Checks out Nebraska

Spring practices opened up this past weekend for Nebraska and it was a good opportunity for Nebraska to entertain some unofficial visitors. One of those visitors was Jack Keeler from Barrington (Ill.). The 6-foot-7 and 275-pound offensive tackle came away impressed with Nebraska.

Jack Keeler made an eight hour trip this past weekend from Barrington (Ill.) over to Lincoln, Nebr. The offensive lineman was in town to check out Nebraska and see their first spring practice.

"Nebraska was very nice," Keller said. "I got a chance to meet all of the linemen and I got to watch their first spring practice. It was all around a great weekend."

Keeler says the opportunity to get to meet some of the players that he could potentially call his team mates was important. He says that it's important to his college decision to make sure that he fits in well with the linemen at the college he chooses.

"The best part was definitely meeting all of the linemen. I really wanted to get to know the players that I would be playing with the next four to five years. That's important to me.

"The coaches were all great and I got a chance to see all of the facilities at Nebraska. That was impressive. I really liked all of the facilities at Nebraska that I had a chance to see.

"I didn't expect the city to be so busy and so big. Lincoln is very nice. Nothing really could have been better. I was really impressed. I think that I would visit again. I was just impressed with the trip."

Keeler will have about a week and a half before his next trip. He will head to a nearby school and then he will be off on spring break. When he's on spring break he is planning on visiting a school in Florida and then will see a few more schools in April.

"March 24th I go to Indiana and on March 25th I will be at South Florida when I am there for spring break. When I get back in April I will be going to Vanderbilt, Tennessee and maybe Northwestern."
