Mid-week visitor for Nebraska

Nebraska has been hitting it hard since the end of the dead period. Nebraska is looking to add some new names to the commitment list in the remaining weeks of the recruiting season. The Huskers were in-home last night with a standout player from Texas. Find out who it is and when he is visiting inside the "Red Zone"!

Tim Beck, the new assistant coach for Nebraska, isn't wasting any time. Ted Gilmore established the relationship with Jacquies Smith for Nebraska and since Coach Beck was already recruiting Smith at Kansas.

"That was kind of interesting," Smith said. "We laughed about that. Coach Beck was recruiting me for Kansas and now he was in-home with me recruiting me for Nebraska."

The last time that Jacquies Smith spoke with Big Red Report, Smith wasn't as interested in Nebraska as Nebraska was in home because of one big reason. Nebraska has satisfied that requirement now.

"Nebraska offered me. I will be taking a visit up there this week. I will be leaving to visit Nebraska this Thursday. I have a basketball game on Saturday afternoon and we had to work around that."

Smith has already taken an official visit to Michigan State before the start of the dead period. Going into the Nebraska visit, he has some idea what to look for.

"I just want to see how the new coaching staff is going to do on defense, how they intereact and what they have to say about Nebraska. I just want to get the overall feel while I am there from the players and how I fit in."

Smith was aware of the commitment to Nebraska by Josh Williams. Smith mentioned that he knew Williams and that they got along. Smith is being recruited to play some linebacker and some end.

"I can play both. I am very comfortable and into that. My junior year I came more off the edge. This year, I found myself playing more playing stand up, playing in space, dropping to the flats and the hooks."

"I don't know if I was playing the SAM, technically. I would really drop more to a zone coverage, but if I was matched up man on man on someone it was usually the tight end or the running back."
