"Sorry I couldn't talk on Saturday," Cheadle said. "My phone was about to die and I needed rest for my track meet on Sunday. It was an indoor meet so I ran the 60-meter. I also do the triple jump."
This wasn't Cheadle's first trip to Nebraska. He was actually in town last year for an unofficial visit to see one of the best games of the year for Nebraska. He didn't get a great chance to talk with the coaches then, but he got that opportunity on Saturday.
"I have been there before actually. I was there for the Wisconsin game last year. That was a great game to go to. I only got a chance to speak with the coaches a little bit, but I got to see a great game day environment."
The time Cheadle spent with the coaches was split between his position coach and the recruiting coach for his area. He admits that it was good to see Nebraska away from the football field and to get a better feel for what they are all about.
"I had a meeting with my recruiting coach, John Garrison, and my position coach, Terry Joseph, and it was good to see things away from just football. I got a chance to see the campus and to take a look at the academic side of Nebraska."
There were some things about Nebraska that Cheadle didn't really know coming into junior day. Like how many academic All-Americans Nebraska has had. Cheadle also got a good chance to look around the locker room and at some of their equipment.
"One of the things that really stood out to me about my visit was the academics. I didn't know that Nebraska led the NCAA in academic All-Americans. I also liked the locker room and all of their equipment."
Nebraska is just the first junior day for Cheadle. He has at least two more planned as of right now. If he has his way though he will be back to see Nebraska at least two more times over the coming months.
"I am going to go and see Kansas on February 16th and Missouri on March 2nd. I might go and see South Dakota State too, but I am not sure. Nebraska wants me to come back for their spring game and summer camp so I will probably do that."
