"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.
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.
