Following the Nebraska football recruiting staff’s adventure to bring in wide receiver Spencer Tears, he’s opted out of his verbal commitment to the Cornhuskers.
Decommitting from Nebraska…
— GREATNESS #⃣1⃣ (@Im_Uno1) June 4, 2014
The Oak Lawn, IL native originally committed to the Huskers in April after the Red-White Spring Game. He’s now ranked as the No. 85 receiver and No. 10 in-state prospect by the 247Sports Composite Index. Other offers Tears currently holds include Indiana, Purdue, Ball State and Bowling Green among others.
It’s quite possible that upon the news of Damore’ea Stringfellow’s transfer becoming official, Tears decided to opt out. Keep in mind that Stringfellow will have two years invested at the college level, regardless of whether he’s granted a waiver to play immediately.
This may actually be a win-win for both sides. Nebraska now goes into a recruit’s home with them being aware of the transfer and knowing where they sit should they commit.
While it’s never fun to see a decommitment, Tears’ departure from the Huskers’ commit list seems best for both parties. The Big Red now sits at 10 commitments for this cycle.
