Huskers impress Boyd

Huskers impress Boyd

It was a solid defensive effort by the Nebraska defense on Saturday night against one of the top offenses in the conference and in the nation. Jamone Boyd from Lee's Summit (Mo.) West said he thought he would be a good fit for Nebraska's defense.

Jamone Boyd was one of the uncommitted prospects that was in Lincoln this past weekend. The 6-foot-4 and 245-pound Boyd from Lee's Summit (Mo.) West got up there a few hours before the game on Saturday and had to leave early Sunday because his team is in the playoffs.

"Went up to the game on Saturday in Lincoln," Boyd said. "We got into town that afternoon around 3:00. We went to the hotel, hung out, went over to the facility, met the coaches, ate and then went down to the field for the pre-game."

Before the game all of the recruits make their way back to the locker room and then come out of the tunnel before the team. The recruit version of the tunnel walk has gotten a lot of good reviews from the recruits this weekend because the fans typically know who all of the recruits are.

"I thought that the tunnel walk was nice. The fans knew who all of the recruits were. I signed a few autographs. The tunnel walk for the players was good and the crowd was really loud."

The Nebraska defense was stout on Saturday night. It's clear that Nebraska is looking for some immediate help to help back-fill for three, senior defensive ends who Nebraska loses to graduation.

"Everybody in the state loves the team and really loves the defense. After watching them I think that I am a good fit for their defense, oh yeah."

There wasn't a lot that Boyd had a chance to do or see on Sunday because he had to get back. He gave the visit a very high mark and says that the fans were the biggest reason for the high grade on the visit.

"We left pretty early on Sunday morning because I had practice. We were back in the car about 9:00. The visit was a "9". I really liked the fans. I think that there was over 86,000 fans there for the game. There really wasn't anything I didn't like."

Nebraska was lucky to get Boyd up when they could because it seems that he's back onto thinking about his team and a run at the state title. Boyd doesn't have any other visits set up and says that Nebraska is definitely on his list, but he isn't currently favoring any teams at the moment.

"I don't have any other visits coming up right now. I am taking it slow right now and trying to take it all in. Nebraska is definitely on my list of top schools. They are all equal."
