Nebraska's top 2021 commitment tweets cryptic message as Huskers are blown out by Illinois
When it rains, it pours.
Thomas Fidone, Nebraska’s top commitment for the class of 2021, didn’t like what he saw on Saturday as the Huskers were getting blown out at home by Illinois.
I’m not sure what to think….

Fidone is a consensus 4-star recruit and the No. 2 tight end in the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 94 overall player in the class.
He’s the only top-200 player currently committed to Nebraska in that class, per the composite.
Fidone’s tweet came in the midst of the Huskers getting blown out by Illinois. The Illini currently lead 41-17 with about 10 minutes left in the game. This would be Illinois’ first win over Nebraska in Lincoln since 1924.
