“No” is the worst thing the Nebraska recruiting staff can hear. A one syllable response isn’t about to deter them considering the momentum this cycle has gained.
The Big Red needs more help at safety and Oklahoma City, OK’s Will Sunderland would be an amazing get. If the Cornhuskers reel him in, his addition to Eric Lee and Avery Anderson might make this the best defensive back class Nebraska’s ever had.
This is the challenge that sly Charlton Warren has in front of him.
Just blessed that University of Nebraska offer me!!

The 6’3″ 175 pound safety ranks as the No. 14 safety, No. 4 prospect in the state and No. 229 athlete in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite Index. In a nutshell: He’s worth the hype.
Conventional wisdom says that he’ll choose an in-state school. 10 out of 10 recruiting gurus who add their votes to 247Sports’ crystal ball believe he’ll be a Sooner. However, we’re only on the verge of May.
If Warren can talk Sunderland in to taking in a prime-time showdown (oh, I don’t know, maybe Miami?), perhaps Sunderland might consider heading North.
