Huskers Exceed All Expectations on Official Visit for Defensive Back Kayin Lee

June 05, 2022

The Huskers hosted a huge official group of official visitors over the June 3 weekend. The program had 13 different prospects in town and many of them are at the top of the board for the Huskers. Georgia 4-star defensive back Kayin Lee is one of the more sought-after prospects the Huskers hosted. It was a return trip for Lee who visited for the Red-White Spring Game.

“I loved everything about it,” Lee said. “It was a good experience.”

The visit exceeded all expectations for the defender. He was able to tour the Huskers’ facilities, hang out with current players and take in Friday Night Lights. The academic presentation was important for Lee, as well as being able to continue building relationships with Nebraska’s staff. He came away from the trip with an even better relationship with defensive backs coach Travis Fisher.

“Me and Coach Fish, that’s my guy,” Lee said. “We can talk about things. We’re really talking about things really off the field more than on the field. The field part we got down. So we are trying to build this relationship up before I would get out there.”

Lee was joined on the trip by his mom, dad and brother. Having the whole family out on the trip meant a lot for him. Being able to show them different parts of the country because of football made him feel good. His family loved what they saw and could see Lincoln being a good place for him to grow.

Another thing that made this trip special was being able to be on an official visit with two of his teammates. Wide receiver Barry Jackson Jr. and EDGE Adonijah Green were also on officials to Nebraska.

“It was pretty cool having all my teammates up there with me,” he said. “It made it much better. I feel like we could all go there and keep the same thing going.”

That same thing is winning. Cedar Grove High School has won four of the last five state championships in Georgia. Having that winning mentality is something that all colleges covet. Lee wouldn’t just bring the right mentality to whichever college he selects. He’s one of the top corners in the country if not the best according to his coach John Adams.

“I might be a little biased but I think he’s the best corner in the country,” Adams said. “Real physical kid that is fundamentally sound. He really wants to be the best. He goes out each and every day and works on that. So you got a guy I think wherever he goes is gonna come in and play early. He’ll have a real big impact on whatever squad he goes to. He can catch too and he’s gonna play some offense for us as well this year. Just one of those guys that can take away a side of the field and take away one of those star receivers.”

Now that his official to Nebraska is in the books Lee will take officials to Oregon and Ohio State this month. He intends to announce his commitment after the season and is scheduled to play in the All-American Bowl. Lee knows what he is looking for in a school as he takes his visits.

“Most definitely being able to play early,” Lee said. “Be able to build relationships with my coaches and teammates and be able to win games. I want to win the national championship, get my degree and go to the league.”
