Huskers reel in another JC OL

Just when everyone believed that there wouldn't be anyone to help out in filling spots in this year's recuriting class at offensive tackle, the unthinkable. Nebraska reeled in the second offensive tackle commit in two weeks.

Mesabi Range CTC (Minn.) offensive tackle, Brock Pasteur, visited Nebraska this weekend (1/14). The 6-foot-7 and three hundred plus pound lineman seemed certain that Nebraska wouldn't be his last official visit earlier this week. Has that changed?

"Yeah, I committed to Nebraska. I told Coach Bill Callahan when I committed. He was really excited and glad to hear that I did," Pasteur said.

So what made Pasteur change his mind about taking all his scheduled visits?

"It was the staff, the facilities, the academic support was awesome, and pretty much the fact that I will be playing every weekend in front of 80,000 fans."

"The visit was just real good. They showed me around the school and the town. I ate too much food. Man, I'm still full. It's like negative twelve degrees here in Minnesota so it was really nice in Lincoln."

Pasteur will receive his AA this May and has plans for Nebraska starting in the spring. "I am going to go down on spring break to Lincoln. They are also going to send me some stuff to do while I am still here in Minnesota. Nebraska will be going down to see my mom next week in Florida. It will either be Coach Downing or Coach Wagner."

So what is the plan for Pasteur since his commitment is out of the way and what is his academic status?

"I will be there in June. I'm getting my AA in general studies. Right now the plan is to major in law."

Pasteur was joined by four other official visitors this weekend. the visitors included Husker commits Zach Potter, Jacob Hickman, potential walk-on Dan Gorski, and Butler County C.C. wide-receiver Frantz Hardy. Hardy played at Butler with mid-year transfer Zac Taylor.

Pasteur joins Jordan Picou in the Nebraska offensive line class as the latest to commit. It seems Nebraska has one spot left for offensive tackle which could be filled mid-week by Matt Pipho who will be visiting on Wednesday.
