NeKyle Lundie sold on the Huskers

One of the committed official visitors this weekend was NeKyle Lundie. Lundie was going to see Lincoln for the first time. What were his thoughts and did he make the right choice?

Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson wide receiver NeKyle Lundie had a bye week which allowed the 6-foot-2 and 192-pound Nebraska commit an opportunity to visit Lincoln. Lundie was in town on the same weekend as his friend and fellow Nebraska commit, Aaron Williams.

"I got up to Lincoln on Friday night," Lundie said. "I first met all of the coaches and I also met with the strength and conditioning staff. I met with a lot of other people here too. There were so many people I met with this weekend.

"I took a tour that night and got to hang out with some of the players. A.J. Bush was my host and we were hanging out with Ameer Abdullah and Tommy Armstrong that night. Aaron was with us too."

Saturday was a busy day with tours and meeting a lot more people associated with the program according to Lundie. Later that afternoon the focus started to shift back to the game that night against Illinois.

"On Saturday we got a chance to eat and then went into team meetings. We weren't in there too long because we went on more tours and met with the academic people. After that we went to the game."

One of the pregame activities that catches the attention of the recruits is the tunnel walk. Lundie was blown away that some of the fans knew who he was. Stepping out onto the field from the tunnel is something that Lundie found trouble putting into words.

"The tunnel walk at Nebraska is amazing. Some of those folks coming out of the tunnel already knew our names. Then we came out to field and I don't know how to explain seeing all 91,000 of those fans."

Nebraska put up some big offensive numbers against Illinois on Saturday night. Lundie says that the Huskers like him at a specific receiver spot, but he feels he can do more. He also sees a fit and a need for him there next year.

"The Nebraska coaches said that they see me as an "X". I can really play both spots though and I really like the offense that they run. I can see myself fitting in several ways. There are a lot of wide receivers leaving which gives me an opportunity to come in and play."

Lundie committed to Nebraska sight unseen. He had done some research about what he should expect and said that he was skeptical of his decision. After this trip though he says that he's confident he made the right decision.

"All of my ideas about what Nebraska was going to look like came from the Internet," Lundie said. "I was skeptical about it. I have always wanted to go away to school, but Nebraska is far away. I loved my trip. After this visit I am sure I made the right decision."
