"There were some problems with the announcement today," Yancy said. "It kind of fell through, so we just started telling family and friends what the decision was."
The message that Yancy wanted to deliver is right here: "We want to let everyone hear it. It's Nebraska. I am going to Nebraska."
Yancey has known for a few days now, but says wanted to release the information today.
"I've known, officially, since today. But, really I knew sometime over the weekend. It was really the right place for me."
Big Red Report will catch up with William Yancy again in the coming days to talk with him about his commitment.
