Kahlil Haughton rates Nebraska visit a "10"

One of the highest rated recruits in attendance for the Nebraska game this weekend was Waco (Texas) Midway safety Kahlil Haughton. What were Haughton's thoughts about the visit to Lincoln?

Kahlil Haughton took his first trip to see Nebraska this weekend. The Scout 300 prospect from Waco (Texas) Midway was at the airport and thinking about what he had seen in Lincoln the past 48 hours.

"I am at the airport and all checked in," Haughton said. "I got into Lincoln on Saturday morning because we had a game on Friday night.

"I got to speak with the academic advisers, drove around the campus, saw the facilities and just kind of took a tour. I also met with some of the coaches and sat in some of the team meetings."

The four-star safety was impressed with the fans at Nebraska. They were yelling his name as he came out of the tunnel onto the field. It was something that he definitely wasn't expecting.

"It's definitely not something that hear at other schools because we're just in high school. The tunnel walk is really cool and so is seeing all of the fans. The fans here are great."

The Huskers were aggressive and forced some turnovers in the secondary and even scored a defensive touchdown against Miami on Saturday night. Haughton sat down with the secondary coach and felt like he could fit in well at Nebraska.

"I think that I would fit in well with their coverage. Coach Charlton Warren explained things to me and it seems simple enough. I think that the defense played well the other night. They like me as a safety."

The visit got a perfect mark for Haughton which is saying something considering he's already taken an official visit to Oklahoma. Haughton says that he has plans to take official visits to Arkansas and Texas Tech as well.

"I would probably say it was a '10', honestly," Haughton said. "The best thing was the game and how loud the crowd got and their energy. If anything could have been better I wish that I had more time. I didn't get to talk enough with the players."
