Huskers grab Texas running back

Houston (Texas) Spring Woods all-purpose back Marcus Mendoza apparently didn't want to wait much longer to make his decision. So he went ahead and made it Monday evening.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder was the recipient of a visit from Nebraska running backs coach Randy Jordan today and that conversation helped make up his mind.
"Yeah, I just committed to Nebraska today," Mendoza said. "I just felt real comfortable there. I really liked the school and they were talking to me about how they really wanted me.

"They only have a few scholarships left and there was one more spot there for me, I wanted to take it. I just felt comfortable, so I did it."
Mendoza had an official visit scheduled for Kansas State in December, but will more than likely "not take any more visits."
He called coach Jordan after he left to tell him about his decision.
"I haven't called the head coach, coach (Bill) Callahan yet, but I will here in a little while," Mendoza said. "Coach Jordan was excited about it."
Mendoza previously Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and TCU along with Nebraska.
