Nebraska has crossed over into enemy territory for its latest commitment.

On Saturday, the Huskers received a verbal pledge from three-star outside linebacker Seth Malcom, a native of Tabor, Iowa. Malcom became the ninth player in the 2021 recruiting cycle to commit to Nebraska. He made his announcement official via Twitter.

“I would like to thank the Tabor community for all the support,” Malcom wrote on Twitter. “With all of that being said I am officially 100% committed to the University of Nebraska.”

Malcom is the second player from the state of Iowa to commit to the Huskers during this cycle. Three-star offensive guard Henry Lutovsky, a native of Mount Pleasant, committed in November 2019.

Per 247Sports, Malcom is listed as a 6-foot-3, 195-pound backer. He ranks as the No. 17 player from Iowa and the No. 78 outside linebacker of this cycle.

Along with Nebraska, Malcom received five other scholarship offers. He picked the Huskers over Minnesota, Iowa State, Kansas State, Boise State and Wyoming.

With Malcom’s commitment, Nebraska’s 2021 class ranks 39th nationally and 10th in the B1G.
