Most recruits will report a different feeling after joining a class and being on the sidelines, but for Gaylord it was the same old same old.
Now an ambassador for the 2015 class, Gaylord got a chance to meet some of his fellow commits face-to-face.
"It was the first time for me meeting Eric (Lee), Kendall (Bussey), and Avery (Anderson). I also talked with DaiShon Neal. He was a pretty cool guy," said Gaylord. "I met Nick Gates for the first time, but I think we have camped at the same place before."
What about Pelini's cat? "We were asking Coach Garrison if they had anything special planned after the Jack Hoffman touchdown run last year," said Gaylord. "All he said was ‘I can't let the cat out of the bag.' We didn't get that until the cat came out.
"Everything was a blast. You could see the players getting into it and the coaches were having a great time."
Gaylord will be back in June for Big Red Weekend. We will catch up with the 2015 commit that weekend.
