"We are going up for Nebraska on July 31," Wheeler said. "Donovan Vestal and I are headed up there together. We are looking forward to it."
Wheeler wants to get a better idea what Nebraska is all about, particularly getting to know the coaching staff personally. He also wants to get a look around at what the coaches have told him all about.
"I really want to get to know their coaches better. I am looking forward to seeing the facilities that I hear so much about, the academic support, the town and campus."
The offer to Wheeler is significant to him. It was one of the first and since the offer the Nebraska staff has stayed in touch with him. More than that, he knows the potential of being a DT at Nebraska.
"They have been telling me about the defensive tackle that they have that is going to get drafted. They say that I have the body frame that I can participate early."
