"I got up there on Thanksgiving at about noon," Akinmoladun said. "I got a chance to eat with the players later that day and went to meetings with my position group. I got to meet with all of the tight ends and offensive linemen."
On the field before the game Freedom noticed that the Huskers wanted to really win the game. In the end though the Hawkeyes were just too much. "During pregame on Friday I could see that everyone was focused and wanted to play this game."
This was a good weekend for any of the commitments to be in Lincoln. There were four on official visits and two others that were there for an unofficial visit. Akinmoladun has strong feelings about the class that is being put together.
"I knew a lot of the recruits already. I spoke with all of the recruits and we are really building something special.
"I mean, we all feel good about the class. I think that there is a lot of talent in my class."
Like so many, Akinmoladun plays other sports in high school. He is still a little ways away from starting another sport, but says that a third is at least up in the air at the moment.
"I play basketball as well," Akinmoladun said. "We haven't started practicing yet. We will later in December. I haven't decided if I will do track yet or not."
