Hart checks out Lincoln

Prior Lake (Minn.) linebacker Alex Hart is holding onto a couple of offers. There are a lot of things to like about him considering his size and play-making ability. Hart traveled to Lincoln this weekend to check out a Nebraska practice.

Alex Hart was one of a couple recruits visiting Nebraska this weekend. The 6-foot-2.5 and 215-pound linebacker from Prior Lake (Minn.) didn't need to see a lot of the things on campus because he's visited Nebraska before.

"I was there just for the day on Saturday," Hart said. "I got in the night before with my dad. I got a chance to see some of the facilities, but I had seen most of them before because I was at a game last fall against Michigan State."

Getting to Lincoln to see Nebraska practice was one of the most important parts of the weekend for Hart. He wanted to how things worked behind the scenes and even got a chance to sit in on some team meetings while he was in town.

"I wanted to see the team perform and observe how things function while they practice. I also wanted to see their drills and what they do. I got a chance to go to the linebacker meetings and it's a lot of information. I was swimming a bit."

Hart plays outside linebacker in high school, but the Huskers like him at another position. It's not a huge change, but there are some differences that Hart does notice.

"They like me now as a MIKE linebacker, but I play as an outside linebacker. I think that it would be cool to play inside. I'd have to do a lot of the same things that I am asked to do already. There are some differences though."

There wasn't any discussion about an offer this weekend. It sounds like the Huskers would like Hart to be in Lincoln this summer for camp for further evaluation. "Nebraska told me that I was a top recruit for them," Hart said. "They want me to come back for camp this summer and do well."
