When any player commits, it's usually a long wait until the day they can finally see the field. For some, it is even longer. For Justin Tomerlin, the last two days must have seemed equal to the months he's been waiting to play his ball at Nebraska. Well, now that wait is over and head coach Bill Callahan is already anticipating high expectations for Tomerlin's role for the near future.

Zac Taylor had to feel relieved when he knew former teammate Justin Tomerlin was going to Lincoln.

With the injury to Matt Herian, that's what people are expecting him to do, but now, Tomerlin wishes he didn't have to wait.

Nebraska helped in doing just that for Justin Tomerlin as a late push put them neck and neck with the Spartans, forcing Justin to have to take a step back, think about and decide. He made his decision today.
