Williams talks about Nebraska visit

Nebraska held their spring game on Saturday and some recruits like Aaron Williams traveled a long way to check out the Huskers. What did he have to say about his visit to Lincoln?

Aaron Williams from Atlanta (Ga.) Carver has been in Nebraska now for about three days. The 5-foot-11 and 181-pound cornerback took tours on both Thursday and Friday and came away impressed.

"I actually got here on Thursday," Williams said. "I got a chance to tour the facilities on Thursday and I toured the campus on Friday. Their facilities are top-notch; beautiful. The coaches and the players are very family oriented. The campus is real nice and the town isn't too big and isn't country either."

Williams was definitely impressed with the game day atmosphere particularly the pre-game walk from the locker room to the field that the recruits make before the team. It wasn't a sellout, but Williams said that Memorial Stadium was loud on Saturday.

"It was amazing to walk out on that red carpet and into the stadium. The stadium is huge and there were 60,000 fans there today. It got real loud in the stadium. Both teams in the game on both sides of the ball competed real well."

Carver Head Coach Darren Myles told BigRedReport.com earlier in the week that Williams is an incredibly intelligent player. The Husker must think so too tabbing him a nickelback recruit that can play both cornerback and safety in their defense.

"Oh yeah, I think that I would fit in their defense," Williams said. "I like how Nebraska sees their safety and their cornerback spots as being inter-changeable. They run a lot of man and zone coverage and they see me as a nickel back or a guy that can play both positions in their defense."

Williams was definitely impressed by his trip to Nebraska. He said that he didn't commit, but he didn't plan to either and has Nebraska solidly on his leaderboard. "I didn't commit and I wasn't planning on it. I know that Nebraska is definitely in my top five schools."
