Gifford enjoys spring game

The 2014 recruiting class for Nebraska only has one member, but it won't be that way for long if Luke Gifford has anything to say about it. The standout safety from Lincoln (Nebr.) Southeast was in attendance for the Nebraska spring game talking with the other recruits.

Nebraska's only commitment in the 2014 class at this time is Lincoln (Nebr.) Southeast safety Luke Gifford. Gifford is a player that could play offense or defense at Nebraska and he was just getting home from going to the Red-White spring game.

"I just got home," Gifford said. "I stuck around the the team BBQ after getting there this afternoon around 1:00 or so. I got to hang out on the field and then watched the game with the other recruits."

Gifford came away impressed. He thought that there were a couple of the younger players on offense that really stood out. He spoke with the staff after the game and he heard about a tough spring that yielded a number of injuries.

"I thought that it was a good performance. I thought that Tommy Armstrong ran the option well and has a strong arm. He had a great touchdown throw to Alonzo Moore.

"I spoke with the staff about the game and they said that there were a lot of injuries this spring and that they are really banged up. Because of the injuries they didn't have a lot of depth and some players basically played the whole game."

There was a good number of recruits in the stands, either those with offers or without from this year and members of last year's class, and Gifford was talking with a lot of them. He mentioned having good conversations with a few of the recruits from his class.

"Some of the 2013 class was there so I talked to them. I also got a chance to talk to some of the recruits in my class. I spoke with Dominique Fenstermacher. He's a pretty cool guy and I think that he really liked it.

"Monte Harrison was there, but I didn't get a chance to see him. He was on the tour after the game I think. I also spoke with a pair of 2015 recruits from Colorado. They really liked it.

"I also got a chance to speak with Billy Hirschfeld. He was spending a lot of time talking to A.J. Natter. They were hanging out quite a bit together."
