"The summer is going good, it's hot though," Russell said. "Workouts are going good; just getting ready for the fall. We have a lot of returning players so we should have a good season."
There is a long list of offers for Russell and he says that it continues to grow. He could only name about 10 of the offers, but says that his coach has the complete list of schools that has thrown down an offer.
The Nebraska offer is new, but Russell has received one before. Russell was as highly of touted player out of high school initially and he actually visited Nebraska as a senior for their spring game two years ago.
"Nebraska offered me in high school, but they called me last week and offered me again. I went to their spring game when I was a senior.
"Their spring game blew my mind. They had a sellout crowd for a spring game and most of the people knew who I was everywhere I went.
"The atmosphere up there was just lovely. I got to walk out on the field before the game on the red carpet. I really liked it up there."
The question will be now for Nebraska if they can get Russell for a return visit? "I am thinking about taking an official visit to Nebraska this fall. It's going to depend on our season schedule turns out and if it lines up."
