Dashon Hunt has been committed to UCLA since August before the new coaching staff arrived for the Bruins but that won't stop other programs from getting involved through the recruiting process.
The four-star cornerback from Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake landed an offer from Nebraska on Monday and he's definitely interested in learning more about the Big Ten program.
"They're a great school," Hunt said.
"They have a phenomenal football program. I don't know too much about them but I will read about them and learn more about them."
Hunt, rated No. 58 in the new Rivals.com rankings for the 2013 class, committed to the Bruins when Rich Neuheisel was still the coach.
Since coach Jim Mora took over, Hunt has not visited with UCLA but he is trying with his coach at Westlake, Jim Benkert, to schedule a time to meet the new coaches.
Hunt, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound prospect, is trying to visit with the UCLA coaches as soon as possible.
Washington has also offered Hunt and the Westlake standout is hearing from many other Pac-12 programs.
In his junior season, Hunt finished with 63 tackles and six interceptions. He also rushed for 1,274 yards and 18 touchdowns. Westlake finished 14-1 this past season with its only loss to Concord (Calif.) De La Salle in the state bowl championship game.
