Lewis loves visit to Nebraska

Some people had to be scared to have so many "warm weather" recruits in Lincoln over the weekend only to have freezing temperatures and snow fall over the weekend. It apparently didn't phase Travis Lewis too much. The 6-foot-2 and 220 pound LB/S from San Antonio (Texas) Lee enjoyed his visit to Nebraska, including the weather.

Travis Lewis was a late addition to a big recruiting weekend for Nebraska. The LB/S from San Antonio (Texas) Lee had a game on Thursday night making it possible to visit Lincoln.

"It was crazy," Lewis said. "I didn't get in until 10-something. I didn't get home until about 11:00."

"Oh man, I loved it. It was incredible. The snow was awesome. It was great. I'll play in anything."

Lewis said that the treatment that he received as a recruit stood out to him. He got that treatment from everyone in Nebraska.

"How they treat you. Man, it was awesome. The players and the coaches all treat you good. Everyone loves their football. Everyone wants you to be there."

Lewis commented that the fans were one of the biggest reasons why he enjoyed Lincoln so much. The fans knew who they were and were braving the cold with body paint to keep them warm.

"I had fans screaming my name. They were saying 'Travis! We need you!'. It was crazy. They were out there with no clothes on. They were incredible. They were crazy!"

"That's one thing that I just love. The Nebraska fans are awesome. They are crazy. Their fans are just great!"

Coach Phil Elmassian and Nebraska have had some time to prep Lewis about Nebraska. Lewis said that anything that they did tell him fell short of what he witnessed.

"It exceeded my expectations. It was just that great. That visit did a lot for me. It exceeded all expectations. I did not know what it was going to be like. It blew my mind. It was just great."

Another trip and a decision seem to be looming for Lewis. People could know his collegiate fate in just a couple of weeks.

"I am hoping to go to Oklahoma in the next two weeks and shortly after that I should know. I think that is what I am looking at."
