Weekend north a success

Dallas Skyline (TX) 2104 cornerback Cedric Collins says he loved his time in Lincoln for Big Red Weekend.

Not even two weeks after picking up an offer from Nebraska, Dallas Skyline (TX) 2104 cornerback Cedric Collins was in Lincoln for the Huskers' Big Red Weekend.

"The people around are so friendly and really cool. The coaches and the players make you feel like you really at home. It was great," said Collins. "I loved it. The facilities are probably the best around. The campus is great because the people are so friendly. I'm a big fan of it."

Collins, who also holds offers from Baylor, Kansas State, Oklahoma, SMU, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and West Virginia, talked with three different coaches about his game.

"I talked with the defensive coordinator, Coach JP for a really long time. He was just talking bout the depth chart and how I would fit in with the program. I then did the same Coach Joseph and Coach Pelini about some of the same things," said Collins. "When you look at their system, I think I probably fit in better with them or Texas A&M the best...They like to blitz their defensive backs, I like that. Coach Pelini says I would be a great fit for his defense."

Collins admits he has always been a fan of the Nebraska "Blackshirts" and plans to visit again this fall for one of the Huskers Big Ten contests.

"They were telling me that I had to come up for a game because of the fan atmosphere. I guess it gets pretty crazy there," said Collins.

The 2014 defensive back is just one of two known offers to Skyline players at the moment. Nebraska also offered 2013 four-star quarterback Devante Kincade. Kincade was planning to hit Lincoln this weekend, but told Fox Sports' Erin Hartigan he could not make it because his mother was in the hospital.

"I'm definitely going to tell my teammates about Nebraska," said Collins. "It was great."
