Thenarse listing Nebraska as co-leader after visit

Nebraska had another big weekend of official visitors. Nebraska is looking for a couple of good safeties this year and one was in the stands to see a very defensive minded Nebraska team standout. How did Ricky Thenarse like his visit to Nebraska?

Nebraska was able to show off to the recruits that the Blackshirts are back. Ricky Thenarse had a chance to take in the game this weekend against Wake Forest.

"I am at the airport getting ready to go home," Thenarse said. "It was a real good time."

"I wanted to see the game environment and meet with the coaches. Coach Bill Busch is recruiting me and Nebraska is recruiting me as a safety."

Nebraska isn't what some people always think that it is going to be. For Thenarse he was a little taken back about what he thought Nebraska might look like and what it actually looked like.

"I was surprised. Surprised in a good way. I can't even tell you what I thought Nebraska might look like, but I definitely like Lincoln."

Nebraska is really the third school that Thenarse has seen, but it was his first official. He has been to Junior Days at UCLA and USC this spring. How did they compare?

"UCLA was about a '5'. USC was about an '8'. Nebraska was also an '8'. Those two are neck and neck."

Thenarse did not commit, but has Nebraska as a co-leader. As of right now he is only looking at one other official visit possibly to Tennessee.
