Reed enjoys visit

One of the few carry-over commitments, Kyler Reed, was able to take in his official visit to Nebraska this weekend. It wasn't necessary for him to feel any better about his commitment, he's as solid as can be, but it was a chance to talk with the coaches and show mom around. Reed and his mom enjoyed their time in Lincoln.

Kyler Reed, a 6-foot-2 and 215-pound ATH from Overland Park (Ks.) St. Thomas Aquinas, was in Lincoln this weekend. Reed, projected to play either tight end or H-back in college, enjoyed his visit.

"It went well," Reed said. "We took a tour of the campus, but that wasn't of any real big concern.

"I was really just taking my official visit more or less just to take it. To sit down and talk with the coaches."

That chance to talk to the coaches might be to really get to know some of the new coaches. Reed knows how Nebraska wants to use him when he gets there and is happy about it.

"I am pretty set with how Nebraska wants to use me. I wasn't worried about that. I knew already."

Reed had a chance to catch up with another player from Kansas while he was on his visit. A player that had an impact on him choosing Nebraska in the first place.

"Blake Lawrence was my host. He said that he really liked it there. He said that he was having fun.

"He also said that he really liked the new staff and that they are really teaching him a lot. He said that he is already learning more about the new defense than what he knew last year."

Besides Lawrence, Reed said that he didn't talk to many other players or even any of the other recruits. It was a busy weekend and he was doing something all of the time.

"I actually didn't have much time to talk to many of the other recruits. I was shuffling around between meetings and they were doing that with mostly everyone.

Reed was able to travel to Nebraska with his mother. It was her first time in Nebraska and she came away impressed with the school and the visit.

"It was my first time that my mom was at Nebraska. She really liked it. She really liked the coaches and the academic support."
