Seevers coming to spring game

Although it is interrupting his ahoulder rehab, Kyle Seevers and his father are planning on being in Lincoln, Neb. this weekend for the spring game.

The first to offer Kyle Seevers was Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are after the 6-foot-6 signal caller from Lincoln County High School in Panaca, Nev. Since then he has made plans to attend the spring game in Lincoln this coming weekend.

"I'll get there on Thursday actually," Seevers said. "On Friday I am going to basically go and look at campus and walk around. If there is a practice hopefully I will get to that. On Saturday I am going to the game."

This is the first full-year of Bill Callahan recruiting personnel for the new offense at Nebraska. As a true pass-first quarterback there have to be some questions that need to be answered.

"I want to know what the expect from their players? What goals are being set? What are they trying to accomplish? I also wanted to see how tight the team was like if they were encouraged to live together their first year in a football dorm and stuff. See if they are like a family."

Coach Wagner, the offensive line coach, has been handling most of the recruiting for Seevers with Nebraska. He is interested in meeting him and the rest of the staff face-to-face.

"I am looking forward to talking to him (Wagner). I am of course looking forward to meeting Head Coach Bill Callahan."

"I know that Nebraska is trying to bring in a lot of potential quarterbacks this year. I want to know what their plan is to get me on the field as soon as possible to get me up to speed or if they have a planned redshirt year for me so I can get bigger and stronger."

One reason a redshirt year may be in Seevers mind now may be his shoulder and his rehabilitation he has been going through. It's fresh to him now about the need to get stronger. But, after his senior year things could change.

"I just had rehab tonight. It's going really good."

Since Nebraska has offered Purdue has been coming on strong lately. They have asked Seevers to attend an elite quarterback camp at Purdue this summer. There may be a date conflict though with the camp at Nebraska though.

"I think that the Nebraska and Purdue camps are on the same day. If they are I am going to the camp at Nebraska."

Despite only holding the Nebraska offer so far and Nebraska high on his leader board don't expect a commitment this weekend from Seevers.
