Solidly committed

Rumors started around spring game weekend in Lincoln that Nebraska commitment Kendall Bussey was going to take visits. The rumors are false as Bussey is only thinking about the Huskers.

Kendall Bussey from New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman School was in Lincoln this past weekend. The Nebraska commitment really liked that he saw from the game, but also said that hanging out with the other commitments was an important part of the weekend and to start planning his future as a Husker.

"I really enjoyed the visit," Bussey said. "It was awesome. I got a great chance to hang out with some recruits. We were talking about rooming together next year.

"I have been talking about living with Avery Anderson, Eric Lee and DaiShon Neal. I have been talking about it with Spencer Tears too. I've really been talking with everyone."

Bussey is staying busy this spring running track and also working out getting ready for football. There is probably another opportunity for Bussey to get up to Nebraska before this fall in June, but says that will be it until his official visit.

"I am running track and working out right now. i am planning on making it to one of the Big Red Weekends. That will probably be my last unofficial visit that I take until my official visit.

"Eric, Avery and I are talking about taking our official visit for the Miami game. I have been looking at my schedule and they are looking at theirs to try and get back for that game."

The thought of the trip in June to Nebraska being his last official visit might put to rest some concerns about Bussey taking trips to other schools. That was the word following the spring game and Bussey says there are those that want him to keep looking around a bit.

"Of course my coach wants me to look at other schools," Bussey said. "I'm 100% to Nebraska. My father and I are solid with the choice to commit to Nebraska. It helps that the class is close and that my dad played football with Coach Rich Fisher at Colorado. I am close with Coach Fisher and Coach Ron Brown."

Both Anderson and Lee are going to graduate early to enroll at Nebraska. Bussey said that he is going to look into it, but wasn't sure of the likelihood that he could do it.

"I am going to look into the possibility of graduating early, but graduation at my high school is a big deal. I am actually not sure if they allow early graduation."

It's very clear from Bussey's film that he has home run speed. He demonstrated that ability in track this spring by running a very fast, electronic 100-meter time recently.

"I ran a 10.5 electronic 100-meter. I am not sure where that is at for fastest in the state. That is something that my coach and I haven't had a chance to look into. We have our district meet this Tuesday."
