Darlington excited to be a future Husker

Nebraska commitment Zack Darlington has been a commitment since June and got a chance to take his official visit this weekend. The future Husker wants to not only make the fans, and particularly the young fans, days with his high fives but also bring a Championship to Lincoln for them as well.

Nebraska commitment Zack Darlington took his official visit to Lincoln this weekend. The 6-foot-2 and 205-pound quarterback from Apopka (Flor.) was blown away with his gameday experience in Nebraska.

"It was incredible!" Darlington said. "The part that blew me away was I walked down the tunnel after the team and the fans were calling me by my name.

"Kids were asking 'Zack! High five!'. I was just blown away by that as a recruit who has missed my senior season that I can make a kid's day with a high five.

"This is my home. I want to make the kids' day with more than just a high five. I want to win them a National Championship."

Darlington has seen Nebraska before, but this second time around was as memorable for him as the first. He's convinced that the tools are there for every player to succeed on and off the field at Nebraska.

"I am speechless every time that I am there. Their facilities are incredible. Ndamukong Suh put a lot of money into them and it gives the players an opportunity to become the best that they can be.

"If someone underachieves that is solely on them because Nebraska provides the finest to take care of you and to set you up to win at the game of life."

The future Nebraska quarterback got a chance to hang out with a number of other future Huskers. Darlington also had a chance to work on an uncommitted recruit that as he noted could help out the Huskers in a number of ways.

"I hung out with Demornay Pierson-El a lot. At the game I was with Luke Gifford and D.J. Foster. I went on my tours with Raymon Minor. He is a talented athlete that could help us out.

"I hung out with Johnny Stanton a ton. I like him a lot. He's a good character guy. You need to surround yourself with people like him. He is going to help me out a ton when I get up there."
