"Yes sir, I was in Lincoln," Sirles said. "I loved it. I really did. I thought the visit was a lot of fun."
One of the things that Sirles wanted to see was the vision of the new Nebraska staff after a couple of hard years in Lincoln.
Sirles said that he and Coach Pelini could have talked longer, but it was necessary to keep the visit moving. The visit though between Sirles and Pelini was necessary.
"When I got the offer from Nebraska, considering what has happened there recently, I didn't know what to think about it.
"I had a lot of questions about the team and the school. I questioned the tradition. With Bo and Tom Osborne back in Lincoln, the tradition is back."
The visit wasn't a long one, but it was enough to rocket Nebraska into the top teams on Sirles list. That top teams list is very short and elite company with Sirles.
"I just feel like those three head coaches at those schools aren't going anywhere and that I have had a good time talking with them. All three can also give me a chance to compete in my redshirt freshman year."
Sirles isn't done with visits this summer. The next is coming next weekend on the heels of a wedding in Chicago. There are plans beyond next weekend too.
"We go to Chicago next weekend for a wedding. That means I will have a chance to visit Northwestern. I called Oregon and am going to try and get out there.
"Flights are cheap to Portland right now so we can make that trip. I would like to get to Louisville, but it's more expensive to travel there. That might have to wait until my official visit."
The Huskers only hosted Sirles and his father yesterday. Mom was not able to make the trip and that may work out to the advantage for Nebraska and hosting Sirles again.
"My mom wants to see Lincoln this summer. She wasn't there this weekend, just me and my dad, and she would like to see it. At this point, Nebraska would also get an official visit from me as well."
Sirles mentioned that his process will come to an end fairly early in the season. "I will take some of my official visits and then probably commit in the middle of the season or so."
