Minor blown away by Nebraska

Raymon Minor was one of seven official visitors in Lincoln this weekend. What were the thoughts about his official visit to Nebraska this weekend?

Raymon Minor from Richmond (Va.) Benedictine took his first official visit this weekend. The talented athlete reached beyond the original top five and took a visit to see Nebraska this weekend.

"It went really good," Minor said on his way to the airport. "It's a really nice campus and the stadium yesterday was crazy. Their fans were nuts.

"I really liked the tunnel walk and coming out to where all the fans were. The stadium is huge. I have never been to a school before where all of the building are nearby."

Minor said that the other facilities that Nebraska had caught his eye too. The size of the weight room and the new academic center were just a couple of the things away from the football field that stood out to him.

"The weight room really caught my eye because it's huge. The academic center for the players was really nice too. I really got along with the team."

Nebraska had told Minor previously that they liked him either as a wide receiver or as a linebacker. This visit gave him a good chance to sit down to talk through which spot he really fit the most.

"I got a chance to sit down with the coaches to see where they thought I fit in on the field. They said that they like me as an outside linebacker. I like that. I think that I can play either position. I just want to get on the field."

When asked to rate the visit to Nebraska there wasn't an actual number that Minor could come up with. Mainly because he didn't expect things to be as nice as they were. He was really blown away by his experience to Nebraska this weekend.

"I didn't expect what I saw here," Minor said. "Not at all. It's hard for me to rate because of that. I didn't expect for it to be this nice. The fans are so loyal. It's a great campus."

The loss on the field is something that came with the visit. Minor said that there were some players that were mad about the way they played, but it didn't take away anything from his time there in Nebraska.

"No, not really for me," Minor said. "Some of the players were upset last night when I was with them. We had a good time though handing out. The loss doesn't change my opinions about Nebraska at all."

Minor released a top five list at the end of September and Nebraska didn't make the cut. He said that the Huskers didn't give up and were encouraging him to just take a trip. That persistence really paid off for the Nebraska staff.

"They just did a great job recruiting me. They really kept telling me that they wanted me and that they needed me to visit. I really felt that I need to go there and check them out."
