Huskers up there for Wolf

One of the nation's best tight ends got to Nebraska late on Friday night and got to see what Nebraska had to offer over the weekend. What were the thoughts of this top tight end about his visit to Lincoln?

Ethan Wolf from Minster (Ohio) is sitting in the Lincoln airport trying to get home and is getting chance to really review what he saw this weekend. He and his family actually got to Nebraska on Friday, but didn't see anything on campus until Saturday.

"We got there on Friday night but it was late," Wolf said. "We actually got on campus on Saturday. We spoke with the strength and conditioning coaches, nutritionist and the head trainer. We found out all they do and how they are staying ahead with technology."

The 6-foot-6 and 221-pound tight end then got a chance to see the Nebraska team in action for their practice on Saturday. He really got a chance to see the tight end position coach working closely with his players.

"I got a chance to see one of their spring practices on Saturday. Coach Barney Cotton does a great job. He really knows what he is talking about. He played for Coach Tom Osborne and coached for him too. He's had three sons play for Nebraska. Two are still there.

"I got a chance to see the tight ends do their thing. I caught some things from practice that I am going to use this season when it comes to blocking. I also got a chance to sit on on some players' meetings and watch film with the coaches reviewing the practice. We talked about the different formations that they run and how the use the tight end."

That ended the day on Saturday, but there was a chance to see a lot more on Sunday. Wolf and his family got a chance to meet some of the other groups that are closely associated with the team.

"On Sunday I got a chance to meet with the Life Skills director and the head academic adviser. I also got a chance to just hang out in the players lounge for a while and went to brunch with the coaches."

Wolf was impressed by what he saw in Lincoln. It was a full weekend and he said that everything that he wanted to see he saw and it went beyond that. Wolf said that he saw more than he thought he did and gave the visit a perfect rating.

"It was a good visit. I got more out of the visit than I expected to see. I didn't think that we would have a chance to watch film or see the dorms. I'd say that the visit was a "10". Coach Cotton had a great plan for us this weekend to keep us busy and make sure we saw everything we did."

The visit helped Nebraska on Wolf's list, but that's a serious list with a lot of very good programs on it. Wolf is going to make some more trips before baseball gets serious and he would like to make a decision before his senior season begins.

"Nebraska is definitely up there for me. I have a lot of offers from a lot of great schools though. I want to visit more schools before baseball really starts so I can evaluate the schools like they are evaluating me. I would like to make a decision by the time two-a-days start."
