Nebraska's first commitment out of spring weekend came from a somewhat surprising prospect.
Brenden Jaimes, an offensive tackle from Lake Travis high school in Texas, gave his verbal pledge to Nebraska on Saturday just hours after the game.
"First of all I would like to give all my glory to God because without him none of this would be possible," said Jaimes in a tweet. "I would like to thank all of the college coaches and programs who recruited me. I truly enjoyed the process. Thank you to all my friends and family who stuck by my side throughout my whole life...I would like to hank the Nebraska football program for giving me an opportunity to live out my dream playing college football. I'm honored to say that I'm officially committed to the University of Nebraska.
Jaimes had offers from California, Colorado, Houston, Illinois, Texas Tech and others.
"Jaimes possesses an outstanding frame for the offensive tackle position. He has very good height and ample space for additional bulk as he matures physically. Jaimes is an aggressive run-blocker who relishes his opportunities to drive block," said Scout analyst Gabe Brooks. "He plays through the whistle and isn't afraid to make tone-setting hits and blocks on opponents at the second level. Because of his aforementioned frame, Jaimes has a very high ceiling as a pass protector."
