J.D. Spielman wraps up Nebraska visit

Minnesota prep wide receiver J.D. Spielman wrapped up his visit with Nebraska.

After visiting Nebraska earlier this spring, Eden Prairie high school (MN) three-star wide receiver J.D. Spielman is visiting the Huskers again this Saturday.

"It was even better the second time," said Spielman. "It was a junior day, so I was the only recruit there. I got to really spend some time with the coaches. It was more a 1-on-1 setting. Getting to watch a night practice was also exciting." 

The Scout.com No. 89 receiver says he will make a decision sometime in the next week or two. While Nebraska and Minnesota are his leaders, he's still considering everyone who has offered which also consists of Iowa, Iowa State and Michigan. 

"Nebraska said they are looking for a guy who can be a vertical threat as well as be able to run the ball out of sweeps," said Spielman, who talked about position coach Keith Williams. "He's an awesome guy. He's always got something to say and might be one of the funniest coaches I've talked to."

Because Spielman was the only recruit on campus, he was able to meet with head coach Mike Riley 1-on-1 twice. Once before practice on Saturday and once before he left on Sunday. 

Big Red Report asked him to wrap up the interview by saying the first thing that comes to his mind when he hears Nebraska and thinks of his recruitment with the Huskers. 

"Winning tradition," said Spielman. 

The son of Vikings GM Rick Spielman, he was, at one time, an Ohio State lacrosse commitment. His focus appears to now be on football.
