Big game. Big recruiting day. And there's already big news.
The Huskers gained their 14th commitment of this class on Saturday morning from JUCO wide receiver Robert Lockhart.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Lockhart is an intriguing prospect. He's currently at Hinds (Miss.) Community College, but he was originally a Miami Hurricane, signing with their 2012 class.
He then suffered a torn ACL and transferred to Hinds.
He told HuskersIllustrated.com he liked Nebraska during his first time through the recruiting process back then. And after his recent visit for the Northwestern game, he was completely sold.
Yeah, watching a game-winning up Hail Mary at close probably didn't hurt Nebraska's chances.
"My visit to Nebraska for the Northwestern game went great and I was real high on the Huskers out of high school," Lockhart told HuskersIllustrated. "That visit reassured me of everything. I liked the play calling, I liked the coaches and I just loved everything about it.
Lockhart has bounced back well from his injury. This year, he has 502 yards and four touchdowns through eight games. The receiver said he's happy with how his knee has come back from injury.
Rich Fisher was the lead recruiter of Lockhart, who joins Monte Harrison and Demornay Pierson-El as the third receiver in this class.
He chose the Huskers over Ole Miss and Florida International. He'll have three years to play two.
