Westerkamp reflects on first NU game day

Nebraska commitment and 4-star receiver Jordan Westerkamp hadn't visited Lincoln on game day. His first trip - it could be called a success.

Nebraska commitment Jordan Westerkamp just can't get enough. After his first game day visit to Memorial Stadium this Saturday, the senior wants to come back every week, but his schedule doesn't allow it.

"I thought the spring game was nuts. This was just awesome. It was completely different," said Westerkamp to Big Red Report. "It blew me off my feet again and it was so much fun. Those fans are one of a kind. It's probably the best game day in college football.

"I'm trying to make it to as many games as I can, but it's hard with my schedule. We had a Friday night game, so we decided we would come up and watch it. They loved it."

While on his visit, Westerkamp was playing that of recruiter.

"I tried to talk to Jordan (Diggs) and Evan (Goodman) as much as possible. I know Nebraska definitely wants them and they would be huge gets for our class," said Westerkamp. "I told them that I have been on 20 trips and everywhere, but this one blew me off my feet.

"I didn't get to talk to Goodman very much, because he was on his official visit, but I talked to Jordan and I know he loved it. It would be a huge get for us."

Nebraska fan support is almost always something recruits comment on when taking a visit and Westerkamp noticed it when walking out onto the field.

"It was crazy. Coming through the tunnel, people were screaming Westerkamp or Jordan. It was crazy that people get that into it. I had a good time," said the Illinois product. "Diggs was saying that he had never been to a place that intense and I'm going to be in contact with him as much as I can to remind him of it. I think from my point of view, he had a good time."

Much has been made this week about Nebraska's offensive showing against Fresno State, struggling at times to move the ball. Westerkamp noticed, but was happy to see the progress made even in game two.

"A win's a win. The second half showed me a lot," said the 4-star receiver. "I talked to Coach Fisher again and he said that I'm the first true receiver they have recruited for this offense. I can make moves on the line and run crisp patterns, which is important in this offense. I'm just looking to come in and make an impact if I can."
