Huskers offer Lamin

Ndamukong Suh was one of the most dominant defensive players to ever play collegiate football. This junior college prospect says that he is a huge fan of Suh and that getting an offer from Nebraska was a blessing.

Fort Scott (Kans.) C.C. defensive tackle Abu Lamin is thinking positively about the upcoming season. The 6-foot-5 and 315-pound defensive tackle thinks that his team is going to surprise some people.

"The spring has been great," Lamin said. "I think that our team based on the work that we have been putting in is really going to shock some people."

Lamin says that this spring has been all about trying to get better. Fort Scott would have early morning workouts where Lamin can still hear his mental voice motivating himself to push harder.

"I wanted to just push myself to another level. We have 6:00 workouts every morning to I am in there grinding, literally talking to myself saying 'we have to get better'."

The spring evaluation period has been a pleasant surprise for Lamin. He had no idea it would be like today. Lamin landed three new offers and a number of other teams are trying to line up visits.

"The attention is very surprising. I didn't see all of this attention this year. The new offers are from Arizona State, Nebraska and South Carolina all offered me today.

"I also talked to Florida and they are trying to get me visit as well as Washington. Texas Tech, Southern Miss, Ball State and Arkansas have all offered as well."

Lamin says that he's looking for the right situation when he makes his decision. He doesn't mind competition, but he knows that his time table is tight coming from junior college and doesn't want to have to compete against insane numbers.

"I am looking for a place where I have a realistic chance of getting on that field. I have no problem competing, it's fun, I don't need 10 D-Tackles all going for one spot. I am just being realistic."

Lamin says that he has great quickness and speed for a man his size. He can get off of the ball quickly and is impossible to block. On top of that Lamin gives credit to long arms and improving on his hands to be even tougher this fall.

"My strength is probably my quickness for my size. You don't typically see guys with my size with the type of speed that I have. I have very long arms and I have been working on my hands and working on new pass rush moves."

Nebraska was one of the three schools to throw down an offer today. The interest from Nebraska is pretty new, but Lamin sees the quick turnaround that the Huskers have made from looking at his film to extending him an offer.

"Coach John Garrison from Nebraska was here today," Lamin said. "I just started talking with Nebraska two or three days ago. Coach Garrison saw my film, he showed the head coach my film and they had to come out and offer immediately.

"It's a blessing to get an offer from Nebraska. I am a big time Ndamukong Suh fan. He is one of the greatest college, defensive tackles in the game. That automatically catches my eye.

"I have never been up to Nebraska and I want to go up and visit there soon. Coach Garrison was telling me that things are amazing there. I have seen them on T.V. and I know about the atmosphere. I plan on visiting for Big Red Weekend on June 15th."
