Raridon still impressed with Nebraska

Iowa defensive line prospect Sam Raridon was in Lincoln today for Nebraska junior day. What did he think? Come inside for the latest.

Josh Banderas and Mike Minter Jr. were not the only legacy recruits in Lincoln today for Nebraska junior day.

Defensive lineman Sam Raridon, the son of former offensive tackle Scott Raridon, was in attendance looking for an offer.

"I've been there before for a visit and saw all their facilities and everything, but coming back I was still impressed with everything they have to offer," said the Valley high school (Des Moines, IA) prospect. "Coach Kaczenski actually couldn't make it. He had something going on with his family, but I did get pulled aside by one of the coaches...I'm planning on going to their camp this summer so they can see more."

The 6-foot-2, 260 pound defensive tackle has an offer from Iowa, while getting interest from other schools like Oklahoma, Purdue, and Wisconsin. While many would assume Raridon would want to follow in his father's footsteps if offered, many are projecting Iowa is his leader.

So what overall will Raridon take away from Lincoln today?

"It's definitely a great school for both football and academics," said the junior. "The graduation rate was one of the highest in the country – it's just ridiculous how good it is.

"I don't have any other junior day plans right now. I already went to Iowa's earlier in the year."

While he didn't pick up an offer today, the 2013 prospect is definitely in contention for one down the road.
