Goodman will visit Nebraska

Nebraska secured the commitment of offensive lineman Paul Thurston for the 2012 class and they might only be taking one other lineman. There are plenty of linemen considering the Huskers, but one very interested lineman is planning on seeing Nebraska later this month.

The Huskers will have a small recruiting class for 2012 and there might only be two offensive line recruits in the class. Evan Goodman from Lakeland (Flor.) says that he is trying to get up to Nebraska later this month.

"I am setting up some visits right now," Goodman said. "I am trying to get up to Nebraska this summer then over to Notre Dame, Purdue and some other schools like that. Then head down to Auburn.

"I will probably make those trips later in July. I don't have anything set up for sure yet, but it should be sometime this month."

Goodman hasn't been to Nebraska before, but he knows quite a bit about it already. He has been hearing a lot about it from his potential position coach at Nebraska who he speaks to regularly.

"I know that the tradition is a big thing at Nebraska. Nebraska is also known for their offensive lineman and the tradition there. All of the coaches have been active recruiting me, especially Coach John Garrison."

Coach Garrison is new to the Nebraska staff as a full-time coach, but one thing is for sure and that is he's taking to it like a duck to water. Garrison is fairly young and seems to be relating well to the recruits he's speaking with.

"He's really easy to talk to. He's young. I think that he played in the league for a while too. We have a good connection."
