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."
