Nebraska is off to a great start in this year's recruiting race and added a significant piece to the puzzle by landing Moreno Valley (Calif.) Canyon Springs offensive lineman Rodney Picou.
Picou, 6-4, 299 pounds was the top lineman at the Nike Camp in San Diego on either side of the ball. He clocked a 5.19 in the 40, did 22 reps on the bench and dominated the position and one on one drills as well.
"He has started every game for us since his sophomore year," Canyon Springs head coach Shane Prosser said. "When I first saw him play, I knew right away that by the time he was a senior, Rodney would be one of the top prospects in the nation. You have to see him play every day to understand just how good he is. He started off at tackle for us but could also play guard in college. He's just an incredible player and a great kid as well."
Prosser was a first team all-state Underclass selection and also earned Student Sports Junior All-American honors a year ago.
“I committed yesterday to Coach (Bill) Busch,” Picou told Duane Rossiter of HuskersIllustrated.com. "I like the coaching staff…I just like Nebraska and they take care of everybody down there. I liked them at the camp - the one I went with my two teammates. I met all of the coaches and that was the main reason I committed- the great coaching staff and how well I was treated.”
Picou said he's a solid commitment to the Huskers and doesn't plan to take any other official visits except the one to Nebraska.
