Big Red Report: OK, so you got your chance to show the coaches at Nebraska what you could do. How do you think it went?
Kyrian Batiste: It went good, the coaches really liked me. They said I was strong, was quick off the ball and very physical.
BRR: What coaches did you get a chance to talk to while you were there?
KB: I got a chance to talk to the Head Coach as well as the Defensive Coordinator (Carl Pelini) and Coach J.P.
KB: That was a battle. We were stalemating a lot. The guy knows how to counter everything you do. He can read you really well. He's got quick feet, so what I was doing was just speed rushing him, trying to stay low and explode through him if I could.
BRR: I noticed in some camps we covered that during these one-on-ones, players are kind of on their own to get in line and wait their turn. But I notice that some players don't like waiting. They want to go at it, over and over again. Was that you this camp?
KB: Oh yeah. I was first in line every single time. I wanted to go at Ryne every single time. I wanted to beat him so bad, but we kept stalemating. The guy is good. But if nobody was going to tell me to go the back of the line, I wasn't. I wanted to go again.
BRR: You said the coaches liked you. Any other feedback you get from them as far as what you did and how you did it?
KB: Coach told my dad they really liked me. They like how physical I am. You can tell that's one thing they care about a lot – just being physical and fundamentally sound.
BRR: What kind of feel did you get from them as far as an offer potentially coming?
KB: It felt good. I think I showed them what I could do. They have another camp, but they said they would let me know after both camps and after they look at film on everyone. I think they are close to offering.
BRR: What would you do if they offered you?
KB: I don't know what I would do. I'd be exciting, I know that. I'd probably commit. Honestly, I don't know, but it would be exciting.
BRR: You had a chance to tour the place. What did you think?
KB: Everyone is just nice there. Everyone. The campus is beautiful and they are really serious about their religion there. I like that, and my parents like that a lot too.
BRR: What's left for you over the Summer that you know of?
KB: No, I saw him, but he was in study hall. So, he couldn't really talk that much. But I saw him.
BRR: Anything else stand out about your experience at Nebraska?
KB: I just like the fact that the coaches are focused on you. They care about the little things, about being sound fundamentally and working on the basics. I know they liked how physical I was, but being sound is something that's really important to me. I like that it's important to them.
