Big Red Report confirmed this morning with Lester Ward that he is a future Husker.
Ward is a 6-3, 200 pound rangy running back, who his head coach (Glen West) compares to Eric Dickerson in his style of running, Dickerson known as an electric long-strider with deceptive speed.
Ward makes commitment number 23, and he's the 10th commitment to the Huskers since the year began.
Ward missed most of his senior season with a hamstring injury, but Ward said that he averaged approximately 100 yards per game during the four games he played.
Big Red Report will bring you more with Lester himself later.
