"I about to call the coaches at Nebraska," Reed said. "I was just about to do it. I said that I was going to announce it tonight."
Early thoughts about Reed's weekend in Lincoln, following his commitment, lean towards having a good weekend. The visit met or exceeded everything that he has heard about Nebraska before his trip.
"The visit went really well. It pretty much met all of the things that I have ever heard about Nebraska, and I have only heard good things."
"I really liked the fans there at Nebraska. They're crazy. Half of the people that were up there knew who I was already."
The fans knowing the visitors is something that is very unique to Nebraska. For Reed, it showed how much they are into it and their chanting his name made him feel a little more welcome.
"It felt like a warm welcome and the weird thing is I am not even on the team. I really liked that. It just felt like I was at home."
"It's something that I want to be a part of. It's a program and a team that I want to be part of for the next four to five years."
One of the things that Reed wanted to talk about in Lincoln was what position he is being recruited to play. Reed met with two different position coaches and it sounds like it could be either, but he would definitely prefer one over the other.
"As far as I know, they would take a look at me to play either, but I am pretty sure they want me at linebacker. If it came down to tight end or linebacker I would prefer linebacker."
"If they wanted me at straight-up receiver or linebacker, I would have to think about it a little then. We'll see what happens when I get up there, I guess."
The loss on Saturday night didn't seem to have an effect on any of the visitors. Sure, they probably would have preferred a win, as would all of the fans there that night, but Reed kept things in perspective.
"No, not really. It's not like they just lost to any old team. It didn't bother me. Lots of teams lose to USC. I thought that early in the game things went Nebraska's way. I am not too worried about it."
