Kendall Bussey talks first game in Nebraska

Nebraska fans were excited to hear that future Husker, Kendall Bussey, was in Lincoln this weekend. What were his thoughts about this trip and will he take visits to other schools?

Nebraska had a very important unofficial, committed visitor this past weekend when Kendall Bussey showed up. The standout running back from New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman has been to Lincoln a handful of times, but not for a game.

“I had a great visit,” Bussey said. “I know that I have been up to Nebraska either four or five times now, but this was my first game. It really was a great trip. I loved the gameday atmosphere.”

Bussey and the Husker faithful all saw something that they didn't want to when Ameer Abdullah was injured this past weekend. Obviously there had to be some questions about how things would look next year for Bussey after Abdullah graduated and everyone got that glimpse unfortunately.

“Obviously, you don’t want to see Ameer get hurt. They have two guys there in Imani Cross and Terrell Newby who are No. 2 and No. 3, but I think could come in and earn some playing time and snaps. I think that I can do a lot of the same things that they can do on the football field.”

Bussey has been to Nebraska a number of times and will return at least one more time for his official visit. He says that he would like to make it back to for another game this season, but it will come down to whether his schedule allows him to or not.

“I am not sure if I will be able to or not. I would definitely like to come back for another game. I will take my official visit to Nebraska after the season is over with.”

While Husker fans were excited to see Bussey on the sidelines this weekend. It was great to see real chemistry between Bussey with the other Nebraska commits. There is a real question though about whether or not Bussey will visit other schools.

“That is something that I haven’t discussed with my father," Bussey said. "He is the one that is really handling that.”
