Any word on how he liked it??????

He gave it a 10. He was blown away by the facilities (said he can't imagine any school having as good of facilities) and the game-day atmosphere. Couldn't believe how the fans were still in the streets four hours after the game. Said the coaches were very accomodating and cool. Most importantly, he said his parents loved it as well.

 

 

He's not going to commit until he takes his other visits to Oregon, BYU, and Cal.

 

 

 

We'll see if they come close to meeting the Nebraska experience.

I think the only team that could offer any sort of competition, as far as athletic facilities and atmosphere, is Oregon. Phil Knight has put so much money into that university and their stadium sells out every game for the most part. I think nothing compares to Lincoln, but I'm a little biased. ;)

are they recruiting him for rb or safety?

Good quesiton. Going after Bo Williams, who is definitely an RB, I would think Roy might not be a RB at NU. But who knows. Guys get's moved around all the time.

Actually I have heard a lot more about Helu than I have Mendoza. I have heard he has looked pretty good in the short amount of time they have been practicing.

just a question, is he the first polynesian running back at NU. He looked pretty good this year and him and Castille will hopefully be a good 1-2 punch in the future.
