Huskers get a big one

Nebraska has been on a bit of a tear lately. This will be the third reported commitment in the past couple of days for Nebraska and it's a big one. This player wanted to make the best decision, but at the same time get it over with so he can focus on winning a championship.

Nebraska has sealed up a commitment from Zach Lee. Lee, a 6-foot-2 and 200 pound commitment with 4.6 speed, from San Francisco (Calif.) Community College made his college choice today.

"Yes he did commit today," head coach George Rush from C.C. San Francisco said. "We got that over with a little while ago."

Lee recently started to get attention from the likes of USC and Oklahoma. Coach Rush confirmed that Lee started to get a lot more attention recently.

"He was. I think that he felt that Nebraska had been with him since the jump and stayed the course with him."

Along with Nebraska finding Lee early and staying on him, there were a few other things that were going Nebraska's way for Lee.

"I also think that he liked the way that they threw the football, the success that they are having in the Big 12 and the visit that Lincoln was a great fit for him."

The decision clears the way for Lee now to work on his grades and focus on a championship. "He decided to just concentrate on winning a championship for us, get the monkey off of his back and wanted to move on."
