Fisher taking visits

Top prospects from around the country made their way to Lincoln last weekend to get a look at the Huskers annual Red and White spring game, but not all the talent on hand was from out of state. Cole Fisher from Millard North high school in Nebraska was also in attendance. He talks about the visit and where his recruitment stands at this point, in this update with Big Red Report.

Nebraska hosted players from all across the nation for their spring game last Saturday. For most of the recruits in the stadium, this was their first experience at a Nebraska spring game, but for Cole Fisher it was a familiar scene.

"I've been to a couple spring games in Lincoln, so I knew what to expect. You know the stadium is going to be packed, and the fans are going to be everywhere. It's not as loud or intense as a regular game, but it's always a fun time."

What did you do on Saturday before the game?

"We pretty much went on all the tours around campus, it was kind of like a junior day or something. Then all the recruits ate together for a little while, then we got to hear from coach Pelini for a little bit.

"I spoke to the other coaches too, and then we went up in the stadium and enjoyed the game."

What did you focus on during the game?

"The Nebraska coaches have talked about using me at that outside linebacker spot, so I watched that a lot. I also watched my brother for most of the time, he has put on some good weight this offseason, so it should help him on the field this year."

Did the Nebraska coaches mention anything more about an offer?

"When I was down there for the junior day I got to talk to coach Pelini about it. He didn't really talk much about an offer, he was just asking me how my knee was, just seeing if my recovery was on track.

"He talked a little about where he thought I could play. He was saying he could see me at an outside linebacker, or maybe even at safety.

"But at the spring game we didn't talk about offers or anything."

How is the knee, are you getting close to 100%?

"Yeah, it's getting a lot better actually. I tore my ACL last year playing basketball, but it's getting better every day. I'll be back to normal before my football season starts, so that's the good news."

I know you have offers from Iowa and Kansas, have they been specific about what position they see you lining up at?

"Yeah, I talked to coach Ferentz about it when I visited Iowa earlier this year. Coach Ferentz and I sat down and talked one-on-one about it, and he sees me at outside linebacker.

"I'm not real sure on Kansas yet, but I'll be heading over there for a visit real soon. We'll probably talk about it then."

Cole has plans to attended the Kansas spring game this weekend, but is doubtful he will participate in any camps this summer until his knee heals, which doctors have told him would be in mid-July. Cole said he has no plans for an early commitment, preferring to wait things out until closer to signing day.

Big Red Report will continue to keep tabs on the recruitment of Cole Fisher, and bring you any pertinent details as they become available.
