"I was ready to," Pierson-El said. "I wanted to suit up. I will fit in well as a weapon and another choice on their offense. Overall we will have a powerful offense.
"I am looking forward to it and developing team chemistry with my team mates. I will play immediately on special teams. Coach Rich Fisher said that to me today, yesterday and even before the trip."
The 5-foot-11 and 170-pound Pierson-El was back in Lincoln after committing to Nebraska on an unofficial visit earlier this summer. He didn't travel alone. He returned with a couple of family members this weekend.
"I came here with my sister and my grandfather. It's my sister's second trip here, but it was the first for my grandfather. He had no idea how much goes on with recruiting, the hospitality at Nebraska and how much we were all liked. He was never alone. Someone was always with him talking with him."
Many have wondered what, if anything, mattered to the recruits when it came to the fact that Nebraska lost this weekend. Pierson-El said that it didn't him and all of the mistakes Nebraska made seem to be fixable.
"Losing is part of the game especially when you play in this conference," Pierson-El said. "It didn't really matter to me that Nebraska lost this weekend. I saw the flaws that Nebraska has to work on. They are a young team and improving."
Pierson-El got a chance to spend some time with a fellow commitment or two this weekend including Zack Darlington who was in Lincoln for his official visit. Pierson-El even got a chance to throw the ball around with the quarterback commit.
"It was great getting a chance to hang out with Zack. It was like we had been teammates for a long time. I can't wait to get on the field with him and lifting with him. We even got a chance to throw the ball a little bit."
