Huskers pick up a late night receiver commit
Nebraska's offense has been adding some key pieces to their recruiting class over the last couple of days.
On Friday, the Huskers picked up a commitment from four-star offensive tackle Nick Gates and late Saturday night NU added New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr wide receiver Glenn Irons to their class.
Irons officially announced his commitment on Twitter.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Irons will bring a nice dose of speed to the Nebraska receiving corps and will likely figure in as a kick returner as well.
"My quickness and my speed," Irons said when asked to describe his strengths as a player in an earlier interview with HuskerOnline.com. "I really feel like I have the speed to separate during my routes. I feel like I can get a lot of separation from the defense.
"I don't really know my exact stats, but I know I had over 60 catches for over 1,000 yards and I had 12 receiving touchdowns. I had nine total kick and punt return touchdowns and I made All-State, All-Metro, and All-District."
Irons is currently in the middle of his official visit to Nebraska along with his teammate and fellow Husker wide receiver commit Jariah Tolbert. Edna Karr is also home to linebacker Jaevon Walton who committed to NU back in November.
Nebraska now has 21 commitments for the class of 2014. HuskerOnline.com will have more details on Irons' decision following his official visit to Nebraska tomorrow.
