The Nebraska Cornhuskers got yet another commit in the 2024 class and according to him, not even his mother knew who he was picking.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team landed itself yet another commit on Saturday. Jacory Barney is one 4-star wide receiver that surprised quite a few people when he picked the Huskers.
The commitment kept a hot streak going for the Nebraska football team. They’ve landed a ton of commitments over the last eight days. However, Barney stood out because it seemed as though he was a shoo-in for the Miami Hurricanes.
It wasn’t just Husker fans that were in the dark on this. They weren’t the only ones who were a bit shocked when Barney picked NU over Miami. The Florida wide receiver told On3 that he even surprised his own mother when he went with Matt Rhule’s new team.
"“You know what’s crazy? I never let them know. It was a shock for everybody. I didn’t even let my mom know. They all found out for the first time when I announced it.”"
