Russell down to two

This is a big week for Nebraska and pending decisions of some key recruits. One of those key recruits is Palestine (Texas) Trinity Valley C.C. defensive tackle Quincy Russell. Russell says that he is down to two.

Palestine (Texas) Trinity Valley C.C. defensive tackle Quincy Russell is coming up on his signing day, but nothing is really planned in terms of a press conference or anything. Russell says that he's been busy with school and recruiting recently and hasn't set anything up to do anything publicly.

"I don't really have anything like that planned," Russell said. "Everyone has been trying to get a hold of me lately and I have been really busy with school and recruiting."

Russell has been busy with recruiting and says that he's really down to two schools. One team, that was on his list until recently, just changed head coaches and because of his tighter timeline being a junior college transfer he has a hard time considering them now.

"I am down to Oklahoma and Nebraska," Russell said. "Well, there is Texas Tech too, but they just had a head coach change."

Russell took some time to give his thoughts on both of his top teams.

Oklahoma:
"They win and they have a great program. They coaches there have been there for a long time. They compete for conference championships, BCS bowl games and national championships every year."

Nebraska:
"Nebraska is really coming up under Coach Bo Pelini. They have a great fan base and game day environment. Coach Rich Kaczenski is young and knows what it takes to get players to the next level."

While Russell is sitting on a top two you might think that he's ready to make a decision and sign with a school this week. You might think that, but the curve ball here is that Russell isn't 100% sure that he will be signing with any school this week.

"I am not even sure if I will even sign this week. I haven't even talked to my mom at all about the process."
