Irons talks about commitment to Nebraska

Nebraska added the 21st member of the 2014 class last night when Glenn Irons committed to the Huskers. Irons joins New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr teammates Jaevon Walton and Jariah Tolbert in the class.

Glenn Irons from New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr became the 21st member of the 2014 class for Nebraska last night. The 5-foot-11 and 175-pound wide receiver committed on Saturday, the second to last day for his visit, because he had seen enough that made him want to jump in already.

"It was the community, the athletics and the academics that caught my attention," Irons said. "The way that it's set up at Nebraska it's very difficult to fail. If you do fail you weren't focused."

Irons was there with fellow commitment Jariah Tolbert from his high school. They join Jaevon Walton from Edna Karr making this a trifecta for Nebraska to pull three kids from the same high school this year.

"Yeah, having them here really helped me with my decision. I know them, I know who they are and we all know where we come from. It was important to my decision."

Irons had a chance to sit down with Nebraska coaches Tim Beck and Rick Fisher to talk about the offense. They outlined how they saw him getting involved once he gets up there to Lincoln.

"I am going to get a lot of opportunities to get involved either on punt returns, kick returns, as a receiver and the coaching staff even likes me in the backfield a little bit doing jet sweeps. I think that I fit the offense really well."

While on the visit looking at the football facilities was a bit of a double-dip for Irons and Nebraska. "The athletic training facilities really caught my eye because that what I want to study and do after college. I would like to be a physical therapist."

The visit got a perfect rating from Irons. He says that everything that he saw was incredible and he wouldn't have changed anything about the weekend.

"The visit was a "10". Everything that I saw was outstanding. I wouldn't have changed anything about the visit."
