Nebraska has gone into SEC country to receive a pledge from a talented inside linebacker in the 2021 recruiting class.

Friday, the Huskers received a verbal commitment from three-star linebacker Christopher Paul, a native of Cordele, Georgia. He made his announcement with a Twitter post.

“Thank you to all the coaches/universities that reached out, and gave me the opportunity to pay at the next level,” Paul wrote. “Thank you to my family, teammates, and coaches for helping me get to this point in my career! With that being said, I want to announce that I will be committing to…THE University OF NEBRASKA.”

Paul becomes the fourth player in the 2021 recruiting cycle to commit to the Huskers. They currently rank 17th nationally and sixth in the B1G.

Paul is listed as a three-star talent from Georgia and is ranked just outside the top 50 among players from his home state, coming in at No. 51. He’s also ranked as the No. 25 inside linebacker and No. 629 nationally.

Nine schools offered Paul during the recruiting cycle. Along with Nebraska, he received interest Cincinnati, Akron, Austin Peay, Georgia State, Michigan State, TCU, UCF and West Virginia.

Nebraska now has two linebackers committed in the 2021 class.
