Nebraska loses commitment from heavily-recruited LB in 2021 class
One of the top defensive commitments in Nebraska’s 2021 recruiting class is now reconsidering his options.
Sunday, 3-star linebacker Will Schweitzer announced that he has decided to decommit from Nebraska to explore all options on the table. The Los Gatos, California native had given his verbal pledge to the Huskers back in June.
“After a long talk with my parents and coaches, I have decided to decommit from the University of Nebraska,” Schweitzer wrote on Twitter. “I’d like to say that this has nothing to do with the university, the coaching staff or Husker nation. I am honored that Coach Frost, Coach Chinander and Coach Dawson chose me to play for them. They have been the best mentors anyone could ask for during this recruiting process. THank you coaches from the bottom of my heart.”
Schweitzer is ranked as the No. 35 outside linebacker in the 2021 class and the No. 48 overall prospect out of California. Nationally, Schweitzer is listed as the No. 539 player, regardless of position.
It’s unclear what influenced Schweitzer’s decision, though he recently picked up an offer from Notre Dame. In total, he’s received 25 offers on the recruiting trail.
The Huskers are now down to 13 commits in the 2021 class. They rank 43rd nationally and 9th in the B1G.
