Major is N

Following what has had to have been a trying time for anyone, much less a high school athlete, it would appear the saga is now over. Nebraska head coach issued the following statement regarding defensive back Major Culbert, stating that Major was back with the program, but with certain conditions.

Head Coach Bill Callahan issued the following statement on Wednesday afternoon relative to the status of Major Culbert:

"I had the opportunity to meet today with Major Culbert and his family. After carefully examining all the facts surrounding his situation, we have made the decision to allow Major to join the Nebraska football program. He will be a part of our 105-man roster that will report for fall camp on Aug. 2.

"The charges against Major in Oregon have been reduced to a misdemeanor, but we take this situation very seriously. In order to have his scholarship reinstated, Major has agreed to a series of stringent requirements and restrictions placed on him. We have granted him a second chance to be a part of our program, and accordingly he will operate under a zero tolerance policy from this point forward. We believe his willingness to accept these terms reflects positively on his character and commitment to focus on academics and athletics while here at Nebraska.

"Major will be part of extensive Life Skills sessions that our entire team will go through during fall camp. Additionally, Major will perform community service here in Lincoln as part of his scholarship agreement. I am confident he will respond in a positive manner and be a first-class member of our football team and our community."
