Checks out Lincoln

This was a big weekend for Nebraska and the number of official and unofficial visitors that they were hosting. There were also a number of high profile 2014 recruits in the stands tonight including this DL/OL prospect from Hartland (Wisc.) Arrowhead.

The visitors that were in Lincoln tonight for the Nebraska game against Wisconsin witnessed the second largest comeback in Nebraska history. One of the junior unofficial visitors that was in attendance was Billy Hirschfeld from Hartland (Wisc.) Arrowhead.

"Yes I am in Lincoln," Hirschfeld said. "What an amazing game. Wisconsin played tough for two halves, but Nebraska just wanted it more."

Hirschfeld was able to do mostly everything that the offiical visitors got a chance to do today including being around the team before the start of the game and walking through the tunnel before the team does. Hirschfeld said that he was giving out a lot of high fives.

"I was able to hear the pep talks for both the offensive and defensive players before the game in the locker room. I had a chance to walk out with the other recruits, like A.J. Natter, and I was high fiving a lot of fans that were out there.

"After that all of the recruits made their way to the sideline and watched as the team came out for the tunnel walk. It was amazing. The whole stadium was going nuts."

Hirschfeld plays defense for Arrowhead, but is being looked at by a lot of schools to play offense. His heart is on defense and he has an open mind to playing offense potentially especially hearing from people that he trusts that he might be a better offensive player at the next level.

"I think that Nebraska likes me the most as an offensive tackle. I was talking to Coach Barney Cotton and Coach John Garrison a lot today. I am really only playing defense this year for my team, but I am working out on offense during practice to get ready for next year.

"I would like to play defensive line in college, either tackle or end. I have been getting a lot of advice though from coaches and my trainers that I might be a better offensive recruit. They say that coaches like my size and my athleticism on the offensive side of the ball."

Hirschfeld has seen some other schools already and says that his experience tonight at Nebraska is one of the best trips he's ever been on. Hirschfeld has been to see Northern Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin in the past.

"All of the people were great towards me, thanking me for showing up on the visit, and I really felt welcome here. Their fans are great because they were all wanting to high five me and they don't know me at all."
