Rodney Picou has been a Nebraska commitment since early August, but there has been a lot of talk about what would happen if a USC offer came into play. Recently, Rodney took his official visit to the University of Nebraska, so what did he think of his time spent in Lincoln? Does USC stand a chance if they do, in fact, come calling?
Rodney Picou is a prospect known as being large and versatile, something that
sorely needs on its depleted offensive line. There has been some talk, however, about
the firmness of Rodney's commit to Nebraska. Some have predicted that if USC were to
come in and give Picou an offer to play for them that he would accept in a

"It's solid, no matter what I'm going there," said Picou.
recently found himself taking in the Nebraska-Colorado game on November
26th where he hobnobbed with a few other eventual Cornhusker commits
along with a very old one from the opposite end of the country. Overall, Picou came away happy with the
experience. "It was great, me and
my dad had a good time. We just
hung out in the hotel, ate dinner with some of the players and hung out. Bernard Thomas and Fabian and all them,
plus the recruits that were there," he said. Rodney said that he didn't just enjoy
the atmosphere surrounding Lincoln, but the service wasn't too shabby,
either. "(I was impressed with) how
they treated me. It was good, like
at the game, the fans treated me good.
I liked the tunnel walk, too.
That was the best part," he said.
the topic of the solidity of Rodney's commit, we asked if he was interested in
taking any other visits before signing his letter of intent in February. "I don't think so, I'm not planning on
taking anymore trips. Just playing
basketball, that's part of conditioning and I lift weights on my own," said
Picou. So, if Rodney had an offer
from USC and Nebraska, all things being equal, he could
select whichever school he wanted to attend, which would be the victor? "Nebraska, I just enjoy Nebraska more, it was just overall better," he
