On Saturday, while the big game was going on against Michigan State in Lincoln, NE, the Huskers were also signing on another recruit, Robert Lockhart. This will be the 14th commitment for next year so far for the Huskers.

Lockhart currently attends Hinds Community College although he was originally signed with the 2012 class of the Miami Hurricanes. A torn ACL forced him to transfer to Hinds so he could recuperate.

During his first time going through the recruiting process, Lockhart had shown some interest in the program at Nebraska. It was after a visit where he watched the game against Northwestern that he became convinced that Nebraska was the place to him.

According to Lockhart, “That visit reassured me of everything. I liked the play calling, I liked the coaches, and I just loved everything about it.”

Lockhart has been healing well from the knee injury and was able to make four touchdowns and 502 yards in the last eight games. He will be the third receiver for his class along with Demornay Pierson-El and Monte Harriso

Some of the other choices that Lockhart had to choose from included Florida International Ole Miss. He will be allowed to play for a total of two years but will be in Nebraska for three.
