The Gator Bowl win for Nebraska was big in a number of different ways. The team was getting back to as healthy as they could have been and won a game that many picked for them to lose. It's a positive headed into the spring.
But before the spring gets here there is a class that needs to be finalized. The commitments had some strong opinions about what they saw out of the Huskers when they beat Georgia and shared it with BigRedReport.com:
Drew Brown: "I thought that they played a great game as a team in all three areas. They played for each other an won a tough game against a good opponent."
Terrell Clinkscales: "It was great, man. I told people that Coach Bo (Pelini) was going to pull out that ninth win. He prepared them well. I loved the way the defense played."
Byerson Cockrell: "I thought that the game went great the other day and that the offense executed well throughout the game as well as the defense. I was impressed."
Zack Darlington: "It's a big win and the senior class deserved it!"
D.J. Foster: "I wasn't able to watch the game because I am at the Semper Fidelis All-American game, but it was a big win for the program and for getting recruits."
Luke Gifford: "Huge win! They looked really good. Both the offense and the defense made big plays. The defense came through when we really needed them too. I can't wait for this summer and to get started!"
Josh Kalu: "It was a great game. The defense played great. The offense stepped up big. It was exactly what they needed to start the next year off right."
Joe Keels: "They played a great game. It's the team that I knew that they could be and they came to play."
Robert Lockhart: "It was a great win! I am excited to get there and showcase my talent."
Peyton Newell: "The defense has definitely improved this year and so has the offense. I thought that both sides of the ball played a complete game as well."
Demornay Pierson-El: "I thought that they showed a lot of pride and fought hard! They made big plays when needed and made some big stops on defense. I looked like they were having fun out there. There will be more to come in the future."
From the defense to the offense to the future; the 2014 recruits have spoken and are excited about the current state of affairs in Lincoln and for things to come.
