Jordan Ober headed home to make decision

Nebraska is clearly looking for some special teams help in this class. The Huskers hosted another long snapper this weekend. What were his thoughts and when can people expect to hear his decision?

Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman long snapper Jordan Ober is headed back to Las Vegas. There were some indications on social media that Ober might have committed this weekend.

"I didn't commit," Ober said. "I wasn't going to commit on my visit. If I commit it won't be until 3:00, Las Vegas time."

Despite the fact that Ober didn't commit he definitely enjoyed the trip to Nebraska this weekend. He came away impressed with a lot of things that he saw this weekend.

"I liked everything here at Nebraska. The facilities and the coaches were great. Their hospitality has been amazing. Everyone has been so nice to us."

Nebraska did have a walk-on step up and play last year after their scholarship long snapper took a medical redshirt. Ober spoke about the opportunity that could be there for him at Nebraska.

"I know that I would have to come in and work hard. If I did that, hopefully I could help the team out however possible."

Nebraska fans cringe when weather conditions are bad and it's a recruiting weekend. For Ober it was good to get it out of the way and understand how it can be when it's bad.

"I am glad that I got to see the weather at it's worst while I was here this weekend. The people have been very nice and the guys on the team have been great. Lincoln is a very cool town."

The visit to Nebraska didn't get a perfect rating from Ober mainly because of the weather. He says that the best thing that he experienced this weekend was the immediate acceptance by the members of the team.

"I would rate it a '9 out of 10'," Ober said. "The weather was rough this weekend. The best thing about the weekend was meeting the guys here that are on the team and how cool they were with me."

Ober says that besides the offer from Nebraska that he also has opportunities to walk-on at Arizona State, Boise State and San Jose State.
