Potter Returns From Official NU Visit

Zach Potter joined a few commits and a few potential recruits this past weekend as he enjoyed his official visit to the University of Nebraska. We chatted with Potter about his experiences down on the campus as well as what he enjoyed the most and what he thought of this year's U.S. Army All-American Game which featured several Nebraska commitments.

Zach Potter had a basketball game on Friday and once he made it down to Lincoln, all he really wanted to do was hit the hay.  Come Saturday, however, Potter was ready for the full-court press and a glimpse into what his future as a Nebraskan Cornhusker holds.  "It was great, I got down there late Friday night, pretty much just went to my room.  Saturday we did a ton of stuff, we started out with breakfast and then went around and saw the dorms and met with some academic people, the nutritionist and people like that.  Went over to the Texas-Nebraska game for a bit, then we caught some of the U.S Game.  Then we went to Famous Dave's with coaches and other recruits.  Then went out with our hosts and hung out with some of the players," said Potter.

 

Clayton Sievers hosted Potter and the two have gotten to know each other over the past year at camps, so it was a rather familiar atmosphere for the four-star prospect.  Potter also spent time hanging out with Nathan Swift, Lance Brandenburgh and Lydon Murtha.  Recent Nebraska commitment Brock Pastuer, long-time commit Jacob Hickman and prospective recruits Frantz Hardy and Dan Gorski visited along with Potter.  Zach chimed in a bit on teammate Gorski's and prospect Hardy's visit.  "(Hardy) seemed to be having a good time when we were at the Nebraska-Texas game, he was sitting with Coach Norvell.  Gorksi, I think he liked it a lot, I think he and his parents saw a lot about the program.  All in all it was a pretty good weekend," said Potter. 

 

While watching the U.S. Army All-American Game, Potter noticed his future Nebraska teammates quite a bit and was impressed with what he saw.  "I talked to Craig Roark and told him he played a good game.  We talked to him later that night.  Lucky looked really good.  (Phillip Dillard)'s gonna be really good, he's got a nose for the ball and gets there quick.  Jordan (Congdon) had a good day.  All six did really well. I think being down there's going to help all six next year," he said.
