Walton switches commitment to Nebraska

A former UL commitment, Jaevon Walton switched his commitment to Nebraska on Saturday.

Shortly after landing junior college wide receiver Robert Lockhart on Saturday morning, the Nebraska coaches announced another "BOOM" on Twitter.

Jaevon Walton, who visited Lincoln during the Huskers contest against Northwestern, pulled the trigger giving linebacker coaches Ross Els a call.

"It was the family atmosphere I felt in Lincoln," Walton said. "The coaches said that they were waiting for my commitment to come through."

Walton is currently the nation's No. 70 middle linebacker in the 2014 class. He currently has offers from Missouri, Louisiana, and Southern Miss. Before pledging to Nebraska, Walton was a UL commitment. Walton is cousin to Nebraska freshman tight end Cethan Carter.

The senior had to head to work Saturday afternoon, meaning his conversation with Big Red Report was short, but did have a message for Husker fans.

"Get ready for an exciting 2014 class."
