Bonne Terre (Mo.) North County four-star linebacker Will Compton is a traveling man.
The 6-foot-2, 214-pound inside linebacker is currently making his way from Lincoln, Neb., to Iowa City, Iowa, for his second unofficial visit of the week. He's already been to places like Notre Dame and Missouri, so how did Nebraska compare to the others?
"I loved it," Compton, the nation's No. 13 inside linebacker and the No. 3 player in Missouri, said. "It was awesome."

Compton, who has offers from Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Northwestern and Wake Forest, said quite a few things stood out about his visit.
"I really liked all of their facilities," Compton said.
"I was just in awe as I was touring everywhere. What stood out to me was their indoor football facility and their stadium. You just knew they were top notch. Also things like their player's lounge and locker room were just awesome. But the biggest thing that surprised me was how great their academics were. They are one of the best academically sound schools in the country."
Compton said he also feels good about a chance to compete at Nebraska.
"I could have a great opportunity to compete for a starting spot because of everyone that is leaving," he said. Coach Cosgrove said I have a great chance to start at the Will position."
While Compton liked his time in Lincoln, he's not ready to claim a leader yet between the schools on his list.
"I will have a top five or six out around the beginning of July, but you can count on Nebraska being on it," he said. "I will be in Iowa Wednesday. Also Notre Dame will be letting me know about an offer situation again Saturday."
Compton had 71 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss and one interception as a junior. He also rushed for 455 yards and had 855 yards receiving.
