Signed and sealed: Nebraska Cornhuskers
By Adam Rittenberg
New Big Ten member Nebraska has announced its 2011 recruiting class, which includes 20 players and will be ranked among the nation's top 15 by ESPN Recruiting.
The class includes 18 incoming freshmen and two junior college players. Nebraska is bringing in five recruits from Texas and four from within the state. There are 12 offensive recruits, seven defensive recruits and one specialist.
Here's the breakdown by position:
A few notes:
- Nebraska's class includes four ESPNU 150 commits: running back Aaron Green, quarterback Jamal Turner, cornerback Charles Jackson and quarterback Bubba Starling.
- The Huskers also announced that they've secured commitments from 15 future walk-ons. NCAA rules permit them to announce 11 of these players Wednesday. Nine of those announced hail from Nebraska.
- The Huskers have signed five players from Texas in each of the last two seasons. It'll be interesting to see if they can maintain their Texas pipeline as a Big Ten member.
