Nebraska will resume spring practice this week and Hail Varsity has already learned of one important unofficial visitor coming to a practice. On Tuesday, March 26, 4-star (HV Rating: 92.7) wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad III will visit Lincoln for the day. The pass-catcher—who stands at 6-foot and 180-pounds—will make the trip with his father. His dad is former Panthers and Bears wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad.
I caught up with Muhammad III before the trip to get his thoughts on Nebraska’s offense, what he is looking forward to on his visit and more.
Here is the full Q&A from our conversation:
How long have you been in contact with the staff at Nebraska?
“I’ve been talking to Coach [Scott] Frost for quite a while now. He offered me from UCF when he made that move. So, I guess it’s been since my sophomore year.”
How would you describe the relationship that you have with Frost?
“It’s pretty strong. We text back and forth pretty frequently. I’m just excited to get up there and put a name to the face.”
What are some things you are looking forward on the visit?
“I want to see the campus life. Also, how the guys get along on the team, the facilities and little things like that.”
What are your thoughts about Nebraska’s offensive style?
“I like how much they throw the ball. Plus, how quick their offense is. I was on an Ohio State visit during the season when they played Nebraska. I liked how quick they got the ball in the hands of their playmakers. They just got a new pickup, Wandale Robinson. I like how elusive he is and I’ve been watching his game.”
Have you taken any other visits this spring?
“No, not this spring.”
What other schools are you looking at visiting?
“I’m visiting Kentucky, Texas A&M, Oregon, Tennessee, plus UNC and NC State. Michigan State as well.”
What are some things that are most important to you in a future school?
“A receivers coach that really wants [to] lay it all on the table in front of me to get me to the next level. Obviously, I don’t want to be promised anything. I want a coach that’s always about improvement. I want a family vibe. I’m going to be there the next three or four years so I don’t want to be stranded somewhere that doesn’t feel like home.”
Have you talked much to offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Troy Walters? How is that relationship?
“Yes, I have, pretty frequently. I can’t really remember [how he knows] my pops but I think they are pretty familiar with each other. Our relationship is really cool. He’s a down to earth guy. I like Coach Walters a lot.”
How much have you leaned on your dad through the process and how has he helped you?
“I get a lot of questions about if he is steering my recruitment. Really, he just wants what is best for me. He says no matter what anybody else thinks, this is your life and your process. It’s your future so do what’s best for you. Obviously, he’s been through the same situation so that helps. There are pros and cons to the process itself. I’m just soaking things up from him because he’s been there and done that plus played with the best of the best.”
