This spring, a number of recruits will come through Lincoln to check out spring practices leading up to the sold-out spring game. Wisconsin lineman Sean Timmis made the trip to Nebraska this week with his mom to see how the coaching staff interacts with the players on the practice field.

The lineman doesn’t hold an offer from Nebraska yet, but is hoping to get closer to one. I caught up with Timmis to get his thoughts on the visit, which schools are after him the hardest and more. As a note, we talked via Twitter direct message due to Timmis feeling under the weather.
Here is the full Q&A from our conversation:
What were your overall thoughts on the visit?
“It was a great atmosphere. The players were all very nice and the coaches definitely cared about them. The facilities were also just out of this world.”
Who came with you and what did they think?
“My mom did. She was really impressed with not only the coaches and how positive they were but the people of Nebraska and how nice they were.”
Did you get a chance to talk with offensive line coach Greg Austin? How’d that go?
“It went great. That was my first time meeting him in person. He had planned on coming to my school to watch me work out but another coach’s health issue forced him to rearrange his schedule. He said he likes my frame, athleticism, and physicality. He said he will be down to Milwaukee to see me workout this spring.”
What other schools are you in contact with the most?
“Iowa and Wisconsin, I’d say. They both have been down to my school the most and I’ve taken multiple visits to Wisconsin and I took a visit to Iowa this past Sunday.”
Do you plan on coming back to Nebraska for the spring game?
“No, just because I am busy that weekend and this visit worked out a lot better but I plan on coming back in the future.”
What would you say you are most looking for in a future school?
“Academics are very important to me. I want to go somewhere that will prepare me to go into the workforce right after college and I firmly believe Nebraska could do just that. I also want to have a strong bond with the coaching staff. Coaching has always been very important to me and I think it’s the recipe for a great team. Finally, I want a committed fan base that is dedicated to coming to every game and that loves the team they root for, win or lose.”
