Trio making their way north

With the camps up and rolling in Lincoln, it is also a good time to ask players to just take a visit and look around. The Nebraska staff will be busy on Thursday with the second session starting up as well as hosting three players with offers who will be on campus with their head coach. This trio of players, from the Dallas area, is traveling on Wednesday for their visit on Thursday.

Big Red Report brought you the information about Cordarius Golston being in Lincoln on Thursday. It turns out he will not be alone. Along with Golston and his head coach, Andrew Jackson, there will be two other players in attendance.

"Oh yes sir, Demontrae Hurst and Josh Hunt will be coming up as well," Golston said. "Hurst plays cornerback and Hunt is a running back. Nebraska is also interested in Anthony Gilbert who is a defensive end from Lancaster."

Golston, who is traveling with Hurst right now, put Hurst on the phone to talk about the recruiting process and the visit that is coming up to Lincoln.

"I picked up an offer from Nebraska about two weeks ago. Nebraska likes me as a cornerback. Everyone is recruiting me as a cornerback."

Hurst is a taller cornerback, 6-foot-0, and has that height advantage that wide receivers sometimes enjoy on defensive backs on a little more level plane with him.

"I think that I cover pretty well. I think that I am good in man to man coverage. I think I had about 50 tackles, 20 pass break ups, one blocked kick and a forced fumble. I was second team all-district."

Hurst is up to 13 offers right now. "I have offers from Iowa, Wake Forest, Utah, Michigan, Arizona, Nebraska, SMU, Colorado State, Kansas, Kansas State, TCU, Wisconsin and Baylor."

With double-digit offers in hand, Hurst is in the middle of evaluating all of the schools that he has offered. He says that he has to take a look at all the schools before narrowing his list.

"I have been doing a lot of research on these schools right now. I am just evaluating everyone right now. I would say that I am still open."

When Hurst makes these trips and does his research he is looking first at the academics. "I want to see if they have my major. Also, if I wasn't playing football would I just go to school there? Would it be like home?"

When Hurst makes the trip to Nebraska with his team mates and coach, after seeing Arizona, he has some things that he would like to take a look at.

"I am interested in looking at the facilities. I would also like to get to know the coaches pretty well. I would like to get to meet some of the players too. I want a big tour of the campus and the community."

Hurst has quite a few offers, but he says that everyone is still in it and said that he is still interested in Nebraska. "I would say that I am pretty high on Nebraska right now. I want to see how well I like it on Thursday."
