Farlee in Lincoln this weekend

The Nebraska staff hasn't extended any offers to a player from Nebraska, but they are definitely looking at a good number of recruits from in-state. One of the players that the Huskers are apparently interested in is Drew Farlee, a kicker, from Norfolk (Nebr.) Catholic. Farlee was in Lincoln this weekend for the spring game.

Drew Farlee from Norfolk (Nebr.) Catholic was in Lincoln for the spring game today. He caught up with Big Red Report immediately following the game.

"We are actually eating in the Hawks," Farlee said. "We had a good time. It was definitely a good game. I liked it. There are some open possibilities for kicking it looks like."

There probably isn't a single area that took bigger losses at Nebraska when it comes to graduation. Farlee is well aware of the departures from Lincoln.

"Nebraska took some huge losses in the kicking game from last year to this year with Adi Kunalic and Alex Henery graduating. They are still pretty good though."

Farlee was in Lincoln a few hours before the start of the game and he had a chance to take a tour, eat lunch and hear the head coach and athletic director address the recruits before moving down to the field for pre-game.

"We took a tour of some of the facilities and the stadium before the game, ate at the Hawks and then Bo Pelini and Tom Osborne spoke to all of the recruits.

"All of the recruits were on the sideline and got a chance to watch the players warm up. We weren't in the locker room before the game though. We were on the field when the tunnel walk came on."

Farlee came away impressed with the spring game and Nebraska's efforts on the field. "I really liked it. I think that Nebraska looked good. Their offense looks good considering its being installed and the defense looks really good."

Farlee will be coming back to Nebraska in June for the kicking academy so the Nebraska staff can get a better look at him. "The Nebraska coaches said that they want me to come to the kicking academy later in June. They just want to have a good chance to evaluate me."

There is a lot of interest right now from mostly schools in the area, but Farlee's 4.0 GPA is opening some other windows as well. "I am getting a lot of letters from Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Drake and some Ivy League schools."

Besides the Nebraska spring game Farlee might be in Des Moines next weekend and then its onto Iowa City and Lincoln again for kicking camps. "I might go to Drake's spring game. I am going to Iowa for their kicking camp and to Nebraska's spring game."
