The huge recruiting weekend at Nebraska just got even bigger – even thought it wasn’t from a player that took an official visit to Lincoln.
Kilgore (Texas) Junior College three-star defensive tackle Byron Smith said he’s finished with the recruiting process and is going to stick with his original commitment to the Huskers. He thought that was going to be his plan last week after meeting new defensive line coach John Blake, but he wasn’t sure at first. Then after thinking about it more and more he decided not to take a visit to Texas A&M and is sticking with the Huskers.
“I didn’t go to Texas A&M,” Smith, who is 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds, said. “I’m going to go ahead and be a Nebraska Cornhusker. I just think that coach Callahan is going to turn things around and I want to be part of a good thing.”
Smith said he’s not informed Arizona coach Mike Stoops of his decision to stick with Nebraska. He visited UofA back on January 16. He originally visited Nebraska on November 14 and committed that weekend.
“I’m excited about it,” Smith said. “It’s a good decision for me.”
