Return trip

Nebraska commitment Dan Samuelson's second trip to Lincoln was about meeting his future teammates.

Nearly a month after he committed, Plymouth (Ind.) offensive lineman Dan Samuelson was back in Lincoln on Friday and Saturday, this time with a new agenda for his short visit.

"I was looking forward to getting to know the guys who had already committed more than anything," Samuelson told Big Red Report on his way back to Indiana Saturday night. "I was there quite a few hours last time, so I got to see pretty much everything on my tour.

"Getting to talk with guys like Josh Banderas, meeting all the coaches, and getting to meet some of the players was the best part about my weekend."

The Huskers only current offensive lineman commitment in the 2013 class, Samuelson was given a task for Saturday.

"I was there actually pretty early, we got there about 11:00 a.m., and we talked with Coach Cotton and Coach Garrison for quite a well," said the three-star prospect. "We went over who they wanted me to talk with and who they wanted me to recruit. But they spent just as much time with me on what I was up to as the uncommitted guys.

"I really talked with Zach Hannon a bit...It seemed like he had a really good time."

Before the festivities took place on Saturday, Samuelson spent Friday night, along with the other committed players in attendance, at linebacker Josh Banderas' house in Lincoln.

"We were hanging out last night and we were talking about how we are pretty excited with the way the class is going," said the soon to be senior. "Then we went outside and had a dunk contest. We were all a little surprised and excited to see how athletic we are.

"It was a six-way tie before you ask."

With picking a school no longer on his mind, Samuelson reports a definite change for the better in his life the last few weeks.

"It's amazing how much it feels better to not have to worry about that. There is no pressure. It feels like I made 100 percent the right choice."
