Abu Lamin, a JUCO defensive tackle prospect the Huskers would badly like add to their commit list, is in town and tweeting about it.

Judging by his Twitter account, Lamin seems to be having a pretty good visit.

Someone asked him on Twitter last night how he'd rate his time in Lincoln. "Honestly a big 10..." came the response.

Husker coaches took him to the top of the Memorial Stadium.

"This is one of the best stadiums I've seen! PERIOD!" Lamin tweeted, posting a picture of the field.

He also tweeted out the picture seen above, standing arm-in-arm with assistants Rick Kaczenski, John Papuchis and John Garrison at the top of the new East Stadium addition, wearing their construction hats.

He's certainly a recruit to put the hard hat on for. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Lamin is rated a four-star prospect. He also comes from the same Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College where Nebraska has plucked the likes of Lavonte David, Brandon Kinnie, Yoshi Hardrick and Stanley Jean-Baptiste in recent years.

Now, Fort Scott has a different coach than it had when Nebraska took that foursome. Jeff Sims is now an associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for Carl Pelini at Florida Atlantic.

But it was a real good sign for Nebraska that Lamin decided to visit this weekend considering he was thinking about taking another trip to Auburn, which he'd already seen.

According to HuskerOnline.com, Lamin said he made up his mind to visit Nebraska this week after 1 a.m. one day this week after some long conversations with Papuchis and Kaczenski.

"I've talked to head coach Bo Pelini, defensive coordinator Coach Papuchis, and d-line Coach Rick," Lamin told the website. "I talk to Coach Rick a lot and I relate to him. So it was that I just had to give Nebraska a chance."

It's Nebraska and a chunk of the SEC on this one.

Lamin has recently said his top six include, Nebraska, South Carolina, Auburn, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee.

We'll see how it finishes, but getting a guy to the top of your stadium is a good start.

As Husker assistant offensive line coach John Garrison tweeted: "Big line for our D-line future!!!"
