Nebraska picks up LB Talan on signing day
Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan linebacker Adrienne Talan represented one of the lone prospects that could fall Nebraska's way on National Signing Day and that's exactly what happened.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Talan just announced his commitment and intentions to sign with the Huskers during a ceremony held at Flanagan High School.
Talan had committed to head coach Mike Riley and linebackers coach Trent Bray last November while they were at Oregon State. However, Talan opened his recruitment back up after Riley and Bray moved on to Nebraska.
The athletic linebacker was one of the first official visitors Riley hosted as the Huskers' new head man on the weekend of December 12. He went on to take additional visits to TCU on Jan. 16, Pittsburgh on Jan. 23 and Temple on Jan. 30 before announcing his decision publicly today.
When Riley was hired at Nebraska he identified the linebacker position as the greatest need in this recruiting class. The addition of Talan definitely goes a long way in helping to address those needs as the Flanagan product also joins Dedrick Young, Tyrin Ferguson, Mohamed Barry and perhaps even athlete Antonio Reed as additions to the linebacker corps.
Talan ultimately chose the Huskers over Temple - the first program to have offered - and late pushes from TCU and Pat Narduzzi with the Pitt Panthers.
Barring any other late surprises, Nebraska closes out Riley's first class with 20 total commitments hailing from 13 different states.
