Rios sets Nebraska official visit

It's clear that Nebraska is looking to go defense heavy in the 2012 recruiting class. Nebraska might take another eight or nine commitments and there seems to be an emphasis on getting defensive lineman, linebackers and defensive backs still. The Huskers have targeted one that shows up as a commitment for another team. When will this player be visiting Nebraska?

Eight months ago, literally, Marcus Rios pulled the trigger on a commitment to Boise State. Now the four-star cornerback is taking a look around including an official visit to Nebraska this month.

"I am excited to visit Nebraska," Rios said. "I will be traveling on Thanksgiving Day to get to Nebraska for the game on Friday against Iowa. I can't wait to see everything that is Nebraska."

Rios pushed back the initial visit date from November 5th to the 25th because of the SAT. Rios is busy getting ready for the test right now and is also studying hard to graduate early from Elk Grove (Calif.) Consumnes Oaks.

"Academics are very important to me and my family. I take the SAT on November 5th and I am graduating December 16th so I am studying all of the time."

Rios has been chosen to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American game. Rios said that Nebraska was a team that stayed in touch with him throughout the process and he called them to see about their interest.

Time is of the essence in this situation and with Rios taking the test this weekend and then taking trips a commitment should soon follow. Both Rios and his family are impressed with the importance that Nebraska makes of academics.
