Huskers to host Andre in June

Inglewood (Calif.) wide receiver Zaire Andre has seen a few schools already this spring. He's planning on making a little longer trip in the middle of June Nebraska.

Zaire Andre from Inglewood (Calif.) is a 6-foot-0 and 170-pound wide receiver. His team is having a huge makeover this spring with a large number of transfers, including a quarterback, as well as a new coaching staff.

"The spring is going good," Andre said. "Our team is coming together well. We have a lot of new transfers coming in including a new quarterback to go with a brand new coaching staff. We are all getting on the same page."

In the off-season Andre was focused on getting stronger so he can play a more physical game on the field. He says that he was limited in his opportunities to make plays last year and he hopes that changes.

"I wanted to improve my strength, I needed to get more physical, and really leave it on the field. Last year I didn't get a chance to show a lot because of the quarterback position. I am hoping that changes this year."

As a receiver Andre believes that he creates separation because of his route running abilities and says that he has good hands. He says that he is a threat to get yards after the catch.

"I am a good route runner with good hands and I have speed. Some people would say that I am a possession receiver type of player. I love to catch the ball and make plays with the ball in my hands."

Andre has taken a few trips already this spring. He says that he is planning on making a few more this summer. The first may be just a few weeks away.

"I have visited USC, UCLA, Arizona State and California so far. I am planning on going to see Nebraska, Houston and Washington State. I will also take all five of my official visits."

Big Red Weekend is another junior day at Nebraska and it's on June 15th this year. Andre says that he's planning on attending right now to get a closer look at a big-time program.

"Nebraska is just a big-time program. They have some of the best facilities in the nation and they have great academic and athletic programs.

"When I visit I want to see if I am comfortable with the coaching staff and see if I can be comfortable in Lincoln for the next four to five years."
