The reporter from ESPN2 caught Salt Lake City (Utah) Highlands defensive tackle Haloti Ngata off guard on the sidelines on Saturday at the U.S. Army All-America Bowl. It was the only time he slipped up all weekend long.
Ngata was asked about his commitment to Nebraska and what he thought about the Huskers' loss in the national championship game.
The only problem was that Ngata isn't committed to Nebraska anymore, so he really didn't know what to say at that point.
"They caught me off guard," Ngata said. "I tried to tell them that I'm not committed, but it just didn't come out right."
So for the record once and for all, does Ngata consider himself committed to the Huskers?
"No," Ngata said on Saturday after the game in San Antonio, Texas.
"I'm probably leaning toward Oregon right now. I loved it up there on my official visit (Dec. 14). The city is great, and the team is one of the best in the nation."
Ngata went on to say that after Oregon it's a tight race for the No. 2 spot on his list between Nebraska and BYU.
"I'm supposed to go to BYU next weekend," Ngata said. "But I don't know. There's a lot of pressure on me, and I think I might want to just get this over with and commit to Oregon.
"I'll go home and do some thinking."
