Busy week for Valentine

Vincent Valentine will host two teams this week and visit a third this weekend. Nebraska was there to see him yesterday. Who visited with Valentine from Nebraska?

Vincent Valentine from Edwardsville (Ill.) is having a busy week already and it's not even half-way done. Valentine hosted coaches last night, he will host another school later in the week and he will take an official visit this weekend.

"I had Nebraska last night," Valentine said. "Thursday I have Florida coming in and I am going to see Illinois this weekend. I have been there plenty of times before, but I want to get to know the coaches better and spend time with the team."

Nebraska sent the big guns to see Valentine last night. It was the head coach and the defensive coordinator in to see Valentine. Valentine used the term "nitty gritty" on his twitter when it came to his discussions with Nebraska last night.

"Coach Bo Pelini and Coach Papuchis were here last night from Nebraska. We talked about everything last night. I said we got into the nitty gritty. We talked about everything.

"We talked about what I would get out of coming to Nebraska, all of the things that would happen, when I would be able to get home and how they see me in their defense."

The Nebraska staff told Valentine that they like him as a three technique and playing in a two-gap scheme. Valentine was comfortable with that because he's played all of the positions along the defensive line.

"Nebraska likes me out at the three, but I think that I could play any of them. They like me to play two-gap and I think that I would be comfortable doing that."

This weekend it's Illinois and that appears to be the last visit that Valentine will take. He said that he will take some time after that trip, think about things and then make a decision.

"I think that I am done after this weekend when it comes to visits. I need to sit around, think about things and then figure out where I want to be at."
