Dietzen talks about Nebraska

One of the names to emerge from the weekend as a visitor that slipped into Lincoln was junior offensive lineman Jon Dietzen. Dietzen went to visit the Huskers for Big Red Weekend.

Big Red Weekend was a success. The class of 2014 gained a number of commitments over the weekend, but more importantly might be what's to come in the weeks and months to come.

Jon Dietzen from Seymour (Wisc.) was in Nebraska for the weekend. The 2015 offensive tackle drove there with his family. He says that it was about a 10 hour trip and got started early with the visit on Saturday morning.

"It was an awesome visit," Dietzen said. "We drove there on Friday and got there that night. It's about a 10 hour drive is all. We didn't do anything that night when we got in.

"The first thing on Saturday was that everyone was getting together in the players' lounge. We moved into the film area and we went over the day. We headed out from there."

The 6-foot-5 and 305-pound junior offensive tackle was blown away by Nebraska's weight room. He was also impressed coming out of the locker room, walking down the red carpet and onto the stadium field doing the tunnel walk.

"The weight room is astonishing. That is one of the things that really stands out to me. The tunnel walk was breath taking when you got out onto the field and the stadium was huge and it felt right on top of you."

The Nebraska staff has extended an offer to Dietzen and after the weekend he says that he might be a good fit for Nebraska. "Potentially I think that I could be a good fit there. They have a good program. I like the big, physical offensive lines."

The visit this past weekend was Dietzen's first visit to any school. Still he says that Nebraska exceeded any thoughts he had about the school while on the visit.

"That was really my first trip to any school. The trip to Nebraska really exceeded every expectation that I had. I have seen big schools on the Internet. Nebraska really blows everything out of the water."

Not only was Nebraska his first college experience, but they are the first to offer and really show any interest. Dietzen says that because of that the Huskers are on top of his list.

"Nebraska is the first school to offer and because of that they are really on top. They are the only school to really show interest in me up to this point."

It's clear that Nebraska has uncovered a gem in Dietzen and the word is going to get out on him. The second offer for Dietzen could come as soon as this weekend. "I am going to camp at Wisconsin this weekend. After that I have my team camp. That's all that I have planned for my summer."
