Just moments ago Junior College
safety Daimion Stafford delivered his commitment to the head coach of
the Nebraska coaching staff. Find out what made the talented playmaker
from Chaffey c.c. in California end his recruitment so early, and go
with the Big Red.
It's been sort of a whirlwind recruitment for Daimion Stafford and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Just a little over a week ago he received the offer from NU, but now just a few short days later, he can call himself a member of the Husker family.
"Did you get my text Kevin," said an excited Daimion. "I just committed about 20 minutes ago, I talked to coach Carl and coach Bo, they both made me feel really good about the commitment. It felt good to pull that trigger today."
What did they say?
"They both sounded real happy about me being a Cornhusker, and working with me to make me a better player. They said they feel like I'm one of the best players at my position in the nation, and they want me to come bring that to Nebraska."
From when I spoke to you on Sunday, you sounded like you already had your foot halfway in the door?
"Yeah, it's a dream come true to play for a school like Nebraska. When coach Carl came by my school the other day and got more film and my transcripts, I was really ready to commit then. Then when I talked to coach Carl this morning I told him I was ready to commit, but he wanted me to call coach Bo first.
"So I did, and that was my first time talking to the head
coach. He seemed like a real good man, and I look forward to playing and
learning from him. He sounded excited to get me.
"Im glad it's over with now, and I feel good about the decision. With everything Nebraska has to offer with the tradition, coaches, fans, I couldn't go wrong."
But in situations like this the inevitable question always arises since you haven't visited the campus yet. Will you stick with this commitment if other offers come in?
"Yes, I'm completely done, no visits, no nothing. I'm a
Cornhusker, that's all there is to it."
Daimion's secondary skills will be a welcomed addition to the Nebraska defense, as he has 3 years to play 2.
