Chalk Up Another

Lester Ward

It's almost signing day and the commits aren't stopping as Nebraska gets another, this one from the Lone Star state.

Big Red Report confirmed this morning with Lester Ward that he is a future Husker.

Brenham comes from Brenham High School in Brenham, Texas, home of current Husker cornerback, freshman Shawn Sullivan.

Ward is a 6-3, 200 pound rangy running back, who his head coach (Glen West) compares to Eric Dickerson in his style of running, Dickerson known as an electric long-strider with deceptive speed.

Ward makes commitment number 23, and he's the 10th commitment to the Huskers since the year began.

Ward missed most of his senior season with a hamstring injury, but Ward said that he averaged approximately 100 yards per game during the four games he played.

Big Red Report will bring you more with Lester himself later.
