The text message from Gabbert simply stated:
"I'm committed to Nebraska."
The Husker nation has picked up a big one in their seventh, known verbal. As a junior, Gabbert passed for 1,523 yards and 20 touchdowns (seven interceptions) and added an additional 458 yards and nine more scores on the ground to help lead his team to an 8-2 record and a trip to the playoffs.
Gabbert: "I have a strong and accurate arm. I have great speed and good escapability. I'm really aggressive and never second guess myself. I want to keep improving in everything and become a better overall quarterback. I'd like to read the plays better and learn to throw into all types of different coverages."
No doubt this is a huge pickup for Nebraska. Coach Shawn Watson led the recruiting efforts for Nebraska with Gabbert.
