Over the course of fall camp, HuskersIllustrated.com will go up close with each of the newcomers in Nebraska's class of 2007.

Today we caught up with former four-star and Rivals20 offensive lineman Jaivorio Burkes and got his early perspectives and thoughts about life in Lincoln. Read what he had to say about what he's learned so far through fall camp, what he feels like he's done well at, and how he's adjusting to the next level here.
