McWilson checks out Lincoln

It was a big weekend for visitors. The Nebraska staff were hosting a number of committed and uncommitted prospects. One of the commitments in attendance was Youngstown (Ohio) Cardinal Mooney safety Marcus McWilson. The Nebraska secondary was tested on Saturday night and he thinks that the defense is a good fit for him.

Marcus McWilson was in the stands last night to witness the second biggest comeback in Nebraska football history. McWilson was excited to see his first game in Memorial Stadium after a rainout this spring.

"This was my second trip to Nebraska," McWilson said. "The spring game was my first and that game was canceled because of the weather. I have never had a chance to actually see the fans in the stadium and experience a game.

"The atmosphere for the game last night was just crazy. It was really, really loud. I was sitting right next to my mom and she was talking to me. I just had to nod at her because I couldn't hear a word that she said."

The Nebraska defense was tested last night by the Wisconsin offense. The Huskers showed that they are susceptible to the long ball still and have some things to get better at on defense. Still, McWilson thinks that he's a good fit for the Nebraska defense.

"I really feel like I fit in there. I like the coaches and the players. I know that I can get better because of the coaches that are there and I think that I am a good fit for the style of defense they want to run. It's really about if the ball is up that you just have to go and get it."

McWilson has already been in Columbus, Ohio this season to see Ohio State play Cal because he has family ties on the Cal staff. Courtney Love and his family are talking about heading to Columbus next weekend and McWilson might too.

"I am not sure yet on that one. I am going to try to. I will probably know more about that this week."
