Quick Hitter: Akinmoladun enjoys BRW

The soon to be senior leaves without committing to NU, but says the Huskers are high on his list.

Coming into the weekend, Freedom Akinmoladun was targeted by many as one of the top possible commitments to come out of Big Red Weekend. The Grandview high school (MO) tight end heads home without pulling the trigger, but saw what he needed to on his visit.

"I had a good time. I met a lot of coaches, I met a lot of the recruiters, it really felt like a good atmosphere to me," said the soon to be senior, who was visiting Nebraska for the first time. "I talked with the coaching staff about how they use their tight ends and defensive ends and got a chance to see a lot of the campus. I think I saw everything. It was great.

"Right now, I would say Nebraska is really high, but I have to take my other visits and see how it goes with them," said Akinmoladun. "That way I can compare them with the other schools."

It sounds like a visit to Iowa and Kansas State could be in the works.
