"I am just really excited about the commitment," Randle said. "I just can't wait to get up there and be part of that program at Nebraska."
The commitment by Randle happened earlier in the day with his coach during his athletic period. His call was to the head coach and had a chance to talk to two assistants.
"I called Nebraska during my athletic period. That was at about 12:00 earlier today. I made the call to Bo Pelini."
There is no second-guessing this commitment by Randle. Randle said that it felt good to tell Nebraska that he wanted to be a Husker. It was obvious to him that the coaches were as excited about it as he was.
"When I got a chance to talk to Coach Ekeler, he was even more jacked up about me committing than Coach Bo Pelini was."
The courtship between Randle and Nebraska is fairly short. The Huskers really picked up attention in the 6-foot-1 and 265-pound defensive tackle only about a week ago.
"Nebraska really started recruiting me about a week ago or so. It's pretty clear though that they were really serious about me."
It seems that Nebraska likes Randle to potentially play the NT position in Lincoln. Randle had an excellent season last year and came in as a second team choice in the district to a teammate that was a senior.
"I played the shade position or the one technique. I had about 80 tackles and six or seven sacks. I was second team all-district as a junior. The first team went to Chase McEntee."
Randle says that he is athletic, he claims a 4.9/40 time, and that his feet are the biggest strengths. At his height, Randle wins the battle of leverage and his quickness of the ball is a plus.
"My feet are my biggest strength. I have good leverage from the defensive tackle position. I am also quick off of the ball."
Randle becomes the third commitment for Nebraska and potentially the third on defense depending on which side of the ball Cole Pensick is asked to play. Shaun Bodtmann joined the class a week after the spring game.
