Can't question the commitment

Avery Anderson is done with summer school and his summer is basically over. That's fine with the four-star defensive back who academically will be ready to transfer to Nebraska in January.

Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek defensive back Avery Anderson is done with summer school. The four-star recruit didn't have a lot of fun taking the classes, but they are in his rear view now.

"Yes sir I have been done with school as of Thursday," Anderson said. "I took first and second semester trigonometry and statistics. It's wasn't the funnest thing to do; I got A's. I am happy it's over."

The summer classes were for Anderson to get academically set to graduate early and enroll in college. Both Avery and another Nebraska commitment are set to enroll in January.

"Eric Lee and I are both set. We just got our senior schedules. The NCAA reviewed the senior schedules to make sure."

Anderson's summer classes are over -- and so is his summer -- rolling into practices that started today. Anderson will go right from conditioning into fall camp.

"In Colorado you have a contact week and we finished up on Thursday. We have a week of conditioning and that goes into two-a-day practices."

Some of the Nebraska commitment are setting up their official visits to Lincoln. Anderson said that he doesn't have that set up, but he knows of four weekends that he will be in Lincoln anyway.

"I haven't truly decided when I will take my official visit. I am going to the Miami game. I that's when Kendall Bussey and Eric are going. I am going to FAU and McNeese State. I will also be there for Illinois."

Nebraska revealed their alternate uniforms that they will wear for the Illinois game. Anderson admitted that he liked the alternates, but still prefers the "ordinary" uniforms.

"I think that the alternate uniforms are sweet. But to me, nothing beats the traditional red and white uniforms. They're sweet."

Anderson and Lee will receive some benefits after having signed their financial paperwork. Anderson says that it also sends a message about how strongly the two feel about Nebraska and their commitment.

"I think that it's great to do," Anderson said. "It really shows our commitment to the school and the team. This will allow for us to communicate more with the coaching staff and get the play books."
