Recruit makes good on pledge, officially commits

You have to admire a guy that knows what he wants to do and Brodrick Hunter certainly had a good idea. Even up to his visit to Nebraska, Hunter had a pretty good idea of what his immediate future had in store. Well, this weekend, we found out if Hunter put some finality to that recruiting process, pulling the trigger as he said he might over a week before he arrived.

With his official visit over and as he prepares to leave for home in the morning, Brodrick Hunter the prep-star now becomes Brodrick Hunter, future Nebraska Cornhusker.

It was a decision that not just a week ago he said in a prior interview we did that he would indeed commit on his official to Nebraska.

Hunter made good on that statement. "It was exactly what I wanted." Hunter said. "The fans, the coaches, everything, it was tight. I knew it was where I wanted to be."

That feeling of comfort was only helped by the familiarity he gained with the players and coaches while there, Hunter saying that he didn't have a single negative experience with anyone he met while in Lincoln. "Everyone was great." He said. "My host was Cory Ross and he's a pretty cool guy, but I got along with everyone."

On the year, Hunter said that he's averaging around 25 yards a catch not even to the mid-point of his season. That's actually down from his almost 30 yard average at one point, Hunter having caught 15 balls for over 420 yards.

Now that his decision is behind him, though, Hunter says he can concentrate on his season and not worry about any of the recruiting trials and tribulations of the future. "It's off my shoulders and now, I am just looking ahead." He said. "I want to finish this season up strong and not have to worry about anything other than playing."

He'll play here and eventually as a Husker, something that after seeing a game in person, he's excited to do. "I saw the potential there." He said. "They made a lot of mental mistakes, but you can fix those. I saw that as a receiver, you can get lots of opportunities in this offense. If you have the hot hand, it's going to you."

While Brodrick said that he's a totally solid Husker, he did also say that he might take more official visits in the future. As to the reason why, Hunter simply said this. "I just want to see other places, but I am a very solid Husker."

Hunter chose Nebraska over Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Texas Tech and LSU. Oklahoma and Wisconsin had offered him in writing, according to Hunter.
