Somerville checks out Nebraska

It was just a year ago when Trai Mosley came to Lincoln for camp and walked away with an offer. Another Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson cornerback was in town this weekend for both camp and Big Red Weekend.

2016 cornerback KeShawn Somerville from Pflugerville (Texas) Nebraska was in Lincoln this week. The 5-foot-10 and 170-pound Somerville was in Lincoln for camp during the week and Big Red Weekend which was today.

"I got to Lincoln on Thursday night," Somerville said. "I went to camp on Friday and Big Red Weekend on Saturday. I think that I did really well in camp. Coach Charlton Warren says that he likes my feet, backpedal and how I get out of my breaks.

"He asked if I played offense because he was surprised by how good my feet were. I didn't have an offer before I came to Nebraska, but in talking to Coach Warren he said that there is a process and he wants to look into me more."

Somerville said that Big Red Weekend on Saturday provided him an opportunity to see the football program up close. Afterward he said that he liked the academics that Nebraska had to offer as well as how the Huskers incorporated technology into the program.

"The thing that really stood out to me about today were the academics. Nebraska graduates 94 or 96% of all of their players. I really like how they use technology with their program too.

"Coach said that if there is some film that they want the players to watch they get it out to them over their iPads. The facilities were great. I didn't expect to see that at Nebraska. I really liked their weight room, locker room and indoor facility."

This time last summer we were talking about another Hendrickson cornerback -- Trai Mosley. Mosley ripped off a fast 40, showed good ball skills, got an offer and committed. Somerville said that he spoke with Mosley today.

"I spent two to three hours with Trai today. He was in a meeting today with me and Coach Warren. He told me that he really loves the school and that I would be a good fit there too."

Somerville is a 2016 recruit, but he's already a Baylor commitment. The visit to Lincoln didn't change anything on the commitment front and it seems that he will continue to take trips to explore places he has never seen before.

"I am still young and I love Baylor," Somerville said. "I am taking advantage of these opporunities and exploring other schools. This is a blessing to me. I am still firmly committed to Baylor."
