Heard thinking about Nebraska visit

Nebraska is taking a couple of last looks around the country for their 2012 class that could finish up like a whirlwind. Could this cornerback from Georgia be a late option? Come inside for the details.

There are a couple of players from around the country that have visited Nebraska or will visit Nebraska late in the process that the Huskers are somewhat interested in. Dontavious Heard from Lithonia (Ga.) King high schools says the first visit will be this weekend.

"I am going to take some trips in January," Heard said. "I am going to Utah State this weekend. I was supposed to go this past weekend, but I had to reschedule. I will be there this 20th."

There have been some late changes to the weekends that Heard will take his trips. Heard hadn't gotten back his test scores so he has had to reshuffle three schools late in the process with just two weeks to go before signing day.

"I was supposed to go to Utah State on the 13th, but I hadn't received my test scores yet. I am going to Memphis on the 27th and I am trying to schedule Nebraska as a mid-week visit."

The defensive backs coach for Nebraska seems to be the one recruiting Heard. Heard said that he would like to take that trip to Nebraska because he thinks that he would be a good fit in Lincoln.

"I think that Corey Raymond is recruiting me from Nebraska. He called me a couple of weeks ago and said that I should take a visit. I want to see if I am a good fit there. I was a school where I can focus on school and football, that's it."

According to Heard there shouldn't be any issues with his test scores. However, he did say that his GPA is a little low right now, but he expects that it will come up before he graduates.

"There isn't an issue with my scores. I took the test December 10th and I just haven't gotten back my scores. My GPA is a little low right now. It's about a 2.1. I will have a higher GPA before I graduate."
