Waz talks about commitment to Nebraska

On Sunday, the Huskers added two recruits to their 2014 class with the first being Chance Waz from Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson. Waz said it really came down to the staff, the scheme and a chance to play a little longer with a high school teammate.

Chance Waz committed to Colorado back in June. the 5-foot-11 and 170-pound Waz decommitted five months later and just a week after that committed to Nebraska.

"For me it was the coaching staff," Waz said. "The staff there are Nebraska reminds me of the staff I have here in high school. It was also the campus, the facilities and the defensive scheme."

The scheme will allow Waz to do a lot of different things for the Huskers potentially. The staff likes Waz right in the middle of the field patrolling the middle of the field.

"Nebraska likes me as a safety, but they run a 4-2-5 so I could actually do a lot of different things for them. They told me though that they like me in the middle of the defensive secondary."

If you watch Waz's film you will see an instinctual player that breaks quickly, has good athleticism and when he's put in a position to have to make a tackle he can really stick.

"I would say that I am good at seeing plays as the develop in front of me and playing in coverage. I am a good tackler, but my strength is really in coverage."

As stated before, Waz was committed to Colorado for a little over five months. Waz was also holding a handful of other offers. "I chose Nebraska over offers from Colorado, Utah, North Texas, UTEP and Tulsa," Waz said.

Waz took his official visit to Nebraska with teammate and fellow future Husker Trai Mosley. It's pretty well known that the two wanted to play football in college together and that's something that also played into Waz's decision.

"It's exciting that I will get a chance to be his teammate in college. We've known each other since we were in 2nd grade so getting a chance to play together for four more years is great."
