Recruiting Progress Continues as Two More Commit
Nebraska obtained commitments from two more recruits yesterday. Omaha North guard prospect Michael Decker came aboard. The 6'4" 288-pounder became the second offensive lineman to commit for the class of 2015. He was joined by Omaha Central defensive end Daishon Neal who's listed as 6'7" and 240 lbs. Neal is the first end and the third defensive lineman in the class.
The two prospects bring NU's total 2015 class to 9 commitments. Decker's commitment was aided by praise for the Husker program from recent transfer Alex Lewis. Decker so far had offers from Kansas State and Wyoming. Neal had an offer from Ohio.
Neither player was born in the Cornhusker state. Each arrived later so the recruiting effort was similar to that of any other national recruit. Both address areas of need for the class of 2015. The Huskers have been so thin at defensive end that they've had to change the nature of the Spring Game so that they don't need to field two defenses. They also need to add help on the offensive line with three players set to graduate after this season and six more after next season.
Ten months still remain until signing day, but as the saying goes you never have to recover from a good start. The nine commits to date are the most we've ever seen at Nebraska this far out. Worthy in-state recruits have always been the lifeblood of the program. The vaunted pipeline was built with Zach Weigert, Rob Zatechka, and Joel Wilks and the end position made outstanding with players like Zach Potter, Aaron Wills, Chad and Chris Kelsay and Jay Moore.
Things continue to look bright on the recruiting trail.
