Speedy Lousiana Safety's NU Interest Piqued

In the ever-continuing search to find the next potential Blackshirt, Nebraska looks far and wide for just such a prospect and they may have found a keeper from Louisiana. What does this prospect think about the Cornhuskers and is it possible to tear him away from the bosom of the Southeastern Conference?

Dan Kreamer combines two things you absolutely love in a safety: speed and the desire to lay someone out.  "I absolutely love to hit," he said.  Kreamer stands 6'1" and weighs in at 195 pounds while turning in a fantastic 4.53 40 yard dash.  He benches 300 pounds, squats 365 pounds and cleans 275 pounds while carrying a 3.2 GPA in the classroom.  He had a fruitful junior campaign notching 136 tackles, 5 interceptions and 3 sacks and was named to the All-District team.  He currently holds no offers but is getting interest from much of the SEC including LSU, Florida and Arkansas, but much like on the field, Nebraska isn't afraid to mix it up with SEC powers and has some interest in the boy.  He claims no current favorite and has yet to finalize any camp plans.

Growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana, Dan's father was a big fan of SEC football following the local flavor of things.  Dan followed suit.  "It was probably Alabama and LSU growing up.  I just like their style of football, I like the SEC," he said.  When a prospect utters those words, it appears that the battle is over for anyone outside of the conference.  Interestingly, though, it appears one Big XII school might have the eye of Kreamer.  "I've always liked Nebraska.  That's always been a school I've thought about going to, I've always liked that.  Ever since Eric Crouch was at quarterback, he's the one who got my attention at Nebraska," Dan said. 

Kreamer wants to get the absolute most out of his collegiate experience and while he pines to hit the football field often, he also wants to make doubly sure that he can get a quality education in a place that hits him as clean and friendly.  "(I'm looking at) academics, the city, I like nice stuff, I don't really like colleges that are in the middle of a town that's kind of run down," he said.  Nebraska has been sending Dan quite a bit of informational literature and while he doesn't believe he's received anything handwritten from Nebraska, he isn't positive.  Kreamer isn't positive where he'll be able to visit and when due to work with his high school program, but he mentioned that he wants to hit some SEC favorites.  "I want to try to visit Florida or Alabama," he said.  Would he be interested in taking an official visit to Nebraska?  "Yes sir, no doubt."
