Unusual for this staff to push a kid that hard....not our montra and it has worked the way we do it....however, with a small class and spots filling up they have other options if he doesn't decide soon....he has said the Huskers are #1 all along but has drug the process out....plans to visit FL next....sounds like, as I have heard, Curry will commit if a slot is open next weekend and the visit goes as hoped....so VV needs to pee or get off the pot....
Although I could see a scenerio where we take both too....
But the Huskers want an answer now that Texas prospect Aaron Curry visits on Jan. 20.
“Nebraska coaches are saying that they are taking only one more defensive lineman and they really want it to be me,” Valentine said. “So they really want me to commit if I feel like Nebraska is the right place for me.”
That’s a rare – and probably welcome – bit of pressure from Husker coaches. But Valentine still plans on visiting Florida and home-state Illinois, where new head coach Tim Beckman dearly wants to land the 6-foot-4, 313-pounder.
“It would be tough for me to not go to Illinois,” he said. “I think about that a lot. But I know it’s my opportunity but I need to make a decision that I won’t regret, so I can’t let anyone pressure me.”
