Nebraska lands two-sport standout!

Nebraska might have missed on an opportunity to host River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian safety Hunter Dale during Big Red Weekend. It said a lot about his interest when he still made it in this summer and he will leave Lincoln on Saturday a future Husker.

Nebraska hosted River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian safety Hunter Dale yesterday and today. The three-star safety committed to the Huskers this evening while still on his visit in Lincoln.

”I got to meet with the baseball coaches yesterday while on my visit,” Dale said. “I met with Coach Bo Pelini and he said he had no issues with me playing both sports at Nebraska. That was very important to my decision.”

Getting the approval to play both sports was one important part of the trip for Dale. Another was getting a chance to really sit down and talk with the Nebraska football coaches a little more in person.

”It was great getting a chance to meet Coach Bo Pelini and Coach Charlton Warren. They really made me feel like I fit in and was part of the team already while I was here on my visit.”

Nebraska had some visit help by now fellow commitment, Kendall Bussey. Bussey, from New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman was also in Lincoln with Dale and was helping the Huskers show the No. 68 safety in the nation around the school.

”It was great having Kendall here with us. He already knew his way around and that was helpful. He told me going into the visit how well the coaches, players and everyone treated you. It really is a tight family environment there.”

Nebraska fans will be happy to know that there is a strict team policy in place for John Curtis Christian football players who commit. Those players who do make a commitment are not allowed to take additional visits.

Dale is the 11th known commitment for Nebraska in the class of 2015. He is also the fourth defensive back in the class joining fellow DBs Aaron Williams, Avery Anderson and Eric Lee.

Prior to the commitment of Dale to Nebraska the Huskers ranked No. 27 in the team rankings. Dale helped the class improve to No. 26 overall by overtaking the spot from Kentucky. Recommended Stories
