Huskers stop by for in-home visit

Nebraska seems to be picking up on the pace to land some junior college talent in the 2014 class. The Huskers are making a push for Byerson Cockrell who took an official visit to Nebraska a week ago. Who is standing out right now for Cockerell?

Byerson Cockrell from Scooba (Miss.) East Mississippi is getting ready for his last junior college football game this Sunday. The standout JUCO DB said that Nebraska came by to see his mom for an in-home visit.

"Nebraska was by to see my mother last night," Cockrell said. "Coach Bo Pelini and Coach Terry Joseph were the coaches that went by to see my mom.

"I wasn't there. I was at school. My mom said she liked the academics that they told her about, the graduation rate and she really liked everything that they had to say."

One of the things that Cockrell might be considering is staying closer to home. He says that it's crossed his mind if he wants to stay close to home or follow opportunity wherever it might lead.

"I have thought about either staying close to home or going far away to school. If it's a good opportunity I will go to a school far away. Nebraska is on television every week and that helps."

There is limited time for Cockrell to work with when it comes to recruiting. He will be signing on December 18th and has his last junior college game this Sunday. He just scheduled an official visit for the last available weekend before signing day.

"I have an official visit planned for Southern Miss for December 13th. TCU wants me to visit and Cal does too. I don't know if I will take any other visits though. I doubt that I go."

There are approximately two weeks left for Cockrell before signing day and he says that there is clearly a team that is standing out. "Nebraska is at the top of my list, they're No. 1," Cockrell said.
