"I have set up a visit to see Nebraska," Cross said. "I am going up on January 20th. I am looking forward meeting the coaches and meeting the players. I also want to meet the academic people and really answer the questions about why I would go there."
The Nebraska staff has been up front with Cross about how they see him fitting in up in Lincoln. They like the physical presence that he brings to the field and it's something that the Huskers are lacking in a lot of ways on the current team. Cross is interested in finding out more about that on his trip.
"Coach Ron Brown has been recruiting me from Nebraska. He's a great man and has great values. I like him a lot. We have talked about how he sees me fitting in the Nebraska offense in some ways. He says that there are definitely some things that I can do for them up there in the offense. We haven't gotten into deep detail about it."
Cross will visit two schools in the next two weeks and there is a third school that he wants to visit, but it might not be the last weekend in January for him. He said that he is considering setting that one up as a mid-week trip.
"I go to ECU on January 13th, Nebraska the following weekend and I am going to visit Virginia, but I am not sure when. It might be the 27th. I would consider taking a mid-week visit there."
