Nebraska commit comes back for BRW

Nebraska commitment Avery Anderson was in Lincoln this weekend, the third time this year, for Big Red Weekend. At this point, his visits are about building the relationships, getting comfortable with the environment and helping out with recruits.

Nebraska hosted a couple of future Huskers including Avery Anderson. Anderson, from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek, wasn't there last year and said that he comes back as often as possible to keep acclimating himself before enrolling.

"I didn't come to this event last year," Anderson recollected. "I came here for the spring game, camp and a junior day I think, but not for Big Red Weekend.

"First of all, I just love coming here because it feels like home. I got a chance to hang out with the players, recruits and all of the coaches again. It was great.

Anderson has been busy communicating not only with the other commitments, but also trying to get other players to join him in the class. He sees himself as a resource to the recruits while he is on these visits.

"Probably the best thing was just hanging out with the recruits. I like doing that and DaiShon Neal was here. The other recruits area able to ask us questions too after the players and the coaches."

There wasn't anything that shocked Anderson about Nebraska today because he had seen it all before. He did say that he is growing more comfortable with every minute he spends in Lincoln leading up to his enrollment in January.

"I have seen everything here so today was really about the recruits and building relationships. I continue to get comfortable with the environment there, the academics and with the strength and conditioning side."

Anderson said that there will be another group of commitments in Lincoln for the second half of Big Red Weekend. They all stay in contact with one another and he feels a bond with them all right now.

"The 2015 class is close and tight," Anderson said. "It's a family atmosphere here at Nebraska and it is already in the class too. It's almost like we are all brothers now."
