Coach verifies Stafford's commitment

Nebraska was set to load up on defensive recruits and they got a great part of that this weekend. Nebraska needed defensive lineman and one more linebacker. Nebraska had all of those positions in this weekend with the hope of getting some commitments. Nebraska has reeled in three so far from this weekend.

Austin Stafford wasn't available for comment yet, but Coach Casey Moreno from Hayward (Calif.) knew that Stafford had committed.

"He did commit," Coach Casey Moreno said. "He didn't call me, but Coach Wagner did."

While Coach Moreno wasn't with Stafford this weekend it was apparent in the conversation with Coach Dennis Wagner that things went very well this weekend.

"They were very impressed with Austin; his character, his demeanor and how he carried himself. They were also very impressed with his mom and how the visit went with both of them."

"All of that added with his playing ability and his athleticism means that they are very excited to have him."
