Nebraska picks up commitment

Another year, another player from City College of San Francisco (Calif.) for Nebraska. This is the second wide receiver in three years for Nebraska from C.C.S.F. as well and it comes to a side of the football that in the 2008 class is already loaded. Now, Nebraska goes out and gets a vertical weapon to go with it's top quarterback and top offensive line class it has going.

Adrian Hilburn, a 6-foot-2 and 190-pound receiver with 4.4-speed, made his college choice of Nebraska. Head Coach George Rush, from San Francisco (Calif.) City College, confirmed the verbal.

"Yes, Adrian Hilburn did commit," Head Coach George Rush did say.

Coach Rush was away from his office and requested to comment further tomorrow. Hopefully an interview can be caught with Hilburn in the next day or so.

Last year at C.C.S.F., Hilburn played in eight games and caught 27 passes, for 366 yards, six touchdowns with his longest coming from 61 yards out. He was the third leading scorer at C.C.S.F. last year as a true freshman.

Hilburn is the eighth known verbal of the Cornhuskers for the 2008 class and the third player in three years to come from C.C.S.F. In 2006, Nebraska signed Maurice Purify and last year signed Zach Lee.
