Anderson attends Nebraska spring game

There were a number of recruits in the stands that were part of the 2014 class this past weekend in Lincoln for the Nebraska spring game. However, there were some talented 2015 juniors in the stands as well. What did this '15 cornerback think about Nebraska?

Avery Anderson from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek, a 6-foot-0 and 164-pound junior cornerback, was on an unofficial visit this weekend with friend Eric Lee from Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian. This was Anderson's first trip to Lincoln.

"We got the stadium early on Saturday morning," Anderson said. "This was my first trip to Nebraska. When you just look at the stadium, or you hear about it from other people, and it's just huge.

"We walked through on a tour and saw the trophy cases. The academic center, I think that it's called the learning center, and it it just seems like it would really help you out. The weight room is amazing. Ndamukong Suh gave some money to add to it. There was some amazing technology in there."

There were over 60,000 fans in attendance for Nebraska's spring game. Anderson said that on the field you couldn't tell that it was just a spring game. It had a regular game atmosphere.

"All of those fans were there just for the spring game. It really felt like a real game. When we were walking out of the tunnel they were yelling "Go Big Red!" and it was loud.

"The stadium, just looking around and seeing all the fans, once the Huskers scored their first touchdown they let go of their balloons. I thought that was a really cool tradition."

Anderson noted the size and the physical style of Nebraska's cornerbacks. Anderson has good size himself and that lends to his thought that he would be a good fit to possibly play at Nebraska.

"I think that I could be a good fit in Lincoln," Anderson said. "When you look at their roster all of their corners are 6-foot-0 and taller. I think that physical, Blackshirt defense is something that I can play. Locking up man to man or zone, but knocking people around and being physical."

Nebraska fans won't have to wait long to hear about Anderson again despite only being a junior. Both Anderson and Lee have plans to get back to Lincoln later this summer at least once for camp. Anderson wouldn't mind another little more personal trip around the school too.

"Eric Lee and myself are actually going to go to camp together at Nebraska. We are going to drive there later this summer. I would also like to go there on another individual visit and spend some more time. I would like to have some more time with the coaches."

Nebraska will be busy here in a week or so fanning out all over the nation looking at recruits during the evaluation period. Nebraska told Anderson to expect them later this month. "Nebraska told me that they would be coming to my school later this month to come by and see me."
