Seisay goes N

It's been pins and needles for Husker fans recently waiting for another commitment. Junior College signing day is Wednesday and Nebraska was waiting to hear back from Mohammed Seisay from Thatcher (Ariz.) Eastern Arizona. Seisay had been favoring Nebraska until a recent visit to Arkansas. It was down to Arkansas and Nebraska, but he chose one tonight.

Mohammed Seisay is going back to DI football. The standout cornerback from Thatcher (Ariz.) Eastern Arizona originally attended Memphis and chose to transfer to a junior college in an effort to play DI ball again in a better conference.

Seisay had been favoring Nebraska all long, but recently struggled with a decision coming back from a recent official visit to Arkansas. EAC Head Coach John O'Meara said earlier today to BigRedReport.com, "It's 50-50. I know that he was going to talk to his family a lot about his decision today."

Tonight on Twitter Seisay announced that he will be taking his talent to Nebraska. FoxSportsNext.com's Jason Jewell confirmed the news with a text message from Seisay.

"Thank you to everyone this has been a crazy time for my family as well as myself," said Seisay. "I would like to say that I WILL BE A BLACKSHIRT.

"It's bittersweet. I wish that I could attend both institutions. Nebraska fits my skill set. I wish Arkansas well and I know they will be in the race for a National Championship. And I hope that I get to play against Arkansas in the National Championship next year. Arkansas fans made it difficult to decide, but it came down to my relationship with Coach Corey Raymond.

Seisay finished the 2011 season at EAC with six interceptions returning two for touchdowns.
