Add another defensive line commit to Nebraska’s 2013 recruiting class.

After taking an official visit to Lincoln last weekend, Tampa (Fla.) Gaither defensive end Ernest Suttles has now switched his commitment from Iowa State to Nebraska. The news was first reported by HuskerOnline and Big Red Report.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Suttles is a three-star prospect according to 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN, and a two-star prospect according to Scout. He committed to the Cyclones in October, took an official visit to Missouri in December, and also had offers from West Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana, among other schools.

He’s viewed as a pass-rushing defensive end, and becomes the third defensive end recruit in the class, joining JUCO prospect Randy Gregory and A.J. Natter.

Here’s his 2012 highlight video.
