A heavily-recruited wide receiver out of Texas has given his verbal pledge to Nebraska. He gave his commitment to the Huskers on Independence Day.
Three-star wide receiver Latrell Neville has committed to Nebraska over offers from 42 other schools. He’s considered to be one of the top 100 receivers in the 2021 recruiting class. Neville made his announcement with a post on Twitter.
“I want to thank God for blessing me with the talent to play the game that I love at the collegiate level. Today marks the beginning of a new journey in my career,” Neville wrote. “With constant prayer and the guidance I’ve received from my friends, family, and coaches closest to me this decision would not be possible.
“I would like to thank all the universities and their staffs for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to further my academic and athletic career at their institution. I am eternally grateful. With that being sad after careful deliberation I would like to announce that I will be committing and taking my talents to the University of Nebraska.”
