Huskers looking to nab another JC OT

It's not everyday that you can get in a top junior college tackle. Nebraska is planning on hosting one this coming weekend with Brock Pasteur, but they also have another one coming in the following weekend. The Huskers are hoping for both.

The once biggest concern of the Husker recruiting class is getting filled with commitments and recruit names that have never surfaced. Nebraska just received an oral commitment from Jordan Picou, cousin of another Husker commit Rodney Picou, and are hosting a pair this coming weekend in Brock Pasteur and Ben Ossai.

Now the Cornhuskers find themselves in pursuit of another top junior college offensive lineman, Kevin Meyers. Kevin, who is a soft commit to LSU, is opening things up again and taking additional visits. One of which will be to Nebraska next weekend.

"I am still taking my visits," Meyers said. "I will take all of them. I am taking a trip to Nebraska next weekend (1/21) and Oregon on the next weekend (1/28)."

Meyers admits that the attention that he has been getting from some of the nation's best football programs is a little bit overwhelming. "I had a few offers out of high school. It's nothing like now though."

"I am really looking forward to the trip to Nebraska. It's a football town. They have sold out all of their football games since like 1970. I look at the most outrageous things that they don't think that I'll look at when I am on visits."

To this point, Meyers has two official visits under his belt. He took one official to Oklahoma State and another to LSU. He committed to LSU, but since Head Coach Nick Saban has left for the NFL he has opened up the process again.

"I really like Coach Les Miles. He showed me some stuff on my visit. That was my best trip to Oklahoma State, but everything was just so spread out. You couldn't just leave the house and walk down to the store. I love the coaching staff though at Oklahoma State. LSU just had all of the other things that I was looking for."

Meyers contends that all of the schools that he has visited and will visit are his top targets when it comes to picking out a school to attend after he completes his time at Compton Community College. "I will take my trip to Nebraska and then to Oregon. After that I will have about a week to do the plus and minuses of each school and everyone will know where I am going on February 2."

One thing that Meyers knows about Nebraska is a player that recently signed and is presently on campus at Nebraska, Ola Dagundero. "My buddy Ola is there at Nebraska now. Nebraska just called me one day and said that they were interested in me."

"I told Nebraska that I was committed to LSU and I told them about Ola. They said that they were interested in seeing his film. Ola called me one day and said that they offered him after they saw his film. They loved him."

"I had to block him everyday. He should have been the top defensive tackle in the nation. I pancaked Gabe Long effortlessly. Ola is better. Ola is just great. He is a great pick up for Nebraska. I guarantee he will be a starter for them by the end of the season."

"I know that he is that good. He has no respect for the opponent and their skills. Out of 100 times, he would beat me 25 of them."

The two would like to play together beyond their days at Compton it seems. Their days even go back before Compton. "That would be great to play with him again in college."

While it doesn't seem that Meyers will be ready to commit to Nebraska on his official it is pretty much a foregone conclusion that he will take his last visit.
