Huskers Latest Recruit Will Enroll Early
Nebraska added its eleventh commitment for the recruiting class of 2015 in safety Aaron Williams. The 5'11", 183-pound Georgian is set to graduate in the fall and plans to enroll at NU in January. Hi early arrival could give him a leg up on classmates Eric Lee and Avery Anderson, who are also defensive backs in the upcoming class. The latter pair are four-star commits while Williams is a three-star prospect.
The Huskers will say goodbye to safety Corey Cooper and corner Josh Mitchell after the 2014 season and already lost Harvey Jackson to a transfer. There are four scholarship juniors at defensive back this season which means any incoming player that redshirts or plays in a reserve role in 2015 will find ample room to compete for playing time early in their career.
Safety is one of those positions that's played between the ears as much as it is between the hashes. An extra spring of preparation can only help Williams learn the responsibilities of the position.
The addition keeps Nebraska in the top 10 of Rivals recruiting rankings for the 2015 cycle just ahead of national champion Florida State. Only Penn State among Big Ten teams ranks higher. That's sure to change, but Husker fans can be pleased for the time being. As the saying goes, you never have to recover from a good start.
