Plans visit to Nebraska

Nebraska is looking to add depth and immediate contributors along the defensive line in the 2014 class. This defensive tackle has set up a September visit to see Nebraska.

Ricky Walker from Hampton (Va.) Bethel is chomping at the bit. The 6-foot-2 and 275-poudn defensive lineman is a day away from the start of his senior season and taking the field being a four-year starter at Bethel.

"We start our season this Friday," Walker said. "I have a good feeling about this season. I'll be a four year starter and I am anxious for this season.

"I would honestly say that this team has the talent that it takes to take it this year. We have really come together as a team."

There are two different defenses that Bethel runs and depending on which one they are in will cause Walker to line up differently on the line. What makes him special as a lineman though comes back to his great motor and intelligence.

"We play both the 4-4 and the 4-3. I line up at the three technique as well as the five. I will be shifting to the three in college. I have a high football IQ and I have a pretty good motor. I get after it."

Walker is trying to narrow his list and the Huskers are making sure that they are part of that trimmed list. The Nebraska staff has made a great pitch to Walker to visit on a week that allows him to see Lincoln over two nights as opposed to one.

"I have set up the visit to Nebraska," Walker said. "I have been messaging Coach Rick Kaczenski over Facebook. He said that he really wanted me to come to Lincoln for a visit.

"I play that Thursday so I can fly out Friday and get two nights there on the official visit. I really think that is a good reason to visit there since I get more time."

Walker says that he really wants to see what it's like at Nebraska for a game. He also wants to get to meet all of the coaches and get an understanding of what it's like to be a Nebraska Cornhusker football player on campus.

"I just want to witness the tradition of their football program, to see the football game atmosphere, meet the coaches and really understand the overall life of what it's like on campus and being a Nebraska football player."
