Kerr sets Nebraska visit

The way that Nebraska had recruited J.T. Kerr up to his visit showed their interest. After the visit to Lincoln, Kerr is certain that Nebraska is a place that he can see himself as a player and a student for the next four to five years. Now, Husker fans wait and see if they can land one of the best tight ends in all of California.

Seasons are starting and for J.T. Kerr this season is like no other. His senior year will be spent at a different school and for a team that has state championship aspirations.

"We have a scrimmage on Friday," Kerr said. "This will be our first one and I am just really excited. I think that we have a lot of fire in us.

"I think that our team is ready to go. I am excited about the offense. I am just excited about marching on the field and getting that first touchdown on that first drive."

Kerr doesn't want to aim for the stars and hit the moon. He knows that with great achievement will require some lofty goals. That is the only way that you will ever get to the top.

"Our expectations are high for us. I am planning on us going as far as we can in the playoffs; possibly to even play for that state championship. You have to set them high."

Recruiting has been about the same since returning from an unofficial visit from Lincoln earlier in the month. There are a lot of teams waiting to see how he performs this season.

"The same stuff is just kind of going on since getting back from Nebraska. A lot of other schools are just waiting to see my first few games this season."

While Kerr waits on some to see what he will do in a passing offense it means a lot to him that Nebraska didn't have to wait. The Huskers saw what might be without him catching a pass his senior year.

"It means a lot. It's comforting and as well I just appreciated it so much that they would extend that to me after my junior season and just seeing me this summer."

Kerr just recently set up one official visit and is eyeing four other official visits, depending on the offers, to four PAC 10 schools.

"I am probably going to take a visit to UCLA, Oregon, Nebraska, probably to Arizona and possibly Arizona State. My dad just set up the visit to Nebraska on September 12."

The Nebraska official visit follows an unofficial earlier this summer. Kerr would like to see the game atmosphere that he hears about so much and would also like to talk to some of the players.

"I am really excited to see how the fans are at their games. That's all I ever hear about; they are crazy, intense and really just true to their team. I want to see how everything in the state and maybe mingle with the players a little bit."

The Nebraska visit is the only one that Kerr has set. After that, he is in a holding pattern to see what other schools come up with an offer for him.

"I haven't set up any other visits yet. I am just going to play it by ear. I am planning on getting more offers after the first couple of games, so I will set some late ones up."

While some Husker fans might be concerned about Kerr looking for some other offers he says that Nebraska is still on top. He feels the Husker fans should feel excited about the possibility of him becoming a Husker.

"They should be fired up. Nebraska is definitely my top school, but I just want to keep my options open. I transferred schools last year and I haven't even set foot on the field yet to see what I could do.

"Nebraska is definitely still my top school. I had an amazing trip out there to Lincoln. I think about them all the time."
