McLean talks about Nebraska visit

There was a strong list of 2015 recruits in Lincoln for Big Red Weekend this past Saturday. One of the juniors in attendance holding a Nebraska offer was Adam McLean.

Adam McLean from Gaithersburg (Md.) Quince Orchard is back home in Maryland after taking a visit to Nebraska this weekend. The 6-foot-2 and 260-pound defensive tackle came away impressed with what the Huskers have to offer.

"The visit went great," McLean said. "I just had an awesome time. Getting a chance to meet and talk to Coach Bo Pelini was awesome. I really liked interacting with the other recruits from around the nation. I really liked holding the Heisman Trophy and the BCS National Championship."

The facilities are always something that the recruits come away impressed with when they visit Nebraska. The facilities and the technology that Nebraska has and uses really blew McLean away while he was in Lincoln.

"That facilities at Nebraska are just crazy. The technology and the time that they put into their facilities for their athletes is great. I have never seen a school that recorded the players' workouts, played them back and showed you how to workout better and safer."

McLean was excited to get a chance to meet and talk to the head coach, but the relationships that he is building with the defensive staff are very solid. McLean spoke with the defensive coaches about the Nebraska scheme and he thinks that he could be a good fit.

"I really feel like Coach John Papuchis and Coach Rick Kaczenski are connected. I had a good time with them. I talked to them about the defensive line and I feel like I could really fit in great.

"The defensive line scheme is complex at Nebraska. I like the system because they really prepare and work hard to put their players in situations to have success."

The score for Nebraska is high, but lower than what you might think based on all of the glowing remarks McLean has had about Nebraska. That's because there isn't a strong basis for comparison and the visit will definitely be a benchmark for other visits he will take.

"I would say that Nebraska was an "8". I had a really great time there on my visit. The visit exceeded my expectations of what I thought I would see. It's not a higher rating because I don't have a lot of other schools to compare it to."

Those other visits that McLean will take are actually more plans than anything right now. "I plan to go to Ohio State, Virginia Tech and on July 7th I will be in Texas for camp. I want to get over to Texas while I am there for a visit."
