Stafford set to leave

It's been a long, grueling process for Daimion Stafford. Getting academically qualified to play at Nebraska has been hard work, but it's a drop in the bucket when he starts talking about the effort that he's prepared to give once he gets to Lincoln. When can Husker fans anticipate that he will be in Lincoln and what is he looking forward to the most?

Daimion Stafford finally has a date set to arrive in Lincoln. The junior college safety from Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Chaffey JC says that his flight from California to Nebraska is next week.

"I leave Tuesday," Stafford said. "It's next Tuesday. I am trying to get out there sooner than that though. I want to try and find an earlier flight."

The academic information for Stafford from Chaffey to Nebraska will be sent over tomorrow according to Stafford. "I put in the request for my transcript to be sent to Nebraska today. They (Nebraska) were going to request them tomorrow anyway. It will be faxed over."

Getting all of the appropriate classes taken have been a chore, but Stafford thinks that he has done everything that he needs to do so he can play at Nebraska.

"I feel really confident that I have completed all of the work that I need to transfer at Nebraska. I feel good about it."

In the end, Stafford just wants to be a Cornhusker. The extra work is behind him and he wants to get to Lincoln and start working toward the new goal that he has set for himself.

"It feels real good to know that I am going to get on the field soon. I can't wait to meet my team mates, work really hard, start school and win a National Championship."

Like you would expect Stafford will do anything to be a contributor to the team in his first season. He doesn't care where, but he would like to get a shot as a returner.

"I just want to contribute; anyway possible. I just want to help out. I am open to anything. I want to do special teams as a returner. I am a returner."
