Khalil Tate checks out Lincoln

Khalil Tate visited Nebraska on Monday with a number of other recruits. The talented athlete was holding an offer from Nebraska and didn't have high expectations coming into the trip. After the visit though he says he wants to get back to Nebraska soon.

Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra super athlete Khalil Tate was part of a large group of visitors that Nebraska hosted on Monday. The 6-foot-1 and 195-pound recruit was holding an offer from Nebraska coming into the visit. He left Lincoln with an experience that beat his expectations.

"I was actually expecting that it was going to be boring," Tate said about anticipating the visit to Nebraska. "But, it's actually a very nice city and community."

The Nebraska staff is selling an idea to Tate to split some time. It is a split though. He would see time at two positions on the offensive side of the football in their offense.

"Nebraska wants me to play wide receiver with wildcat packages at quarterback. I wouldn't be fully devoted to wide receiver. I would rather play quarterback in college."

Tate had taken visits to Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma prior to visiting Nebraska. The Nebraska visit was different in their approach according to Tate which was a refreshing approach about what is really important.

"Nebraska was very informative about their school in general compared with the others that were more just strictly about football. You can't play football your whole life."

A number of visitors from Monday have said that they will visit Nebraska again. Add Tate to that list. Tate says he wants to get back to Nebraska very soon. The desire is there, but the plan is not firmly in place.

"I want to get back to Nebraska for the spring game," Tate said. "I haven't gotten any plans together for that trip yet."
