Official visit recap, CB, Donald Defrand

Like his teammate, Reynald Hill, Defrand is getting his fair share of attention. His size, speed and cover ability give him a versatility that schools crave and coaches covet. Also, like Hill, he took his official visit to Nebraska and gave his thoughts about his trip and where NU stands with him.

Donald Defrand (Dodge City, KS (Dodge City) 6'2-180-4.16/40) First of all, no that's not a misprint, Defrand ran a 4.16/40 handheld this summer "It was handheld, but that one the fastest times we've ever had at our school. It was just a good run I don't think I could do it everytime."

Donald's list of favorites is already pretty short and it just may have gotten alittle shorter "We (roomate, R. Hill) just got back from Nebraska. It was better than expected. They are by far my leader right now." How much of a leader? Well he plans on speaking with his coaches and family on whether or not to commit.

But if he does pull the trigger he will most likely take other visits as well "I do want to take my officials to Texas Tech, Kansas St, and Central Flordia. Maybe Ohio St. too, were waiting on a phone call to hear back from them."

What really stood out for Donald may be a suprise to some, it's not something you hear everyday "The graduation rate is what caught my eye. The academics and support they have there is amazing." Along with the academics he also loves the team/scheme as well "The players a coaches were great to us. And the team is something I want to be a part of. The run alot of man to man and thats my strength, it what I was to be in."

Rumor has been that they two roommates will be a package deal, Donald had this response when I asked "It's not out of the question. We're like brothers. But, I can't say that it is going to happen that way."
