Picou returns from Nebraska a solid commit

It doesn't happen too frequently that a recruit commits to a school without ever having seen the school or the city. It might be a harsh reality sometimes for those recruits who find out that they just didn't click or flat out didn't like that school or city. Thankfully, that didn't happen with this key lineman.

Fortunately for Jordan Picou, the official visit was everything that he needed to see to stay true to his word. Picou committed to Nebraska sigh unseen, but he made it a point to see some important things while in Lincoln.

"I wanted the just see the stadium and the atmosphere, meet the rest of the coaches, see the living quarters and things of that nature," Picou said.

There was one important item that stood out to Picou and his parents who accompanied him on his trip to Nebraska. "The academic support system that they have there stood out."

"I knew going in that they were a really good school, but I didn't know that they were that good of school. That stood out. It really stood out to my parents. They loved it. They really loved it. They are excited."

Picou was born and raised in California and there may have been one advantage for Rodney Picou, Jordan's cousin, who visited during the season. The advantage was warmer weather. "It was cold. I liked it, but my parents didn't. I can deal with it."

Jordan was hosted by one person on one day and another player on the next. He was able to mingle with a lot of players though while he was there. "I had two hosts for the days that I was there. I got to hang out with some of the offensive lineman and some of the defensive lineman."

So in the end was the one visit that he chose to make after announcing his commitment to remain solid? "Yes, I think that I made the right choice. I thought through it with what else I had the table."

Jordan Picou will be one of the last commits to join this year's Husker class which will undoubtedly be one of the best in recent history.
