Williams chooses Nebraska

The 2015 class for Nebraska is definitely on the back half of being put together. With the last commitment coming a month ago the Huskers reeled in No. 11 today when Aaron Williams from Atlanta (Ga.) Carver committed to the Huskers.

The 2015 class for Nebraska gained another on Thursday when talented defensive back Aaron Williams from Atlanta (Ga.) Carver chose the Huskers. The 5-foot-11 and 181-pound Williams picked Nebraska at Carver's spring game on Thursday night. The news was first reported by 247sports.com and confirmed by Big Red Report in a text message to the three-star defensive back.

Williams visited Lincoln back in April for the annual spring game. He got there on Thursday night and came away with a good feeling about how he would fit in the Nebraska defensive secondary.

"Oh yeah, I think that I would fit in their defense," Williams said. "I like how Nebraska sees their safety and their cornerback spots as being inter-changeable. They run a lot of man and zone coverage and they see me as a nickel back or a guy that can play both positions in their defense."

Carver head coach Darren Myles speaks highly of Williams on and off the field. He commends how Williams responded to getting thrown into the mix at an early age and really taking on the challenge of early playing time in his high school career.

"It really is great to have a player like Aaron on the football team," Carver head coach Darren Myles said. "You just see the film, but I see him in the halls and in person and he's really a great kid off of the field as well.

"He an intelligent player. He was forced to play and to be a starter at a young age. He was a free safety as a freshman and was a first team all-region selection in a very competitive level of football here in Georgia."

Carver has their spring game this evening and BigRedReport.com will bring you comments of the commitment as soon as possible from the newest future Husker.
