Nebraska pulled off a big recruiting win when they received a commitment from Scout.com Top 300 player Jalin Barnett. The Huskers are working another Top 300 player -- the No. 1 rated center in the nation -- and could be in-line to host this recruit next weekend.
Fred Ulu-Perry from Honolulu (Hi.) St. Louis is a UCLA commitment, but has been looking to make some visits. The 6-foot-2.5 and 295-pound Ulu-Perry was looking to make a trip to see a SEC school and catch up with a friend on the 23rd.
"I was going to visit Texas A&M next week," Ulu-Perry said. "The coach that was recruiting me was their wide receiver coach and they have a player there from my high school.
"They just wanted me to come and visit and check out their facilities and what they have to offer. That coach left for Kansas though and because of that I am not really considering A&M anymore."
Ulu-Perry was holding an offer from Oregon State and was being recruited by Mike Cavanaugh who is now the new offensive line coach at Nebraska. Cavanaugh followed up with Ulu-Perry and likely has Nebraska in-line to get that visit next weekend.
"Coach Cavanaugh has been recruiting me for Oregon State and now for Nebraska. I am in the process of setting up the visit next weekend to go see Nebraska. I would say that it's about a 90% chance I take that visit to Nebraska."
Nebraska lost Mirko Jurkovic to Ohio State around the time that Bo Pelini was fired as the Nebraska head coach. The previous staff seemed to want to take four offensive lineman in the class and that could still be the plan with Nebraska adding Barnett, holding onto Christian Gaylord and Michael Decker as well as still actively recruiting other linemen.
