The Huskers hosted their first night game of the 2019 season on Saturday. They took full advantage of having the 7 p.m. kickoff to get as many visitors on campus as they could. Six official visitors were in town, plus several other 2020 and 2021 targets. One of those prospects was 2020 Kansas lineman Aaron Kurth.

The Colby High School standout stands at 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds. I was able to catch up with him on the drive back home to get his thoughts on the visit.
Here is the full Q&A:
What did you think of the trip to Lincoln today?
“I loved it. I’ve been a Nebraska fan my whole life. To be invited to a game, that was just amazing. The atmosphere was just absolutely amazing. I loved it and I’m glad I got to make the trip to Nebraska this weekend.”
How is the relationship building with the coaching staff?
“The talks have been great. The relationship is amazing. They are always checking in on me to see how everything is going. They are always saying good luck before game day so it’s been an amazing relationship.”
What position have they talked to you about? You play both sides of the ball now, right?
“They are talking to me about offensive line. Yes, I play left tackle and then I play defensive end.”
What have the conversations been like about an offer?
“We haven’t really talked about that yet.”
What are the top things you are looking for in a school?
“I’m looking for a place that will help me [be] the best in the classroom and that has the career that I want to go into. I’m just looking for an all-around amazing atmosphere everywhere you go on campus. That’s what I’m looking for.”
What were the most memorable parts of the trip?
“Getting to go into the locker room before the game and just feeling the electricity in the atmosphere.”
