Anderson excited about future in Lincoln

Nebraska has to be excited about how the future is setting up. The Huskers looked sharp on the field and a commitment like Avery Anderson was in the stands yesterday and will be on the field for them next spring.

Avery Anderson, a four-star cornerback from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek, committed to Nebraska in February on a junior day visit and had visited a number of times before. Anderson was back in Lincoln this weekend for the spring game, but this year it was a little different.

"I went up with Eric Lee to the spring game this weekend and last year," Anderson said. "Last year we didn't even have offers yet and this year it was completely different. We are committed and we know the coaches really well. I was really a lot more comfortable with no recruiting pressure on me."

The Nebraska defensive secondary really needs types of players that can play both cornerback and safety spots. Anderson knows that he has the ability and size at 6-foot-1 and 174-pounds to play both roles for the Huskers.

"I was really watching the defense yesterday and got excited when I thought about seeing myself doing those things. That is how I can play as both a cornerback and a safety. This team is young too and athletic and that's exciting to see. I look forward to getting there and working with them."

Anderson is on pace to enroll in Lincoln in the spring. There was definitely some reason to be excited knowing that he would be on the field with those players at this time next year.

"Both Eric and I are on pace to graduate in December and enroll in January at Nebraska. We are both really excited about that opportunity. Hopefully I will be playing in the state championship game in November, graduating in December, enrolling in January and then playing in that same game this time next year."
