Beaver will visit Nebraska

This is going to be a small recruiting class for Nebraska this season, but there will be a definite tone to it: DEFENSE. More than half of the class will likely be defensive players and there are already three talented players on board who might be future Blackshirts. Brandon Beaver is interested in Nebraska and will travel to Lincoln in early September.

Hell week is behind Brandon Beaver and Compton (Calif.) Dominguez. There is this week of practice before taking the field for a scrimmage. Beaver's assessment of this year's team is that it's more talented than last year, but something has to happen still.

""We just got done with hell week," Beaver said. "We have practice this week and this Friday we have a scrimmage. I think that we should be pretty good this year.

"We went to the semi-finals last year. I think that we are more talented as a whole than last year's team, but we have to come together. We should be good though."

Official visits have become a hot topic with recruits and Beaver says that it's something that he is currently looking at. There are two schools that he's going to set official visits with already. One should get set up later this week.

"I am working on it right now. I am setting up Nebraska and Washington. I am going to go to Nebraska when they play against Fresno State."

When Beaver gets into the stadium in Lincoln on September 10th there are some things that he is going to be looking at. In particular though he wants to see what a game is like at Nebraska.

"I want to see what the atmosphere is like on a game day weekend and also see what it's like out there. I will set up the trip later this week."

Beaver said that he is talking to as many as three coaches from Nebraska on a regular basis. He is taking to a recruiting coach, position coach and the defensive coordinator. He said that he's looking forward to talking with the head coach soon.

"Carl Pelini, Corey Raymond and Rich Fisher have been the coaches I have been in contact with. Coach Fisher is my recruiting coach, Coach Raymond is the position coach and Coach Pelini is the defensive coordinator. I haven't spoken with Bo Pelini yet, but I want to."
