"We just wanted to go one more time," Khalil Davis said. "We just wanted to make sure it was what we thought it was and that it was the right place."
Khalil says that the commitment to Nebraska was bout the feel at Nebraska. That mostly had to do with the people there in Lincoln.
"It's the way that they make you feel. It's like you are at home. They treat you like their own kid. It's a great program and they have great tradition."
"It's a great feeling to know that we are going to be there together," Carlos Davis said. "We have been playing together for a while now, but it's exciting to know that we will be Blackshirts together."
"Yes, Coach K is one of the biggest reasons why I chose Nebraska. The first time I met him it caught me off-guard by how down to Earth he was. He's just a straight shooter."
The plan for Carlos is coming together just as he wanted. Commit early. Concentrate on track season and senior year. "This is exactly how I had planned it. I wanted to commit early and have my senior year to focus on."
While the plan was to commit early and focus there could be one distraction. Recruiting won't stop. Teams will be coming at these two from every angle. Khalil says that it won't matter to him.
"For me it will be easy," Khalil said. "I will just ignore the attention. I know where I am going."
Looking at the film of both Carlos and Khalil you see similar frames, guys that understand leverage and have good strength. They are athletic though which has Nebraska thinking inside and outside on the defensive line.
"Nebraska said that they like us at either the three, the one and they also said that we could play outside. I like that a lot. We are versatile enough to do it."
There has been a player/recruiting coordinator in each of the last two classes for Nebraska. To this point, no one has emerged in the class of 2015. Carlos says that he's already reached out to one recruit and has some special ties to another.
Both Carlos and Khalil will throw discus and shotput in track this spring. Both of them qualified for state last year as sophomores.
