of his route early."

Seymour has a double-digit offer total with offers from all over the nation including PAC 10, Big 10, Big 12 and SEC schools. No one is standing out and Seymour likes all of his offers.

"I have offers from New Mexico State, San Jose State, Washington, Nebraska, UCLA, Colorado, Florida, Oregon State, Arizona State and Arizona. I like them all."

The biggest thing for Seymour is fitting in when it comes to his college decision. He is looking at being comfortable there as well as who is on the depth chart. He would prefer to get away from home to go to school too.

"I am looking at how I am going to fit in. I have to be there for four years so I have to like it. I also want to look at their roster or their depth chart.

"I want to travel and my mom wants to too. I don't want to be close to home. I am looking forward to going away for school."

The Huskers are a team that recently entered the mix for Seymour. He said that he doesn't know a lot about the school and has only had one chance to talk to the Nebraska staff since they offered.

"Coach Corey Raymond is recruiting me from Nebraska. I got the offer from Nebraska on the 20th of March. I don't know a lot about the school. I just got the offer.

"He told me that I was a really good player and fit what they want to do on the field, but we didn't get to talk about what it's like there or the academics there."

While Seymour doesn't know a lot about the school he is interested in finding out more and says that the Huskers are definitely a team he's interested in. "I am interested in Nebraska. I really don't know a lot about Nebraska, but I would like to get to know more about them."
