Ofodile visits Lincoln

Nebraska hosted the No. 8 wide receiver in the nation, Alex Ofodile, from Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge. The talented receiver was impressed with the campus and likes what he saw and heard about the wide receiver position for the Huskers.

Alex Ofodile is going to be very busy over the coming weeks. The 4-star receiver plans on making a number of trips, but yesterday the Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge wide receiver visited Nebraska.

"I got there on Friday," Ofodile said. "We actually drove back last night. It's about a four and a half-hour drive back so we got back about midnight. It wasn't too bad."

The first things that Ofodile did in Lincoln was check everything out on a tour. One thing that he noticed was how close everything was for the athletes and how it was all within walking distance and convenient.

"We checked out the facilities as soon as we got there. I liked how everything is really close together and with all of the classes being right around there I can walk to everything."

After the tour Ofodile got to see something else that he was there to see. The Huskers were practicing which gave the No. 8 wide receiver in the nation a chance to really look at the offense and see the wide receivers that are already in the program.

"I got a chance to watch practice later that day," Ofodile said. "The wide receivers for a lot of touches even though you could tell that they were holding back a little bit for an upcoming scrimmage.

"I thought that the pace of practice was fast and I thought that the competitiveness among all of the wide receivers was good. They have a lot of talent there."

Ofodile set out to get a better understanding of how Nebraska intended to use him on the field. The answer was exactly what Ofodile wanted to hear: doing it all.

"Nebraska actually wants me to do a little bit of everything, like they use Kenny Bell, so I could play a lot of different spots. I like that idea a lot."

This was Ofodile's first visit to Nebraska and he says that he hasn't started to compare any of the schools he's seen with one another, but that based on what he knew about the Huskers it was a very good visit.

"The visit definitely met all of my expectations that I had. I was impressed by all of it."

The calendar for Ofodile over the next six weeks or so is incredibly busy. He's not sure about making any return visits to any of these schools he's seeing just because of the number of schools and visits he has set at the moment.

"Right now I couldn't tell you for sure if I will make a return visit," Ofodile said. "I have so many other trips coming up."
