Huskers nab in-state product

There were a few key recruits that have been in Lincoln for the first and second session of summer camp. Key in a way that there was potential to push themselves into a situation that equaled a Nebraska offer. One of the first offers, following summer camp, went to an in-state product and only a couple of hours after receiving the offer he committed.

John Levorson had a pretty good idea that Nebraska was going to offer. That is why it only took him a couple of hours after having received the offer to call them and commit.

"Yeah, I committed to Nebraska," Levorson said. "I got the offer from Nebraska at about 2:50 today. I knew before it officially happened, so I had a chance to think it through."

Levorson was holding offers from Ohio and Wyoming and those were really two of the biggest thoughts before he committed to Nebraska. He still wanted to be 100% sure.

"I guess that I just wanted a little more time before I made a final decision. I have been wanting to go there ever since recruiting really began and earned some scholarships."

What expedited the process with Levorson was the speed in which Nebraska offered following camp. He was surprised to get it that quickly, but because he got it so soon he knew how much Nebraska thought about him.

"I was pretty surprised to see how soon I got that offer. It really showed to me how much they were interested. They really liked me as a player."

One reason why Levorson has so much upside as a commitment to Nebraska has to be his versatility. He could literally play both sides of the football and if he gained some size could change positions on defense.

"I haven't really talked to them about that. I guess that it could be as a safety, but I am not positive. From what I understand, so far, safety first, then receiver or even linebacker in a few years."

Levorson would be very interesting to project to a number of positions. He measured in at 6-foot-3.25 and 190-pounds. He ran a 4.55 in the 40-yard dash and had a 4.3-second agility time to go with a 32-inch vertical jump.

Levorson said that he will be working out this summer and will be playing AAU basketball. Levorson is the second in-state commitment for Nebraska in three days following Sean Fisher of Omaha (Nebr.) Millard North.
