"It was a "10", by far."

Nebraska put together a good effort on the field on Friday and that helped lend with impressing the recruits that were in town this weekend. Nate Iese, a standout tight end/defensive end, was caught off guard by the complete package that Nebraska offers from athletics to academics. He said that nothing could have been better about the trip.

Nate Iese was impressed this weekend by Nebraska. The Huskers hosted the two-way standout from Sacrament (Calif.) Sheldon for the Iowa game yesterday and over Thanksgiving as well.

"It was great,' Iese said. "I liked everything at Nebraska. It shocked me how well I liked everything because I thought I would just be seeing a football game and be impressed by that.

"They have great academics and great academic support at Nebraska for their athletes, football comes second. That is stressed to their players."

Iese was definitely impressed by the game as well. The touchdown pass to the tight end was something that stood out and playing tight end at Nebraska is definitely a possibility with Iese.

"It was a great game. The touchdown pass to the tight end was great to see. Nebraska told me again that they like me as an athlete so either as a tight end or a defensive end.

"If I were to go to Nebraska I would base which position I would play on the need of the team. It sounds like they have a bigger need at tight end right now though."

Playing defense is also a possibility for Iese as well and from the game and the team meetings he was able to attend he liked what he saw on the defensive side of the ball as well.

"I think that the scheme on defense is a great fit for me. It's what I like to do. I like to get off the ball quick and get after the quarterback coming across from the tackle on the edge. I also like to stop the run."

The visit was given a perfect score by Iese who also said that he couldn't think of anything that he would change about the trip. He came in concerned about the weather, but said he felt like he could adapt to what he saw.

"It was a "10", by far. I can't think of anything that could have been better about the trip. The weather was good for the game too. It was a little cold this morning because of the wind."

Iese has one more trip set and another planned. Iese isn't planning on doing anything on a commitment until he takes the other two trips. "I go to UCLA on January 13th and I will take one more trip after that, but I am undecided on where to take that last trip."
