WR talks Nebraska visit, ready for TTU
By Damon Sayles
Entering the weekend, three-star wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo (Cedar Hill, Texas/Cedar Hill) had only flown on an airplane twice. His weekend official visit to Nebraska was his first time flying alone. The first two times, he flew with his parents to New York.
“I didn’t know what I was doing,” he said. “I was texting on my phone right before we were supposed to leave, and everybody was looking at me.”
The weekend flight ended up being one of the many highlights of a productive visit to Lincoln, Neb. Adeboyejo gave Nebraska high marks and said the visit made him look at the program and campus completely different from what he originally had.
“I was expecting a boring town, just a town with a college and nothing much to do,” Adeboyejo said, “but I had a lot of fun out there. Everybody out there is real big on football. That’s a plus.”
Adeboyejo, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver who recently decommitted from Texas A&M, enjoyed the camaraderie of the coaches and players and the overall atmosphere of the campus and the city of Lincoln. Quarterback Tommy Armstrong was his player host.
“It really felt like family out there,” Adeboyejo said. “All the coaches were real cool, and all the players were real cool. I had a chance to hang out with [receivers] Kenny Bell and Quincy Enunwa. I felt like I bonded with everybody.”
Adeboyejo’s next visit will come this week, as he will visit Texas Tech. He went to Lubbock, Texas, for Texas Tech’s junior day last year, but he’s looking forward to speaking with the Red Raiders’ coaching staff, particularly new head coach -- former Texas A&M offensive coordinator -- Kliff Kingsbury.
“I’m excited to see what he plans on doing with the program,” Adeboyejo said of Kingsbury. “I talked to him last week on the phone, but he really wanted to just show me everything when I got on the campus.”
