As the Nebraska Cornhuskers attempt to return to national prominence, they are going to have to get better everywhere and that usually starts up front.
On Wednesday, the Huskers made an addition to their offensive line when they got a commitment from guard Michael Decker.
The 6’4, 280-pound Decker attends Omaha North High School in Omaha, Nebraska.
“He’s got a great relationship with coach Cotton and when Nebraska offered him early I could tell it was always in the back of his mind,” Omaha North coach Larry Martin told Michael Bruntz of 24/7 Sports. “I think he also wanted to go ahead and get it done before the spring game. I think some guys wait till then but I could see Michael not wanting all the hoopla about it. He’s really excited.”
Decker has not yet been ranked by 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings, but attended the Iowa Hawkeyes’ junior day and holds an offer from the Kansas State Wildcats.
He becomes the eighth commitment in the class of 2015 for the Huskers, joining 4-star cornerback Eric Lee, 4-star athlete Avery Anderson, 4-star defensive end Carlos Davis, 4-star offensive tackle Christian Gaylord, 3-star quarterback Kevin Dillman, 3-star athlete Kendall Bussey and 3-star defensive tackle Khalil Davis.
