La Fell and Bennett eyeing Nebraska visit

Few receivers in the nation can talk about numbers like this one deep in the heart of Texas. La Fell knows what to do with the ball after the catch. Nebraska was looking for an official of Bennett and La Fell in the same weekend. Is that set to be this weekend?

Nebraska on November 26 with Brandon La Fell is having a "nice" year. The 6-foot-1 and 180 pound receiver from Houston (Texas) Lamar is having a tremendous year, actually.

"It's going good now, we're 6-2," La Fell said. "I've got 25 catches for 735 yards and 10 touchdowns."

Yes, he is still averaging nearly 30 yards per catch and a touchdown reception one out of every two and a half receptions. Wow!

With numbers like that it is no wonder that some of the nation's best have stepped up to offer. He could obviously step in and contribute right away.

Can the Huskers get him into Lincoln for an official? Well, the answer is, not this weekend. "I have one official set to Missouri to November 5."

"I am planning on going to Nebraska on November 26 with Martellus Bennett. We're going together that weekend. We were supposed to go this weekend, but the coaches asked us to re-schedule."

Brandon and Martellus are pretty good friends. They are friends on the gridiron and on the hard-court. "We're close friends. I was with him this summer when we played basketball."

"He's a monster. He can play both in college. He's a beast, man. We were on a three-way call with Coach Blake one time. That is when we set up the visit."

Brandon just re-scheduled his official to Nebraska last week when Coach John Blake made his weekly call to La Fell.

A question that will please the Husker Nation that La Fell answered is who are his favorites right now? "I like Nebraska. That's my favorite. I like what's going on at Nebraska right now."
