5-star OL Sarell Locking In More Visits

Sep. 7 -- Graham (Wash.) Kapowsin five-star offensive lineman Foster Sarell has locked in a few more official visits and has two schools in contention for the last trip...

Graham (Wash.) Kapowsin five-star offensive tackle Foster Sarell was the highest profile visitor on a stacked list at Nebraska last weekend.

The No. 2 player in the country, Sarell used the first weekend he could take visits to trip to Lincoln.

And the trip was a good one for Sarell and his family.

"It was a fantastic weekend," said his mother, Pam.

The biggest impression was left by the Husker fans.

"The Nebraska fans are crazy for their football," said Pam Sarell.  "I was shocked to hear them calling Foster by name and saying 'come to Nebraska! Give us a chance!' It was awesome to feel that love."

Having checked out a few other schools for unofficials, Sarell said Nebraska was peerless on game day.

"Foster said the fan base and game day atmosphere was unlike anything he's seen," said Pam Sarell.

The facilities also caught their eye.

"The facilities were outstanding," said Pam Sarell.

And the Husker coaching staff, namely head coach Mike Riley and offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh, who've been recruiting him since they were at Oregon State, continue to impress Sarell and his family.

"I have a lot of respect for Coach Cav and Coach Riley and the other coaches were super," said Pam Sarell.

Sarell was hosted on his visit by freshman offensive lineman John Raridon.

The next official visit for Sarell will be to Notre Dame in mid-October when the Irish host Stanford and he'll visit the Cardinal in January for his official visit and will be on The Farm unofficially when the Cardinal host USC on September 17.

Sarell will also take an official visit to hometown Washington, though that date hasn't been set yet. 

And Sarell will officially visit Alabama on Thanksgiving weekend when the Tide host Auburn.

"Alabama is set for November 26th unless he is in the playoffs and he has a game himself," said Pam Sarell.

That would leave Michigan and UCLA on the outside looking in, with Notre Dame, Stanford and Washington always getting visits, and Nebraska and Alabama the two that rounded out the top five, though unofficial visits aren't completely out of the question for Sarell.

Graham-Kapowsin rolled in their opener last weekend and face University Place (Wash.) Curtis this Friday.
