Top three for Leggett

Nebraska's recruiting class might double in the next month or so and one of the names that could be part of it is cornerback A.J. Leggett from Miami (Flor.) South. Can the Huskers get Leggett to visit in January?

A.J. Leggett is going to have a pretty busy month of January. It wouldn't have been so bad had he been able to make the original official visit date in December to Nebraska.

"I had to reschedule," Leggett said. "I don't have a date set up yet to go yet. I have to talk to Coach Raymond again about it."

While Leggett waits to reschedule Nebraska he is set up to go to Florida State in two weeks. That would mean that Nebraska would likely get one of those two following weekends.

"I have a visit set up to Florida State. I am going there the 13th. That would make Nebraska either having to be the 20th or the 27th; one of those two weekends."

Considering those upcoming plans it seems Nebraska and Florida State will make his list of favorites. Leggett has already taken an official visit to see another school and they would be the third team on his list.

"My top three are Marshall, Florida State and Nebraska. I have already been to see Marshall. It was a good visit. I learned a lot on the visit that I didn't know.

"Marshall isn't like Nebraska, but there are some reasons to really consider about Marshall. I would play early there and their coach has put some players in the NFL."

If you watch Leggett's film he might be a player that you just add to play in the secondary somewhere. He hasn't heard that from college teams though. He's being recruited to play exclusively at cornerback in some fashion.

"Everyone likes me as a cornerback. I haven't heard anyone say that they like me as a safety. Teams are telling me that they like me as a dime, nickel or corner."
