I was here a long time ago to share an interview with Fabian Washington. I'm currently a high school senior and deciding on college, and I hope some of you remember me. I'm here to share an interview with former Big-12 DL of the Year, First-Team All-Big 12, and first round pick, Adam Carriker. I think he was one of my best interviews recently. We talked about everything from Suh, hazing, Bill Callahan, Star Wars, WWE, recruiting, Husker football, Rams, Redskins, and more.
Here is the link to the FULL interview, http://prointerviews.org/AdamCarriker! If you want to read a teaser, take the jump!
Strauss : While you were at Nebraska Ndamukong Suh was there, you were a first round pick then he was a first round pick. What was he like when you saw him at Nebraska and what you see him as now a bit too?
Carriker : When I was there he was there two years. One year was his redshirt freshman year, so he was a young guy. I don’t believe he played a ton those two years. I don’t remember but I don’t think he did because he was a young guy. I remember he was really talented and he was the only other guy on the team who could challenge me in the weight room and for a freshman that was ridiculous he was even close to me. I just remember he was really talented. He just needed a chance to show what he could do.
Strauss : Did you haze him (Ndamukong Suh) at all?
Carriker : When I first got to Nebraska, hazing was ridiculous. It was actually beyond ridiculous, but when Callahan got there, he pretty much put an ix-nay on it. He pretty much took it out completely. The only thing we were allowed to do was give them funny haircuts in camp. I thought he eliminated too much you’ve got be able to do some things with the guys, but you know some things were just too over the top when I got there. Other than haircuts, we couldn’t do a whole lot because Callahan didn’t approve of that stuff so we didn’t do too much.
