Un-expected un-official visitor for Nebraska

An unexpected one comes creeping in for Nebraska. He is set to unofficially visit after camping there this summer. He has one unofficial under his belt so far and this weekend is coming to Nebraska.

Derrick Law may be a little conflicted this weekend. Don't hold it against him though. It's only natural when your former in-state school is taking on the team that you are unofficially visiting.

Law moved to Newton, Ia., 30 minutes east of Des Moines, last year after living in Kansas City. He grew up watching Kansas State and Missouri, but since moving to Iowa he has gotten the eye of Iowa and Iowa State.

It's easy to see why he has their eye too. Through eight games he has over 1,000 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns. "It's going pretty good. We have a a young team and it's kind of frustrating. We show are low points and high points," Law said.

"We're .500, 4-4. I know that I am over 1,000 yards and scored 16 touchdowns through eight games."

To this point Law is without an offer, but some schools are showing him some interest that according to him may lead to an offer. "Iowa State and Iowa have talked to me. Kansas State has been calling me."

To date, Law has taken an unofficial visit to Iowa for a game. "It was pretty good. Actually I grew up a Missouri and Kansas State fan. I went to Central and transferred to St. Pius (in Kansas City)."

Law hasn't set any official visits, but he has had some talks with schools and his parents about getting ready to set some up. "I have been talking to Kansas State about lining up an official."

Nebraska has been sending Law some letters and has also called Law this fall. "I'm supposed to be going up to Nebraska this weekend. That's for an unofficial visit. Hopefully they will talk about offering."

Law attended a summer camp this summer in Nebraska, so he has already seen the stadium and the campus, just not filled with thousands of fans. "I had a private workout with the coaches. I have only spoke to them once since the season started. I get a lot of mail from them. I think that I did pretty good. I had a slow start."

Everyone, to Law's knowledge, is being recruited as a running back. However, he has been known to line up at other positions on offense and can play defense and isn't opposed to playing any position in college.
