Three-star offensive tackle Jeremiah Sirles called Scout.com this morning and informed us that he had made his college commitment. "I committed to Nebraska this morning," he says.
Why the Huskers? He comments, "The people, the coaches and the atmosphere. The atmosphere is amazing. I left my official thinking, 'What can be better than this?"
He says that NU staff was excited to get on board and Sirles is ready to make a contribution to the program. "They have a tradition of having a big, strong offensive line and they have a four-star center commit and a three-star tackle and are building the base line for the future of this offensive line."
Sirles had a number of offers but says it came down to NU and Oregon. Now that he has committed, he says he is completely done with recruiting. He notes, "I told myself once I commit there is no playing around. If a coach gives me his word I want give mine once I have said I will play for them."
Sirles also liked the fact the Pelini is "bringing the tradition back to Nebraska."
The Lakewood (Co.) Bear Creek product has scored a 20 on the ACT and carries a 3.2 GPA so qualifying will not be a problem. He would like to major in business with a focus on sports marketing.
