Nebraska's first commitment in the 2017 class came from an unexpected prospect.
Scout.com's Corey Bender was able to confirm the commitment with Hampton. At this time Big Red Report is still looking for an official comment from the recruit.
"I just felt like it was the right place for me," Hampton told the Lincoln Journal Star. "I researched and looked it up. Coach Bray was telling me a lot about the school. I think it's very strong educationally. I just felt right about it. The right school for me."
The junior had offers from Indiana and Western Michigan as well.
Big Red Report will have more on Hampton's commitment in the next 24 hours.
