Moved up his list

A visitor that surfaced late this week was Mason Fuller from Chicago (Ill.) Urban Prep Charter Academy. Fuller had an offer from Illinois, but from the conversation on Friday it was clear that on his trip to Nebraska he wanted to get an offer from Nebraska. What did Fuller think about the game, the weekend, meeting his favorite college football player and did he get that offer?

There were plenty of committed and uncommitted players in Lincoln this weekend for the spring game. One of the uncommitted players was Mason Fuller. Fuller is a 6-foot-4 and 280-pound defensive tackle from Chicago (Ill.) Urban Prep Charter Academy.

"It was great," Fuller said. "It was just a great presentation of the spring game. Their fans really love their team. I can't imagine what it's like for a real game."

There were definitely some things that stood out to Fuller about Nebraska. He loved how the defensive plays and he really liked the facilities at Nebraska.

"I really liked their defense, locker room, weight room and the players' lounges that they have around their facility. It was all really nice."

Fuller had never been to Nebraska before, but he had expectations. Nebraska met or exceeded all of his expectations. "On a scale of one to ten, I would give Nebraska a "10". It was that good. It was great."

One thing that Fuller wanted to talk to Nebraska about was getting an offer. He got good news in that department and he ran into his favorite college football player that gave him some words of encouragement.

"I spoke to Coach Marvin Sanders. He said that they are going to offer me, but they just wanted to see a little more film on me. I really liked hearing that.

"I really like Nebraska. They have my major there and I got a chance to meet Ndamukong Suh this weekend. I spoke to him a little bit this weekend.

"I flat out told him that I wanted to be like him and he told me to be better than him. He said that he could see it in me. That was really cool. I also spoke to Coach Bo Pelini."

Fuller admitted that Nebraska was on his top five list, but didn't say where on Friday. Today he says that Nebraska is number one with a bullet after his spring game experience.

"Nebraska has really moved up on my list. Nebraska is number one on my list. The Huskers really impressed me and they send me a lot of letters."
