Kansas OL enjoys Nebraska camp

Nebraska was able to go into Overland Park (Kans.) St. Thomas Aquinas and get Kyler Reed last year. That was a big get for Nebraska and this year the Huskers are taking a look at another from St. Thomas Aquinas. This time it's an offensive lineman. This lineman was in Lincoln for the first session of the camp at Nebraska.

Another of the campers at Nebraska in the first session was 6-foot-6 and 287-pound offensive lineman, Jake Morin. Morin said that the visit went great.

"I really liked it," Morin said. "I really, really liked it. The facilities were awesome. The coaches were awesome. Everything was great."

For a lot of out of state folks, the first session of camps was the first time in Lincoln. Morin had been there before, but it was a couple of years ago.

"I had been to a game in Lincoln before. That was a couple of years ago. Coach Shawn Watson and Coach Barney Cotton are recruiting me and I really like both of them.

"They are really good coaches. They also seem to have a really good, family environment up there with all of their players and coaches. We got a chance to talk a lot."

Morin said that he thought that he did well at the camp. There was some getting used to it again, but Morin said that he should find something out about an hour by next week.

"I thought that I played pretty good. It was my first time in pads since last football season. It took some getting used to again.

"The coaches are saying that they are going to get together, go over recruiting and look at all of the players from camp. They will look at my film again.

"They also filmed the camp. They are going to call my high school coach either way. That meeting will take place next Wednesday."

At 6-foot-6 and 287-pounds, Morin was told that he could probably play a number of positions across the offensive line by Barney Cotton.

"Coach Cotton said that I could play pretty much any position on the line: right tackle, guard or even center."

The Huskers are competing with three offers already from the service academies. "I have three offers already. I have offers from Army, Air Force and Navy."

Nebraska is just the first camp for Morin, not the last. He goes to Ames this weekend and then there are three other camps/visits that he knows about.

"I go to Iowa State this Saturday. After that I will go to Wisconsin and Northwestern. I will go to Kansas State after that."
