Seisay: "You just can't describe it"

If there was a reason to be optimistic about some of the defensive recruits in Lincoln this weekend it might be because of some holes that need some help. There is obviously some work that needs to be done back there and the Huskers are going to have to replace Alfonzo Dennard next year as well. That is where Mohammed Seisay could come in.

Mohammed Seisay is still finding his way back home to Thatcher (Ariz.) Eastern Arizona C.C. He's getting ready to board his last connecting flight shortly.

"I am about to get on a flight to Tucson," Seisay said. "I have one more flight from Phoenix and that is it. The last flight isn't a very long one at all."

Seisay got up to Nebraska early in the afternoon on Friday and had a chance to check out practice among other things. He was also able to do the other team related activities that night as well as talk to the football and academic staff at Nebraska.

"I got up there Friday around 2:30 or so. I went to their walk-through, their team dinner, the team movie and had a chance to talk to the coaches and the academic folks as well."

Seisay has seen Division I football venues before having played at Memphis. However, there was something definitely special to him about his experience in Lincoln this weekend.

"The game day on Saturday was great. You just can't describe it. They tunnel walk when the players come out of the locker room, the red carpet out of the locker room and the thousands of fans going crazy was great."

The loss to Northwestern was tough, but if there was one thing that was clear was the need for help on defense. Seisay said a guy like him could fit in well in the secondary.

"I can see myself fitting in with the scheme. It was a great game all in all, but they are definitely looking for some play makers back there. I feel like I could fit in well.

"I could get up there in January or to any other school I want to go to, line up and play early. I can do man or zone, doesn't matter. They need someone with play making ability."

On Sunday morning there was a chance for Seisay to meet with the defensive back coach. After that he was able to get some one on one time with the head coach to talk about the visit.

"I had a meeting with Coach Corey Raymond on Sunday where we went over some of the things that they are doing defensively. He wanted to talk to me about basic things on defense.

"After that I got a chance to go and talk to Head Coach Bo Pelini. He basically wanted to make sure that I didn't have any questions and wanted to see how the visit went. I told him that I would be committing in December and that I was really liking Nebraska."

The visit literally could not have been any better for Seisay who gave Nebraska a perfect score. He said that everyone in Lincoln was great and that the trip was well put together.

"It was a "10". It was that great. The entire staff was friendly and I had a chance to talk to them about football and academics. Everything was well organized. I got a chance to meet everyone."

Seisay is definitely expecting to take three more trips after Nebraska and maybe a fourth depending on time. He knows where he's going next weekend, but beyond that he wasn't sure.

"I go to Illinois next weekend. I am not sure where my other visits will be to yet. I might take just two or I might take the last three. I am not sure."
