Busseys wanted Bo, but Riley impresses

Nebraska commit Kendall Bussey Jr., who has reportedly been wavering a bit since the firing of former coach Bo Pelini, received an in-home visit on Friday from new Husker coach Mike Riley, according to 247Sports.com.

The 2015 running back prospect came away impressed with Riley, his father told one recruiting site.

“Everything went terrific and he’s one of the nicest guy you can meet, wonderful guy and he has a great game plan,” Kendall Bussey Sr. told Huskers Illustrated's Mike Schaefer (subscription only). “He said he really likes Kendall a lot and that he’d be important for this class. The next step is to see who gets hired at the running back coach. The visit itself went excellent. Nebraska couldn’t have went wrong by keeping Bo Pelini, but if not that, then this guy seems to be very well liked. We’re sad to see Bo go, but if he had to be replaced then Nebraska made an excellent choice with coach Riley."

Bussey had a record-setting campaign during his senior season at New Orleans Isidore Newman (see his midseason highlights here), and though his father says he has not decommitted from Nebraska, the younger Bussey did post a message that he'd be "opening up" the recruiting process to other schools.

Riley, of course, has been visiting multiple 2015 recruits this week, looking to lock down their commitments to Nebraska.
