Beau Sandland, one of the top junior college tight ends in the country, had an official visit to Nebraska this weekend.
Head coach Bo Pelini and Co. must have made quite an impression.
"You know, this is my first visit. I knew I'd come out here and I'd fall in love with the place," Sandland told Robin Washut of HuskerOnline.com. I knew with the facilities and the people here, I knew I'd love it. I don't want to make any rash decisions based on emotion. I knew I wasn't going to commit when I was out here.
"Like I said, I'll go home and talk to my coaches and my family. I've got 18 offers, so I don't want to rush anything. I'm going to look at other schools, but the visit couldn't have gone any better."
The 6-5, 250-pound Pierce College (Woodland Hills, CA) product holds offers from major programs such as Oklahoma, Georgia, Miami, Florida and LSU. But the Cornhuskers sit atop the list of the Class of 2013 star.
"I always knew from the get-go that they'd be at the top, and this just solidified that," Sandland said. "I can definitely say they're going to be in it for the long haul. When I boil it down to three or five schools, there's no doubt that Nebraska is going to be in there."
The Huskers need to find replacements at the tight end position once Ben Cotton and Kyler Reed graduate after this season, so getting a commitment from Sandland would be a real coup.
