Perry rates Nebraska a "9"

Nebraska hosted OL/DT Jackson Perry from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman this weekend. Perry came away impressed with everything on Nebraska's spring game weekend.

Jackson Perry was on the recruits in Lincoln this weekend for the Nebraska spring game holding an offer. The standout, two-way lineman from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman said it was a busy day yesterday checking out everything that Nebraska had to offer.

"We actually got in late on Thursday night and just went back to the hotel," Perry said. "On Friday I got to see everything. I took a tour of the facilities, the campus, the dorms, met with Coach Bo Pelini, met some great people, met with the academic and life skills people as well. It was a busy day."

On Saturday Perry was able to check out what a home game in Lincoln might be like. The Huskers had their spring game and while it wasn't a sell out like it typically is Nebraska did have a lot of fans in attendance.

"We walked out of the locker room down the red carpet and kids wanted to shake my hand like I was one of the players," said Perry. "They had 60,000 fans there for their spring game and the people here are excited about their football team."

The Huskers like Perry on the offensive side of the football and he was able to see a glimpse of what the Huskers do on offense. He says that it's a lot like what his high school team does and that is a complete fit for him.

"I do see myself maybe coming here," Perry said. "They like me as an offensive lineman and they run a very simple zone and a powerful power game just like we do in my high school. That's what I know and that's what I would definitely like to play in."

There was not an intention to commit while in Lincoln, but not committing might have been the only thing keeping Perry from giving the visit a perfect score. He said that he definitely enjoyed his time there in Lincoln and is planning on making it back for another visit.

"I didn't make a commitment today. I would say that Nebraska is at the top right now for me," said the soon to be senior. "I would probably give the visit a "9". They showed me everything and gave it their best. Only way it would have been better is if I would have committed. When I commit, that visit will be a "10" and that could be the next time I visit Nebraska."
