It probably didn't hurt a five passing touchdown performance by Nebraska this past weekend when it came to getting a commitment from this player last night. The Huskers pick up their first commitment to the 2011 class since David Santos committed on July 31st. Who is the latest commitment for Nebraska?
The Huskers showed last weekend against Oklahoma State
that they can beat you one of two ways. They can either stop you with their defense or they can outscore you with their offense. Offense wasn't a word that was said too much in 2009 in Lincoln, but now it's said a lot.
After a 51-point performance against Oklahoma State with five of the touchdowns coming on throws the Huskers have added a wide receiver to the class. A source has verified that Taariq Allen, a 6-foot-3 and 180-pound wide receiver from Weston (Mass.) The Rivers School, committed to Nebraska last night.
Allen was offered by Nebraska after a summer camp in Lincoln. Nebraska was his leader until an offer came from nearby UConn. Allen re-opened things up though when it came to his commitment. Big Red Report will be following up with Allen as soon as he is available.
