Leggett wants to visit Nebraska

Nebraska is turning up the heat around the nation looking for a cornerback or two to join the 2011-2012 recruiting class. The Huskers are looking in California and they are also looking in Florida. This cornerback has been considered a commitment for months now to a school and now it seems he might look around. The Huskers should get a visit.

High School playoffs are in full swing and Miami (Flor.) South have a game this Thursday. A.J. Leggett, a cornerback, doesn't have the stats that indicate that he's had a great season, but he's doing his part because teams don't challenge him at all.

"We're doing good," Leggett said. "We are in the playoffs. We have a playoff game this Thursday. I knew that my senior year that I wouldn't get thrown at a lot. I only have one pick on the season.

"I just don't get thrown at a lot. We do a lot of different things too so I get a chance to work in man to man and also go into a little cover two and I will work in some zone."

Leggett has been a Miami commitment on and off now for about a year and solid for the last nine months. Now Leggett is talking about taking some trips and one school he wants to see will be Nebraska.

"I have been committed to Miami for a while now, but I am going to take some more visits. I am going to take a trip to Nebraska. I don't have that visit set up yet. I will talk to him about it next time I talk to him."

The Huskers are a team that has just emerged for Leggett who says that the type of defense and how the defense has played this year really caught his eye. He likes what Nebraska is all about.

"I haven't been there before and I am very interested in seeing what they are all about. I see they play tough football. Nebraska wasn't really a top school for me, but they have stood out to me this year."

Besides Nebraska, Leggett is also looking at taking trips to a few other schools as well. Like Nebraska those other trips are just being thrown around and he doesn't have anything set up yet.

"I would say that I would take another trip to Florida State and probably LSU. I would like to see Ohio State too. I don't have those visits set up yet either."
