'No-brainer' decision for Brown

Nebraska has grabbed commitment No. 3 in the 2014 class after they offered Drew Brown. Brown, a kicker from Southlake (Texas) Carroll, is the younger brother of Kris Brown who also kicked for Nebraska.

Drew Brown from Southlake (Texas) Carroll is the newest commitment for Nebraska in the 2014 recruiting class. Brown, a 5-foot-10 and 160-pound kicker, is the younger brother of former Husker and NFL kicker Kris Brown. There are more ties back to Nebraska and reasons to want to become a Husker than just big brother though.

"Yes sir, I committed to Nebraska today," Brown said. "It's really something that I have always wanted to do. My mom is from Nebraska and my grandmother still lives in Nebraska. I am excited that she will get to see me play.

"It's really a dream come true to be able to follow my brother to Nebraska, but my brother was just part of why I wanted to come here. Nebraska has a great tradition to producing excellent kickers and I want to be the next one. It is going to motivate me to be the next one."

Brown is in Lincoln for the kicking academy. It's only the end of the first day of the kicking camp and Nebraska already has their kicker of the future. Brown says that getting that offer and being with his family is one of the most memorable moments of his life.

"I am actually up in Nebraska for kicking camp. I had finished up kicking for the day and Bo had asked my family and I to come up and talk to him in his office.

"He told me that they have had their eye on me basically since I was a freshman. When he told me that I had an offer to come to Nebraska it was really a no-brainer. I instantly accepted it.

"Having my family there with me in that moment is something that I am going to remember for the rest of my life. Going to the University of Nebraska has always been a dream of mine. Not just because of my brother or football, but it's an excellent school as well."
