Hirschfeld returning to Lincoln

Nebraska scored a big recruiting battle win by pulling A.J. Natter out of Milton (Wisc.) last year. Nebraska has their eyes on another from the state of Wisconsin this year and he will be making a return visit to Lincoln this weekend.

Billy Hirschfeld from Hartland (Wisc.) Arrowhead is one of the most sought after players in the state of Wisconsin. The 6-foot-5 and 268-pound defensive end is holding a Nebraska offer and plans on visiting Nebraska this weekend for their spring game.

"I will be in Lincoln this weekend for their spring game," Hirschfield said. "I have been there one time before. I was there last season for the Wisconsin game. That was a great game."

Hirschfield has seen a lot of what Nebraska has to offer already, but he says that there are some things that he wants to get a better look at. He most definitely wants to see more of the campus and the layout of the various buildings.

"I just want to see the campus, the building and how close they are all together. I want to just get a better idea of how things are laid out and how close the campus is to all of the places I would need to go."

Hirschfield says that he has regular contact with multiple players from the Nebraska staff. He says that Saturday will be a unique opportunity for him to see the scheme, check out the position that they like him at and see how they coach in a game setting.

"The Nebraska staff definitely wants me there. Coach Barney Cotton, John Garrison and Tim Beck are all regularly contacting me. I will be looking at their scheme, how they use my position, whey they do there and just how the coaches handle their players in games."

As a junior, Hirschfeld helped Arrowhead win a state title and go undefeated. He recorded 64 tackles (17 for loss), a sack and three forced fumbles.
