Huskers nab four-star John Raridon

The Huskers rolled on the field this evening against Illinois. Nebraska then went and landed one of the best 2016 players in the nation.

Nebraska came out and executed on offense tonight against Illinois and it paid off with a pair of 2016 commits. First it was four-star offensive guard Bryan Brokop from New Lenox (Ill.) Lincoln-Way West. A second followed shortly after.

John Raridon, from West Des Moines (Iowa) Valley, confirmed that he committed via text message to BigRedReport.com. The 6-foot-4 and 270-pound offensive guard is considered the No. 18 players in the Scout.com Top 300 for 2016 and is the No. 2 guard in the class.

"I really love the coaching staff," Raridon said. "I also love the facilities here at Nebraska and it's just a great atmosphere. It's really tough to beat."

Nebraska came out and beat Illinois 45-14 tonight. It was a dominating win by the Huskers who had 624 yards of total offense and ran for 458 yards. Raridon sees a fit that he likes on the Nebraska offensive line.

"I think that I fit in well with the time of offensive line that Nebraska wants. I am also willing to go to work for it."

Raridon was holding offers from teams like Oklahoma, Iowa, Wisconsin and others before choosing the Huskers.
