Farmer pulls trigger after morning camp

Nebraska has landed three-star talent Tanner Farmer after their morning camp session.

While thunderstorms boomed the Nebraska football camp on Monday, the Huskers got a boom on the recruiting side of things as well.

Highland offensive guard Tanner Farmer, the nation's No. 50 offensive guard in the country, committed to Nebraska after the morning camp session, a session he participated in.

Before deciding, the soon to be senior also had offers from Illinois, Missouri, and Western Michigan.

"He told me ‘this is where I need to be,'" said Brian Farmer, Tanner's father. "He then said, ‘I'm going to commit dad.'

"I told him to slow down, that I needed to call his mother. But he was persistent, ‘this feels like home dad. It's where I need to be.'"

Farmer has a 4.37 cumulative GPA and a 27 ACT, which has also attracted more of the Ivy League schools.

By the way, it sounds like his mother is now all N.
