Quarterback Tyler Gabbert has committed to Nebraska. He becomes the fifth commitment in this Husker recruiting class. "It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up," Gabbert told the Journal Star. Gabbert committed to NU after concluding a visit to Lincoln on Tuesday. "I had Nebraska at the top before the visit so this was almost a reassurance thing. I'm just glad everything worked out the way it did," he said. Of course, Tyler's older brother, Blaine, committed to Nebraska before the 2007. Then came all the chaos of that year and a coaching change. Blaine ended up signing with Missouri, where he'll likely start this year as a sophomore. Tyler got a good taste of Nebraska through his brother's recruitment process. "I've known Coach (Shawn) Watson for a while so that definitely helped a lot," Gabbert said. "Not only is he my position coach and offensive coordinator. He's like my head recruiter. My whole family going through (the recruiting process) a second time, everything I guess was a little smoother. With (Blaine's)experience at Nebraska, I was a little more comfortable Lincoln heading up there for camp and all that."
