Anderson flips to Nebraska

Arizona State commitment Avery Anderson from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek made the trip to Lincoln this weekend for Nebraska's junior day. The four-star cornerback left Nebraska a future Husker.

Avery Anderson came to Lincoln this weekend a future Arizona State Sun Devil. He left Lincoln as a future Nebraska Cornhusker. The 4-star cornerback from Colorado Springs confirmed the news with Big Red Report shortly after it hit the Twitter world.

"Yes sir I am a future Husker!" Anderson said. "I did flip on my commitment to Nebraska. My family and I talked about it a lot. It was the best decision for me and my family."

The 6-foot-1 and 174-pound Anderson has a connection to the Nebraska coaching staff that he didn't have in a previous visit. The secondary coach came from Air Force and his father is also there in Colorado Springs.

"My father knows Coach Charlton Warren," said Anderson. "My dad is stationed at the Air Force Academy and works a lot with the athletic department there. I love Coach Warren and it really helped with me and my decision to commit to Nebraska."

The decision by Anderson follows Eric Lee and his choice to be a Husker last night. The two have traveled to Nebraska before and while they are not teammates now they are tremendous friends and look forward to being teammates one day.

"It's awesome that Eric and I are going to be teammates," Anderson said. "We aren't now, we are just training partners, and we are great friends. This is a great opportunity for both of us at Nebraska."

Anderson is a four-star prospect and the nation's No. 25 CB in the 2015 class. National recruiting analyst Brandon Huffman weighed in on Anderson's commitment.

"Another solid pickup for the Huskers, especially since he seemed so locked in with Arizona State," said Huffman. "He and Eric Lee talked about playing together in college, and I would have expected that to be at Arizona State, but instead, Nebraska benefits from their friendship and picks up the top two players in Colorado for 2015 already."
