Corcoran will be back for summer camp

Josh Corcoran has been to Lincoln a couple of times before. The 6-foot-3 and 225-pound linebacker got to see the campus today and see a practice. What were his thoughts about today's visit?

Josh Corcoran has seen Nebraska a few times before, but today was a special visit. The three-star linebacker recruit from Lakeville (Minn.) South got to see all of the campus and talk with the academic folks.

"I took the red letter tour," Corcoran said. "It's a tour of the campus and you get to talk to the academic people. I plan on majoring in kinesiology or sports medicine. They have a good program."

After the tour and the academic meetings Corcoran was focused on the football side of the visit. He was able to sit in on the position meetings and heard a lot about the game that he's never heard before.

"After the tour I went to the linebackers' team meeting. It was definitely a different vocabulary than what I have ever used and it was complicated."

The 6-foot-3 and 225-pound linebacker really wanted to see the linebackers working out too. He said that today the group really focused on stripping the ball.

"We went out to practice and I got a chance to see how they do things. Today they did a lot of drills stripping the football and that was good to see."

There was some dialogue about what it's going to take for Corcoran to get an offer. Nebraska clearly has a lot of interest in the linebacker, but they would certainly like to get a better look at him this summer at camp.

"I don't know where I am on their board," Corcoran said. "Coach Els told me that he thinks I am athletic enough to play linebacker at Nebraska.

"Coach Els said th the would really like a chanc to work with me and wanted me to come to camp. I will definitely be there this summer for a camp session."

While Corcoran will come back to Lincoln this summer to try and earn an offer the first offer is already in. South Dakota State offered recently and it's a load off for the standout linebacker.

"It's a relief. It's been a lot of hard work and I am happy knowing that I am going to have a chance to play college football and get my education paid for."
