Visit goes well for Kreikemeier

This is actually an exceptional year for in-state talent in Nebraska. There is one five star, a four star and a handful of three and two star players that come from the most populated of areas to some of the more rural areas. Nebraska has offered eight players, in-state, and Micah Kreikemeier was one of the last to get an offer and commit.

Nebraska grown, Micah Kreikemeier, was in Lincoln this weekend. The 6-foot-4 and 215-pound athlete from West Point (Nebr.) just got home a couple of hours ago.

"I just got home an hour or two ago," Kreikemeier said. "The trip went really. It just went really well."

The visit was a good chance for Kreikemeier to have a chance to talk with the new defensive staff. He came away very impressed with the new staff in Lincoln.

"The whole staff. They are so down to Earth. They talk to you at their level. They don't act like they are better than you.

"They are just so fun to talk to. You can talk to them about anything. They can carry on a conversation like a long-time friend."

One of the coaches that Kreikemeier had a chance to talk with the most was the linebacker position coach. Micah was told where he was being projected and the benefit if he has to move from linebacker to defensive line.

"I was talking to Coach Mike Ekeler and he was telling me outside linebacker at the WILL or BUCK, whichever one, and maybe if I do get big enough to rush end.

"As a linebacker, you learn the whole defense. You don't just learn your position. If I need to make that transition it will help."

Kreikemeier said that after he committed to Nebraska that he got on the phone and told all of the schools that were once looking at him that he was committed.

"I called up Kansas and Iowa State right away after I committed to Nebraska and they wished me luck. They were cool about it."
