Deverell Biggs is not the only junior college product the Nebraska Cornhuskers are currently eyeing. Coffeyville Community College's Chadrack Lufile, a 6-foot-9 power forward, says he is in the process of setting up an official visit to Lincoln.
"I know Coach Coleman, Coach Miles, and Coach Olsen," said Lufile. "They were recruiting me when they were at Colorado State. I've heard a lot about Nebraska. It's a really good school in a really good conference. I have always dreamed of playing in a big conference like the Big Ten. I want to make a name for myself. My road in junior college has been sort of rough, so I'm looking for a good fit. I hear about Nebraska's facilities and how the school takes care of their players. I hear the fans are also very friendly and show a lot of support. I haven't gone there yet, but I want to definitely take a visit."
The road for Lufile the last few years has been "rough." First he went to Chipola College (FL), about 50 miles west of Tallahassee. After injuring his ankle, he transferred to Vincennes Junior College (IN), but shortly after arriving on campus, the Trailblazers hired Todd Franklin in August of 2010. Franklin brought many of his own players, so Lufile sat out and transferred to Coffeyville.
Last year, he averaged 11.6 points and 8.4 rebounds for the Ravens, as they finished 28-4 on the year.
"I can basically do anything. I can shoot it, I can play inside, I like to rebound a lot, I just bring a lot of energy to the floor. I think I can make an impact with a team with good chemistry. I'm always going to work hard," said Lufile. "I didn't really get a chance to show my coach here what I could do because I transferred in so late, but I really bring a lot to the floor."
With his interesting journey over the last few years, Lufile admits he's ready for the process to be over.
"I want to get to know my future teammates and coaches," said the junior college product. "If I fall love with it (Nebraska), I could commit on the spot. It's all about what God has planned for me. I grew up in a Christian family, my dad is a pastor. I've been just praying and talking with my family about it. My dad has a really good feeling about Nebraska."
