Hunter enjoys Lincoln

Typically unofficial visits to Lincoln are jam packed for football recruits. For Torii Hunter, Jr. it was more than that. Hunter was in Lincoln for just a day and had to check out both the football and the baseball programs. While he didn't get to see some things as much as he would have liked he came away from the visit very impressed.

Torii Hunter. has been making the rounds lately. The three-star rated recruit is ranked the No. 50 overall wide receiver by Hunter spent the day in Nebraska today and is already on the road again.

"I already left," Hunter said. "I'm actually in Arizona right now. I was only in Lincoln for the day today.

"The visit went really well. It was a thorough visit, but I didn't get to see much of the campus. We spent most of our time in the Tom Osborne facility."

Hunter, a dual-sport recruit, was in Lincoln to check out both the football and baseball programs. Hunter said that he came away impressed with some things that he didn't know about the football team and got a chance to meet someone he followed growing up who now heads up the baseball program at Nebraska.

"I visited with both the football and baseball programs today. I always knew that Nebraska had a tradition and had a great team, but I didn't know about the academic success they have had.

"The academic side for Nebraska is definitely a plus. Their academic facilities were amazing. Nebraska really gives their student-athletes all of the tools to be successful.

"I met with the Nebraska staff and I grew up watching Darin Erstad as a player. He really has the program at Nebraska headed in the right direction. Their indoor and outdoor facilities at Nebraska are amazing."

Hunter couldn't think of anything that he would have changed about the visit today and gave the trip a very high mark. Hunter is talking about a return visit to Lincoln this fall as an official visitor.

"I would give it either an "8" or a "9". It was just an all-around great visit. I am really hoping to get back up to Lincoln for an official visit this fall."
