Huskers host Caleb Bright

Nebraska scored a pair of 2016 offensive lineman last weekend against Illinois. There was another junior offensive lineman in town that saw a great fit for his strengths and Nebraska's offense.

Urbandale (Iowa) offensive lineman Caleb Bright took an unofficial visit to Nebraska last weekend. The 6-foot-4 and 275-pound Bright was impressed with the fan support for the Huskers.

Last week was my first trip to Nebraska," Bright said. "It was amazing. I really liked seeing the Husker tradition and they have had 337 consecutive sellouts. Their fans are great.

Bright saw a productive Nebraska offense put up big numbers against the Illini. He also saw a pair of fellow recruits with Nebraska offers pick the Huskers. He knows that getting a Nebraska offer might be tough to do, but sees a great fit.

"I think at my size that I would have to play on the interior of their line. They just got two 2016 commits that are interior lineman. I think that I read that they are only taking two next year. I love their offense. It's the perfect type of offense for me."

Nebraska has already had their eyes on one offensive lineman from Urbandale who has been to Lincoln already in Jake Heinrich. Heinrich and Bright haven't talked about taking a visit to Lincoln together, but Bright would definitely like to get back.

"I haven't talked to Jake about it at all. I have been getting letters and game invites from Nebraska a lot. I would love to get back there again for another game.

The class of 2016 for Nebraska picked up commitments from two four-star, top 300 players in Bryan Brokop from New Lenox (Ill.) Lincoln-Way West and John Raridon from West Des Moines (Iowa) Valley. Nebraska is expected to take a full class in 2016.
