Carter gives NU a "10"

The defensive end position is key for the Nebraska recruiting class for 2010. The Huskers lose two scholarship defensive ends this year and there is a need to at least bring in one and possibly two with the late loss last year of a defensive end recruit to another school. The Huskers hosted a highly recruited, pass-rushing specialist from Illinois this weekend and made quite the impression.

It was a long weekend for Chance Carter of Wilmette (Ill.) Loyola Academy and it's not over yet. Carter is still traveling home from Nebraska after seeing the spring game on Saturday and taking an unofficial visit.

"I am good," Carter said. "I didn't make it back yet. I am still at the airport. The spring game was good. I liked the game. I really took great interest in the academic support staff when I met them."

The defense under Bo Pelini at Nebraska has been re-built with an emphasis up-front first. Carter is one of those types of players that it seems like Pelini and his staff is more interested in using along the defensive line.

"I thought that I could come in and really fit in. I thought that I could come in and make the others better along with me and take that next step forward bringing that program back to where it used to be."

In comparison to what Carter expected to see at Nebraska and what he did see the visit went as good as it could possibly go. Carter couldn't think of anything that could have been any better.

"It was a "10". I thought I was going to like it going in. After I got there, I liked it even more. Nothing really could have been better or different. I got all of my questions answered."

This might be the last trip for Carter as he was considering making a college choice in May. Nebraska was the third school he has seen already and doesn't have any other trips scheduled.

"I would like to make a decision in May sometime. I am not too sure what will happen. I don't have any other trips coming up and I have been to see Stanford and Notre Dame before seeing Nebraska."
