The Cornhusker State’s No. 1 player is staying home. More importantly, he’ll be reunited with his big brother.

Four-star offensive guard D.J. Foster (Lincoln, Neb./Southeast) verbally committed to Nebraska Saturday evening, ending all speculation of the state’s top-ranked player choosing an out-of-state school. Foster chose Nebraska over UCLA, Georgia and Florida.

Foster, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound guard, is Nebraska’s eighth commit, and he joins high school teammate Luke Gifford, a safety, in the Huskers’ 2014 class. Additionally, Foster will be teammates with his brother, Trey Foster, who was a redshirt freshman tight end for Nebraska during the 2012 season.

What led to his commitment?
