Huskers land four-star safety Marquel Dismuke
Nebraska has landed a commitment from four-star Calabasas, Calif. defensive back Marquel Dismuke today.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dismuke had been committed to Cal until five days ago when he announced his intentions to re-open his recruitment. It didn't take long for him to decide that he wanted to become a Husker as he informed head coach Mike Riley and his staff of his decision today while they were in Atlanta for the first day of their satellite camp tour.
Dismuke was part of a large group of players from the Team 19 7-on-7 squad that visited Nebraska this past March. It was during that time where he was really able to establish his relationship with Riley and the coaching staff.
"Keyshawn has talked about Mike Riley a lot so I was happy to meet him and talk with him," Dismuke said following his visit to Lincoln last March. "I was able to spend time with him and get his thoughts on college football and a lot of stuff like that. They were all just bonding with us today and getting to know us and we were able to get to know the campus and all of that."
Following the visit, Dismuke told HuskerOnline that he was impressed with Nebraska's "tradition and their campus" in addition to hitting it off with the coaching staff.
Dismuke committed to Nebraska over offers from Michigan, Arizona State, Cal and Mississippi State among others. He is ranked as a the No. 19 safety in the nation and the No. 45 overall player in the state of California for 2016. Dismuke gives NU nine commits for the class of 2016 and is the second four-star prospect in the class joining West Des Moines (Iowa) Valley offensive lineman John Raridon.
