Russell receives Nebraska offer

The name Quincy Russell should sound familiar to Nebraska fans. Before he committed to Texas two years ago he was actually up for the spring game in Lincoln as an unofficial visitor. So when Nebraska reached back out to him again a week ago he already knew a lot about Lincoln and Nebraska. Could he return this fall for another visit?

One of the top junior college players in the nation is Palestine (Texas) Trinity Valley C.C. defensive tackle Quincy Russell. Russell is preparing for his sophomore year at Trinity Valley and he says that they return a lot of experienced players.

"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.

"I know of 10 offers, but my coach knows about others. I have offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech and Nebraska."

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."
