Scott talks about official visit

There was just one official visitor in Lincoln this weekend to see Nebraska take on South Dakota State. What were DeAndre Scott's thoughts about his visit to Lincoln this weekend?

DeAndre Scott from Philadelphia (Pa.) Imhotep was the only official visitor for Nebraska this weekend. The 5-foot-8 and 180-pound defensive back caught up with BigRedReport.com when he was at the airport getting ready to head home.

"I am at the airport getting ready to leave," Scott said. "I got here on Friday. I was able to tour the facilities on Friday and went to the team dinner and movie later that day."

On Saturday Scott got the see the academic side of the school. He said that the type of support that Nebraska offers to their players is exactly what he needs and is looking for in a school.

"I got to meet with all of the academic people from Nebraska on Saturday before the game. They have a lot of help here for the players. They offer the help that you need to be successful, but expect you to put in the work. That's exactly what I need."

After the academic tour Scott headed out to see the game. The three-star recruit was blown away by the environment and said that there are people back home he thought of while he was there in Lincoln.

"We went to the game after that. There was a motivational video for the players before the game and the game was wild. I wished that everyone back home got a chance to experience what I did this weekend."

The Nebraska defense is young and didn't start out great. However, Scott said that despite that they pulled together and played well. He said that he thought he was a good fit for what Nebraska asks their defensive backs to do.

"They didn't give up after giving up a couple of quick scores," Scott said. "They stuck together and fought through it. They had some blown assignments and missed some tackles, but played hard.

"I like their defense and what they expect of their defensive backs. They like me as a cornerback and as a nickel. They said that sometimes they could see me moving down into the box. I like the physical side and the coverage side of playing the position."

The visit got a high mark from Scott. He said that the game along with the fans were the high points to the weekend. "I would say that it was a "9". The best thing that I experienced all weekend was the game, the environment and the fans. It was amazing."

There are nearly 40 offers on the table right now for Scott. The official visit has helped Nebraska and Scott has the Huskers in his top three. At this point he doesn't have any other visits set up.

"I have 37 offers currently and after this official visit Nebraska is definitely in my top three with Arizona State and Central Florida. I don't have any other official visits set up right now. I need to talk with my coach about that when I get back."
