Meredith will be in Lincoln

The last commitment for Nebraska happened just before Nebraska was about to start their season. Cameron Meredith chose Nebraska over schools like Oregon and Oklahoma. This weekend he will be in Lincoln for his only official visit to see Nebraska take on what might be considered his favorite childhood school. It's a little ironic.

Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei high school is only one game into their season, but Cameron Meredith hasn't taken the field yet. The 6-foot-4.5 and 222-pound Meredith suffered a very late strain that has kept him sidelined.

"We have only played one so far," Meredith said. "I haven't played yet. I strained my hamstring and groin in the last practice before the season."

"I should be playing Friday, we'll see how it feels. I have a strained groin and it feels a lot better. I should be good to go this week."

With a game on Friday night for Mater Dei, Meredith plans to be up and at 'em early Saturday morning making his way back out to Lincoln.

"Yeah, I am going. It will be my official visit to Nebraska. I just want to see what the game day there is like."

"I want the whole experience of Nebraska football. I want to get to meet all of the players and the other recruits."

This weekend Nebraska faces off with USC, a team that had they offered might have received Meredith's commitment immediately. What will it be like to be in Lincoln rooting against USC?

"It just feels right to me, to be a Husker. All this week in class and in school have been telling me that Nebraska is going down."

"It is kind of ironic, growing up in California it's always been USC for me. I will be there this weekend and I will be rooting for Nebraska."

"Probably a year or two ago, I would have never imagined taking this trip that I am going to take this weekend, but I am glad I am now."
