He's "N"!

With all the inexperience on the defensive line last year, it was no wonder that there were some issues. The only way to address those is to have experience back, but keep plugging able bodies into that position. Recruiting is where it starts, of course, and Nebraska got a big addition to the team, figuratively and literally.

Eddie Brown got some visitors today. And following that visit, he went from being a recruit to a commit. Much of the speculation was that if Texas A&M offered him, he would be a future Aggie. They didn't, and when Husker coaches arrived at his school today, he gave them the official word.

"Yeah, I committed," Brown said "I liked the place and they obviously need defensive linemen right now."

Brown did cite the lack of the Aggie offer being the straw on the camel's back per se, as to why he decided now was the time. But he also said of the Husker program that it was a place he simply "liked more" than any other he had seen.

As for where Nebraska plans to play him, one of Brown's strengths is that you can't pigeonhole him into just one position and the Husker coaching staff wasn't going to try that either. "They say that they will play me wherever I fit the best, basically anywhere on the defensive line," Brown said. "It doesn't matter to me. I'm kind of a bull out there, no matter where I am at."

Brown said that as a senior, he had "an interception, eight sacks, eight pressures, 60 unassisted tackles and 55 assists."

He was the defensive MVP for the district.

Brown marks the 18th commit for this class and joins Quintin Toailoa on the defensive interior.
